I love the juxtaposition of these two paragraphs:
When asked if he feels guilty about his salary given the financial restraints the NCAA places on players, Bowlsby replied, “I think I’m overpaid and I think there are others in college athletics that are overpaid. But that’s what the market dictates so I’m not going to attempt to turn the market in the other direction.”
… The Big 12 spent $1.4 million on legal services with Polsinelli Shugart in Kansas City, up from about $400,000 a year earlier. Big 12 spokesman Bob Burda said the increase was due to legal defense for NCAA lawsuits in which the Big 12 is a defendant. There have been multiple lawsuits in which current and former players have sought compensation beyond the value of a scholarship.
You know what they say — you gotta spend money to make money.
