Chaos: The State of the NCAA’s Compensation Rules for Student Athletes After Alston SKO Unmuted

    • Business News

In this episode of SKO Unmuted, co-host Adam Back hosts a panel to explore this week’s U.S. Supreme Court decision NCAA v. Alston, which found that limitations to certain education-related compensation for student athletes is in violation of U.S. antitrust law. What does this mean for the future of how college athletes may be paid, or financially benefit from use of their own name, image and likeness?

To discuss, Adam is joined by Dr. Steve Parker — Associate Professor for sports leadership and teacher education, and Associate Dean for diversity, undergraduate advising and student success at the University of Kentucky — as well as SKO Attorney Danielle Day and SKO Managing Director Doug Barr. All three are former University of Kentucky athletes with particular interest and insight into the current state of student athlete compensation and how it may change due to the Alston decision.
