NCAA won't budge on paying college athletes
MILWAUKEE - The structure of the NCAA could look very different by this time next year as members try to resolve the growing disparity between big-money schools and smaller institutions.
What won't change, however, is the amateur status of the players who make college athletics a billion-dollar business.
NCAA President Mark Emmert said Monday that "very few members and, virtually no university president," think it's a good idea to turn students into paid employees. But the amount of money that has flooded college sports in recent years has created tensions among members, and Emmert hopes they can be resolved by next summer.
Emmert was the guest speaker at a forum at Marquette University.
