The Wall Street has a nice summary article this morning on the Pay to Play lawsuit status and some other interesting information on formulas that might be used to determine how much players should get paid. The article has a Michigan theme and of course was written because of Webber's ending "excommunication."
I am not going to try to summarize more than that and just say that it is an interesting read.
"Figuring out how to share revenue with athletes, of course, is a labor unto itself. In a brief prepared for the O'Bannon plaintiffs, Stanford economist Roger Noll outlined how much a Michigan basketball player would have made in 2008-09 and 2009-10, based on a model that mimics the revenue-distribution rules in professional leagues. The answer: about $250,000—or $30,000 less than Webber took. Under a formula by Robert Brown, an economics professor at California State University San Marcos, Webber was worth four times the booster money he took.''
