    Colleges Paying Out Millions More to Players in Response to NCAA Rule Change

    Colleges Paying Out Millions More to Players in Response to NCAA Rule Change




    The biggest sports programs in the country will be paying their players millions of dollars more this year in response to a rule change allowing athletic scholarships at major-conference colleges to cover the full cost of attendance. As part of an analysis of 92 Division I colleges, USA Today reports that Auburn University will increase its spending, in the aggregate, the most by $2.1 million total.


    A Chronicle analysis of the 65 wealthiest NCAA institutions showed in April that at least 15 programs would increase the value of athletic scholarships by more than $4,000 per scholarship.


    The NCAA made the rule change from having scholarships cover only tuition, fees, room and board, and textbooks in response to lobbying for more benefits to players.

    Old news that we've been discussing for months. C-USA members will participate. Not all of our G5 "peers" will be able to.
