NCAA OKs Pay-for-Play Rule for Student Athletes

18

The NCAA board approved a measure allowing conferences to provide up to $2,000 in spending money, or what the NCAA calls the full cost-of-attendance, while insisting it is not pay-for-play. Schools in the six BCS-affiliated conferences are expected to move quickly and provide the additional funding, but because of Title IX rules it may prove too costly for most non-BCS schools.
