meaning many schools—especially those in the Power Five conferences—likely would offer more and more lucrative scholarships than currently allowed, if only the rules were different. The fact that every single Division I team currently offers right up to the 85 scholarship limit suggests that the money exists to offer more. Warrant: Lifting the scholarship limit and paying players is comparatively less exploitative. Trahan, Kevin. “Why a Free Market for NCAA Athletes Won’t Mean Fewer Scholarships.” Vice Sports. Vice, 04 May 2015. Web. 07 Nov. 2017. <- athletes-wont-mean-fewer-scholarships>.

Con Arguments with Pro Responses December 2017 Champion Briefs 200 CON: Paying players could result in discrimination under Title IX Argument: Title IX necessitates equal opportunities for male and female sports, but fails to require equal payments to athletes in a system of pay-for-play. Spending differences based on gender may constitute discrimination. Warrant: Huge pay differentials between profitable men’s and women’s sports may be discriminatory.

Opposing Viewpoints in Context , ec7930ac. Accessed 8 Nov. 2017. Originally published in The Journal of the Business Law Society , 23 Mar. 2005. Mark Murphy, Director of Athletics at Northwestern University, who participated in an ESPN [sports television network] debate on the topic of paying student-athletes, argues that these athletes currently receive scholarships, whose value, in some instances, totals close to $200,000 over four years.

Paying athletes anything beyond a scholarship, argues Murphy,

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
