Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops gave a candid interview this week with Matt Hayes of SportingNews.com that touched off a national debate of compensation for college football players. NCAA expert John Infante of athleticscholarships.net's Bylaw Blog joins CBR's Allen Kenney for a podcast to discuss the compensation issue from all sides.
John and Allen touch on:
*The status of current stipend proposals within the NCAA legislative process.
*The validity of Stoops' arguments about the value of a scholarship.
*Why Stoops' interview did more bad than good for the NCAA's image.
*A primer on the Ed O'Bannon case.
*The potential for unionization among college athletes.
