OUTSIDE THE LINES: ESPN LOOKS AT MONEY & COLLEGE BASKETBALL
Published March 14, 1995
ESPN's "Outside the Lines" last night profiled different aspects of college basketball. Among those topics discussed: leaving school early for the NBA, the state of coaching, and the question of whether or not players deserve money from profits that they help generate. In this last piece, ESPN's Greg Garber reported a recent ESPN/Chilton Sports Poll asking the question: Do you think college basketball players should be paid?: 30.6% said "Yes" and 65.6% said "No." But on the question -- If a player's jersey is sold by the university, do you think the player should receive a percentage of the profits from the sale? 47.4% said "Yes" and 47.5% said "No" (ESPN, 3/13).
