Student-Athlete Compensation

For the longest time the NCAA has used the veil of amateurism as a way to act monopolistically and take advantage of student-athletes. They successfully stifled financial competition in college sports (Barro) and have handed out hefty paychecks to just about everyone in the industry except for the actual laborers themselves. However, as collegiate sports have developed into a billion dollar industry, former and current players (specifically FBS football and Division 1 basketball players) have begun to speak up and challenge the restrictions imposed by the NCAA. Recently, 22 former and current collegiate athletes, headed by former UCLA basketball star, Edward O’Bannon, brought a class action lawsuit against the NCAA to the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. My policy paper discusses this case, its ramifications and the reasons why it was necessary. Ultimately, I offer recommendations to the NCAA as to how they should approach the groundbreaking changes set to take place in the near future.
