Corn Flakes: O'Bannon Trial Continues

David McGee

Of all the things I've seen about the O'Bannon trial, this tweet by Sippin' On Purple's Rodger Sherman made by far the most sense:

Millions upon millions are pouring into collegiate sports at the same time the facilities arms race continues and coaches salaries continue to rise at a rapid rate - is it any wonder there's so much pressure for college athletes to get some compensation?

One could make the argument that if the NCAA loses this lawsuit that there will be a lot of universities with a huge problem of having committed millions to building facilities only to have that money taken away to compensate student athletes.

One of the NCAA's major arguments against paying players is that the schools don't have enough money to do it. However, a number floated out at today's O'Bannon trial by economist Roger Noll tells a different story.

KU students messed with the bull, got the horns, and shame on the bull | The Kansas City Star
Earlier this year, you may have known, KU’s Student Senate voted to remove a student fee that provided about $1.1 million to the athletic department. The chancellor later overruled the decision, but compromised with a plan that will cut the subsidy to the athletic department by $350,000. The athletic department’s response is to cut out 120 of the best student seats in Allen Fieldhouse, replacing them with donor$. Sure looks like revenge, right?
