PAC 12

The ongoing debate of whether college athletes receive proper compensation for what they provide to their university seems to never go away, and Pac-12 commissioner Larry Scott deposited his two cents on Thursday. The ninth-year commissioner said at Pac-12 basketball media day that, in light of the massive college basketball scandal that has resulted in the arrest of several assistant coaches and Louisville’s Rick Pitino losing his job, he is firmly entrenched as a proponent of “amateurism.” It should be noted that the Pac-12’s total revenue jumped from $439 million to $488 million during fiscal year 2016, and the average distribution to each school was $28.7 million, according to the San Jose Mercury News. This is nothing new for Scott, though. Just last month, he wrote an op-ed for explicitly stating that he’s against players receiving anything more than the value of a scholarship, ancillary benefits associated with that scholarship and the full cost of attendance stipend. –  Barrett Sallee, cbssports.comRead More
