Student Athletes to get Paid?

This past week may have finally marked the end of college athletes as amateurs, say experts.

It was on Friday that a district court judge in California ruled in favor of former UCLA basketball star Ed O'Bannon, who sued the NCAA over compensation for the use of university player names and likenesses.

And just the day before, the NCAA—college sports' governing body—announced it would allow more freedom to schools and athletes on how they run their sports programs. That's likely to result in player stipends and increased financial aid.
