Jersey State too broke to pay athletes extra $2000


If you pay close attention to college sports, you probably already know the NCAA is considering allowing schools to pay athletes an extra $2000 "true cost of college" benefit. If you're not familiar with the idea, there are more details here: Link

Today we learned there are 109 Division I universities against the proposal: Link (See Page 5)

A quick glance shows most of the schools against it are the small schools that probably shouldn't even be in Division I anyway. But there are two large universities against the plan. Wake Forest is one. They're afraid the plan will put them out of compliance with Title IX. (See above link Page 13). And our old friends from Jersey are also against it. They say they're also worried about Title IX, but if you look closely (See above link Page 9), there's another reason they're against it: They're too broke to pay it!

The application of the MEA should undergo further analysis also due to the lopsided effect that it will have on certain institutions without the financial resources to provide this MEA which then cascades into a competitive effect in recruiting and retention.

I was ambivalent about this idea, but if it gives SU a recruiting advantage over Jersey State, I'm all for it.
