I. INTRODUCTION
Imagine a large group of employees in a company working long
hours, some of them far from home, going to school full-time, and
helping bring in millions of dollars to their employer. Does this sound
like a sweat shop making Reeboks or Kathy Lee Gifford clothing?
Actually, this describes the typical athlete in a revenue producing
sport at a National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) member
institution.
Approximately one year ago this author wrote an article advocat-
ing a change in the Constitution and Bylaws of the NCAA to provide
for the payment of stipends to some athletes at some of its member
* Dean and Professor of Law, Drake University Law School. The general concept
and several portions of this article were originally published in C. Peter Goplerud, Stipends
for Collegiate Athletes: A Philosophical Spin on a Controversial Proposal, 5 KAN. J.L. &
PUB. POL'Y 125 (1996). The author gratefully acknowledges the permission granted by the
Kansas Journal of Law & Public Policy to use significant portions of the earlier article in
this article.
