NIL, NCAA unionization, & the labor of college sports…oh my!
Grab your backpack and your business suit, because today’s episode of The GIST of It is all about the business of college sports. Co-hosts Ellen Hyslop and Steph Rotz start with a quick explainer of pro sports’ labor practices before going back to school to dig through the history and current landscape of labor in NCAA sports.
Then after the break, El and Steph parse through name, image, and likeness (NIL) deals and how they’re influencing college athletes’ decisions to go pro, all before chatting through what’s next in the wild, wild West of today’s NCAA. Sharpen those pencils.
