On Dec. 17, we will be discussing this topic with (additional speakers will be added): • Mark Emmert, NCAA president (one-on-one conversation) • Mark Walker, North Carolina congressman • Ramogi Huma, National College Players Association executive director • Donna Lopiano, former University of Texas women’s athletic director/president-elect of The Drake Group • Michael McCann, University of New Hampshire sports law professor, Sports Illustrated legal analyst • Ben Strauss, Washington Post sports reporter/co-author of Indentured: The Inside Story of the Rebellion Against the NCAA The discussions will occur from 12:30-2:30 pm ET.
