The Washington Post reports on a new study on how racism drives opposition to paying college football players, here:

Racial prejudice is driving opposition to paying college athletes. Here’s the evidence.

… To find out whether racial prejudice influences white opinion on paying college athletes, we conducted a survey of opinions on “pay for play” policies using the 2014 CCES.

In a statistical analysis that controlled for a host of other influences, we found this: Negative racial views about blacks were the single most important predictor of white opposition to paying college athletes.

The more negatively a white respondent felt about blacks, the more they opposed paying college athletes.

    The real question is how much did vegas pay them to blow that lead? If they would have let the academic side know we could have increased our endowment ten fold at halftime.

      Tempting, but NCAA rule 10.3 specifically prohibits the University President from gambling, and UO employees can be fired for violations of NCAA rules. (Or at least FAR Jim O’Fallon tried to get me fired for what he thought was one.)

      Title:10.3 – Sports Wagering Activities.
      The following individuals shall not knowingly participate in sports wagering activities or provide information to individuals involved in or associated with any type of sports wagering activities concerning intercollegiate, amateur or professional athletics competition: (Adopted: 4/26/07 effective 8/1/07)

      (a) Staff members of an institution’s athletics department;

      (b) Nonathletics department staff members who have responsibilities within or over the athletics department (e.g., chancellor or president, faculty athletics representative, individual to whom athletics reports);

      (c) Staff members of a conference office; and

      (d) Student-athletes.

    Does it prevent the UO foundation from gambling? Is that what investing is?
