Per Mitch Sherman of ESPN:
Interesting comment during the autonomy discussion on Proposal No. 2016-139 (banning offseason practice off campus) from Nandi Mehta of Northwestern women's soccer: "Why are we here?" Mehta, among 15 student-athlete reps on the autonomy committee, opposes the proposal. She says the point of college athletics is to create opportunity for student-athletes. "I don't think it's right to strip a student-athlete of this opportunity."
I guess this is why we have to think of the kids-- they clearly aren't thinking for themselves (sic).
Apparently, this is the talk of the NCAA Convention right now:
Easily the most hotly contested subject so far at autonomy discussion forum at the NCAA convention. Many good arguments for and against. https://t.co/6TmPFR1pV6— Jeremy Crabtree (@jeremycrabtree) January 20, 2017
