Some professors seeking reform in college sports want to explore using an antitrust exemption, which would allow the NCAA to better regulate spending on coaches' salaries and other costs. The group is called the Coalition on Intercollegiate Athletics and it released five policy recommendations.

The antitrust issue would mean the biggest change but it requires approval from Congress.
