New Plan for Basketball

Get behind this plan. I look forward to competition opening up new opportunities for talented people out there.

What if I told you there was a way to pay men’s college basketball players a fairer portion of the hundreds of millions of dollars they generate, boost the flagging fortunes of the nation’s historically black colleges and universities (HBCUs), and stick it to the sanctimonious, self-serving quasi-monopolists at the NCAA?

If all of that sounds too good to be true, then you haven’t yet heard from Andy Schwarz. A San Francisco–based antitrust economist, longtime critic of college sports amateurism, and—full disclosure—occasional contributor to VICE Sports, Schwarz has a plan to make it happen. It’s a business plan, in fact, and while it’s still in its early stages, it works, in a nutshell, like this:

What are your thoughts on this plan for any fans? whether you agree with the reasons or causes for the current state of affairs it is hard to deny there is a sort of monopoly on talent. If it is entirely due to quality then it will last through the competition.
