AbstractThe NCAA is currently involved in at least three separate lawsuits that threaten imminent change to the current model of intercollegiate athletics. Although these suits could change the sports landscape, they are ultimately trying to give student-athletes more rights as individuals and determine if they should be compensated in addition to athletic scholarships. There is much ongoing debate over whether these possible changes will benefit the athletes or hinder them. This thesis explores the viewpoints of these current issues from three types of authorities: university athletic administrators, NCAA representatives, and athletes of past and present. Each section contains the pertinent interviews with each authority for the purpose of unique insight on how the lawsuits will affect policies, Title IX, economics, and student-athletes.
