NCAA scholarships

5/30/2010: Alan Scher Zagier of the AP writes on what happens to NCAA division I scholarship players if the coach decides he/she wants them off the team. They lose all their funding, and if they want to finish their degree and are out of state, they pay out of state tuition. Compare this to how we treated Bellotti, and the 7 year contract we gave what’s his name. What prevents a college from offering a better deal – say a 4 year guarantee? NCAA rules. Why is it legal for the NCAA to have rules restricting what can be offered in contracts between the schools and the players? They have a special anti-trust exemption from congress. Why do they have his exemption? Because the coaches lobbied for it, so they would get the profits instead of the players, as happens in the pros.
