I did a quick google search on Title IX. Any lawyers out there please chime in.

What I found: Title IX does not require equal expenditure of funds on male and female athletes. The only dollar for dollar expenditure requirement is in the athletic financial assistance area, where schools are required to spend dollars proportional to participation rates.

So, it appears that football players & men's basketball players could be paid above and beyond "financial assistance" via revenue sharing, medical insurance coverage after the player leaves the program, and other benefits they obtain in negotiations.
"No figures were available on what percentage of that Big Ten pot the CFBPA would demand. One source speculated that the Big Ten could avoid Title IX laws by distributing the money through the conference office instead of the schools. In that sense the conference office wouldn't be an educational entity receiving federal funds necessarily subject to Title IX."

"...fired at any time." ~ I would think that the players' union would insist you show "just cause" when the case goes to court, otherwise, you'd owe the player some $$$.
Lol, dies the NFL or NBA need to show just cause for getting rid of a player. "Contracts " will be one yr and if you don't produce see ya later.
Pretty simple. You want to profit like the big boys then you play by big boy rules.
Net results will be tons of college kids paying their own way and even more separation for those with the $ to buy players.
You know just like pro sports.

LOL, when the NFL/NBA breaks the contract, they still pay the terms of the contract unless there's an "out." Many players have 1, 2, 3, or 4 year contracts, and you know that.
"...tons of kids..." ~ Stop.
I do know, just like the pro sports

Players may find they're getting a piece of a smaller pie than they expected. Many college football fans are fans because it's not the NFL. I'm one and I'm not alone. They may be killing their golden goose.

I'm on the verge of bowing out and spending my time and money elsewhere. There's opportunity cost to having season tickets...I could take a European vacation for what I spend annually. The travel is starting to look more and more like a better option.

They're big on football over there!

You'll love it in Europe...check out Javentus if you're in Turin, and Real is a must if you're in Madrid.

This is the ultimate game changer. Truly separates the haves and the have nots (B10/SEC vs everyone else). Really a matter of when not if.

Agreed. People were wondering how teams like Iowa will spend all the extra TV money. Well, the football players (and men's basketball players) have some ideas ;)

Talk about a benefits package: free medical care (for how long after they graduate?), revenue sharing, free tuition, free unlimited food, free housing, free personal training, free top notch coaching (NFL opportunities galore), up to $6,000 for good grades, NIL opportunities.... did I miss anything?

And you are right; this is going to be a huge recruiting advantage. Will Iowa beat out the top teams in the B1G and SEC for recruits? Nope. But Iowa will have a much better chance at top recruits when competing against lower tier B1G & SEC schools & schools not in the B1G and SEC.

More evidence that revenue sharing is coming.

Just back off the scholarship money, let them use it on shoes & pizza. It will all even out that way & save some of the amateurism.

The conference can say what it thinks but these are state schools who are entities of the state and the conference needs state permission to do any of this.
