WASHINGTON — A Democratic congressman will hold a round-table discussion Nov. 1 on the impact of "back-room deals, payoffs and scandals" in college sports.
Illinois Rep. Bobby Rush said Tuesday that the session will be moderated by ESPN's Jeremy Schaap. Among the participants: NBA players Shane Battier and Thaddeus Young; Ramogi Huma, president of the National College Players Association; academics; a former sports agent; and a sports economist.
Rush's office says that participants will offer their perspectives on the current state of college sports and recent cases of NCAA violations.
Just with a push at five schools, the National College Players Association got more than 300 major college football and men's basketball players to sign a petition telling the NCAA and college presidents they want a cut of ever-increasing TV sports revenue.
