Future of College Football is Uncertain After Landmark NCAA Case

Lawyer Andrew Coats argued the landmark case that allowed universities to maximize football revenue, now regrets his role in the decision.

The case, NCAA v. Board of Regents of the University of Oklahoma, led to a television-driven money-grab in college football.

This has caused the value of televised college football games to skyrocket in recent decades.

As a result, the Pac-12, a 108-year-old conference, is on the brink of extinction.

Student-athletes are also feeling the effects of the decision, as they are now regularly traveling thousands of miles for routine games.

Coats says he believes the case has "screwed up college football across the board."

He hopes that the NCAA will revisit the decision and find a way to balance the interests of schools, conferences, and student-athletes.

The future of college football is uncertain, but it is clear that the landscape of the sport has been forever changed by the NCAA v. Board of Regents of the University of Oklahoma case.
