jpo2269: Of course, nothing negative could come from the prospect of schools being forced to pay student-athletes.  Surely schools wouldn't reduce the number of scholarships offered, or eliminate walk-on spots, and there wouldn't be any incentive to reduce the number of sports offered on a varsity level b/c of this lawsuit.  Who are the S-A's most likely to be negatively affected?  Women athletes at most schools, now if you are UConn, Tennessee, Baylor of one of the schools with an elite woman's basketball program, certainly you would keep that program, but if you are Clemson, Georgia Tech, or some school which has no tradition in women's basketball and certainly do not add to the AD revenue, your arse is endangered to say the least.

Why should male athletes be exploited to pay the bills for female athletes?
