The NCAA is willing to take a crap shoot with tennis with a maybe 5% chance of a payout, because they are making zero dollars from it now
If I read correctly what USTennisfan writes, these changes are not being organized and operated exclusively for educational purposes.
Bingo. but really yes and no.
You need to follow how other major sports are handled.... They claim the are thinking of the kids and the institutions educational goals but dollars drive the bus. They just use education as a framework to continue its legal status. The joke is everyone laughs at it's mission statement when TV waives the dollars around.
As far as a 5% chance of a payout. Given a 3 to 7 year TV contract it's going to be far more than that, which is why this is even being considered.
