This article addresses the seminal issue in O'Bannon v. NCAA lawsuit filed in the USDC-Northern District of California. Paying college players while they are student-athletes has huge risks. The student athlete's mind-set and purpose could become distorted. Also, wealthier schools could buy up talent and disrupt the competitive balance. Paying student-athletes "after" they leave college is a topic for another day.
