So basically, because schools can't follow the rules, they change the rules to something that's "easier" to follow. (yeah right) I freaking HATE the NCAA. They don't care about any school outside of the top select few.



For decades, outsiders have debated whether college scholarships should include more than just the cost of tuition, room and board, books and fees. Now they can.

The board approved a measure allowing conferences to vote on providing up to $2,000 in spending money, or what the NCAA calls the full cost-of-attendance. Emmert insists it is not pay-for-play, merely the reintroduction of a stipend that existed for college athletes until 1972. He also compared it to the stipends received by other students who receive non-athletic scholarships.



Some thought the total amount should have been higher. At the Big Ten's basketball media day in Chicago, commissioner Jim Delany said studies have shown the average athlete pays roughly $3,000 to $4,000 out of his or her own pocket in college costs.

So the regular student pays for school. Pays for room and board. Pays for their books. And pays fees. Athletes don't pay any of it, and then they get another $2,000 to top it off?

Do they honestly think that colleges are going to magically stop at the $2,000? They couldn't handle a zero rule, so obviously they show the ability to policing themselves now.

**** them.

How much money does the regular student make for the university?

You do realize that very few schools actually make money off of athletics, right? BSU loses a million dollars every year from athletics.

That's why I said they only care about a select few, and screw over the other 90% of the schools that are mid-majors.

EDIT:

The Cardinals have made $3.225 million from those five losses at BCS programs since 2005; that's $645,000 per loss.

The money doesn't go to just the football program. It goes throughout an athletic department that has run a deficit of $2.75 million during that stretch.

Sorry, not a million or millions. They lose about $500,000 per year on athletics. BSU has about 500 athletes, give or take, so an extra $2,000 per athlete would mean an additional $100,000 in expenses.

The NCAA's latest report on revenues and expenses, released Tuesday, showed fewer than 25 percent of all Football Bowl Subdivision schools made money in 2007-08, while the remaining 302 schools competing in Division I struggled to break even.

This just gives the schools with more money another advantage.

I'm not sure if there have been studies, but I'm sure that students that help professors with research projects that generate money and prestige for the university would be as valuable as the athletes are.

Oh, the regular student makes the university most of its money since they are actually paying the school to attend. The ahtletes in most schools, as noted abvove, are a drain on the schools resources.

Just drop the amateurism charade already and let the kids make money on their likeness. The schools don't need to pay them.

You realize it is entirely optional and up to the school to do this, don't you? They don't have to extend the extra 2000 if they don't want to do so. Plus 500 x 2000 = 1 million

Sure, it's "optional." But if you don't opt to pay them, then they find another school that will. Recruiting is highly competitive now, and that's an understatement of the century, you really think players won't expect this from their schools? Yeah right.

An extra $2000 is gonna be a pay cut from most BCS conference schools....

exactly

I made the University of Connecticut about 10 thousand dollars through four years

The Uconn Men's basketball team makes the University of Connecticut about 10 Million per year.

The educational system shouldn't be about money, but it is.
