Jennifer Lee Hoffman, associate professor of educational foundations, leadership and policy, headlined an episode of the Going For Two podcast. Hoffman spoke with host Bryan Fischer about the ramifications and nuances of the U.S. Supreme Court's recent decision in NCAA v. Alston, which concerns whether the NCAA's restrictions on education-related grant-in-aid compensation are illegal under the Sherman Antitrust Act. The Court's 9-0 decision recognizes that the NCAA's "amatuerism" rules cannot work to benefit everyone except the student-athletes who produce a product and will substantially impact the NCAA's operations going forward, particularly when it comes to compensating college athletes.
