The threats from the NCAA are not going to happen (e.g. banning CA schools from championships), but the NCAA is poorly fighting the inevitable change to the status quo. The only way the NCAA is going to get out of one day paying the football players is if the marketplace develops a minor league alternative, as in baseball. Right now, college is the best/only football minor league. Because the NFL is a federally-licensed cartel, it has little incentive to take the huge financial cost and associated liabilities to do so. NBA is getting smart though, developing its own D (G?) League. I think Vince McMahon is hoping to build the XFL into some "minor league" that he can sell the NFL Owners. This may become the major college "scandal" (loosely termed) of the coming decade, I think.
