INTELLIGENCE SQUARED
US DEBATES:
PAY COLLEGE ATHLETES

Tuesday, October 24, 2017  |  7:00pm

SHARE THIS:

College sports is a big-money business, with football and basketball programs generating millions of dollars in revenue every year. While coaches and athletic directors in Division I programs routinely score seven-figure contracts, student-athletes are currently prohibited from sharing in the profits. Is it time to rewrite the rules in college sports and allow athletes their fair share of the profits? Or would providing monetary incentives -- above and beyond existing scholarships and career supports -- spoil the sport?

For the Motion:
Joe Nocera, Columnist, Bloomberg View & Co-Author, "Indentured: The Inside Story of the Rebellion Against the NCAA"
Andy Schwarz, Economist & Partner, OSKR

Against the Motion
Christine Brennan, Sports Columnist, USA Today
Len Elmore, Attorney & Former All-American Basketball Player
