A first step in paying college athletes and reforming the NCAA

NCAA men’s basketball tournament MVP from the University of Connecticut, Shabazz Napier, led his “Hungry Huskies” to the title over Kentucky 60-54, but Napier’s comments off the court about paying college athletes and student-athletes possibly organizing a labor union have really generated more attention on the billion-dollar business of college sports. Phil Vandervort, sitting in for John Carlson, offers a critical first step in paying the student-athletes that may stave off unions and build some equity for the players.
