Athletes seek 'seat at table' in new college sports model

Related Topics: Jim Cavale

UCF quarterback John Rhys Plumlee did not tune in last week to watch lawyers in a California courtroom debate the value of a college athlete's broadcast publicity rights. Plumlee was busy rehabbing his leg injury and helping his team prepare for its Big 12 debut rather than keeping tabs on the latest antitrust case threatening the NCAA's business model.

Plumlee also missed the ninth congressional hearing on name, image and likeness laws last week. He didn't have time to read about the Dartmouth men's basketball team taking steps to form a union, or a Michigan university board member's op-ed in The New York Times echoing football coach Jim Harbaugh's belief that it was time to start sharing revenue with players.
