Mike and Big 12 Commissioner Bob Bowlsby discuss the possible increase in competition amongst universities to provide better compensation for their athletes should a vote allowing for comprehensive financial support be passed by the NCAA. Mike asks: “What is the level of danger inherent in putting these packages together? Would it be possible at some point that a kid – a spectacular athlete – says: ‘I can get a better package by going to [one university] than [another?] I can get more money.’” Mr. Bowlsby responds here.
