Initial NCAA statement regarding O’Bannon decision

“We have not completely reviewed the court’s 73-page decision, but we agree with the court that the injunction ‘allowing students to be paid cash compensation of up to $5,000 per year was erroneous.’ Since Aug. 1, the NCAA has allowed member schools to provide up to full cost of attendance; however, we disagree that it should be mandated by the courts.”

– NCAA President Mark Emmert
