    Bottom line - can't happen because you can't pay two sports and not pay other sports or women's sports absent MASSIVE Congressional legislation changes, period.

    Not sure why folks act like the univerisities can start cutting pay checks.

    Free college education that costs the rest of us $$$. Sure seems like a pretty nice benefit to me. Did I mention how nice the athletic dorms, cafeteria and tutors are?

    Don't get me wrong, I don't blame the athletes for taking the handouts & under-the-table stuff, but don't tell me they aren't being compensated.
