I cannot express how happy I am that this is step one in the final disintegration of the NCAA.

Meanwhile, lawyers on both coasts have recently filed straightforward antitrust class-action suits against the N.C.A.A., arguing that universities and the N.C.A.A. simply lack the legal right to cap players’ compensation. When I asked Jeffrey Kessler, a New York lawyer who has spent years representing professional athletes, why he had taken on this case, he replied, “Our sense is that the world has changed so radically in college sports that even the most casual observers recognize that this is not amateurism. This is a gigantic business.”

Maybe that is what the Ohr decision really represents: a government acknowledgment that college sports is not what it once was, and that no amount of N.C.A.A. propaganda can hide the money-soaked reality anymore. If judges come to these upcoming cases with the same lack of blinders that Ohr showed last week — if they view the cases strictly through the prism of the law rather than the gauzy sheen of amateurism — well, then, a union will be the least of the N.C.A.A.’s worries.

In other news, sources say FSU waited until after the conclusion of the football season to hold Title IX investigation of Winston incident.

Aren't these athletes already being paid thousands of dollars in scholarships?

Jameis Winston arrested and issued a citation for stealing crab legs from a Publix. His version of bringing attention to the "hungry NCAA athlete that needs money and extra food" issue, or just a friggin moron. You decide.

He's obviously just a dumbass who think he can do whatever the hell he wants.

Publix was able to do what 2 SEC defenses couldn't do last year.
