The continual infusion of money and new financial distribution models are creating unique and challenging issues for college sports in the United States. With some college football coaches making more money than the college president, and some student-athletes making over a million dollars in annual “NIL” revenue, should college athletes still be considered amateurs, professionals, and/or employees? And, what about the gender equity federal law that is Title IX? The answers to these and many more questions will be explored during the panel discussion.
