Big Ten head paints dire picture of paying players

By Associated Press 12:30 PM June 20, 2014
OAKLAND, Calif. –

The head of the Big Ten is painting a dire picture of what college sports would look like if players were allowed to be paid. He says his conference likely would cease to exist and the Rose Bowl probably would not be played.

Jim Delany says the idea of paying players goes against the entire college experience and he couldn’t see league members agreeing to it. He adds that if some did they likely would be kicked out of the conference because such a move would create an imbalance among schools that could not be resolved.

Delany followed NCAA President Mark Emmert to the witness stand Friday in a landmark antitrust suit brought by former UCLA basketball star Ed O’Bannon and others.
