Emmert says NCAA will appeal O'Bannon ruling
Mark Emmert said Sunday that college sports' largest governing body will appeal Friday's federal court decision that gives athletes a right to some of the millions of dollars they help generate.
U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken ruled Friday the NCAA must allow football players in FBS schools and Division I men's basketball players at least $5,000 a year for rights to their names, images and likenesses, money that would be put in a trust fund and given to them when they leave school
In his first public comments since the ruling, Emmert said on ABC's "This Week With George Stephanopoulos" that the NCAA would appeal "at least in part."
Many legal experts expected the NCAA to appeal and say the case could wind up at the U.S. Supreme Court.
