FSU basketball Coach Leonard Hamilton surfaced this week to tell ESPN.com's Andy Katz: "I've always thought it's virtually impossible to have a pay-for-play system that would not include every sport. How can you justify not including track or tennis or golf? How could you consider a fair and equitable system, and not include every sport? Everyone always only mentions basketball and football. But that would almost be unconstitutional."
"The people driving this conversation as I see it are not people on the ground," Hamilton told the worldwide sports leader. "They're not intimately involved in the conversation."
And how about women's sports? Coach Ham made the point that paying men but not female athletes, whether a Title IX violation or not, would be a good bet to be challenged in court.
