NCAA president Mark Emmert pushes $2K payment to players

NCAA student-athletes may receive an additional $2,000 above their athletic scholarships, which covers tuition, fees, room, board and books.
President Mark Emmert, the former Washington president, supports a proposal in which conference can funnel more money to players. The proposal is expected to be finalized this week and will need approval from the NCAA Division I Board of Directors.
If the proposal passes, it would be a landmark shift in college athletics. The current model of athletic scholarships hasn’t changed in the past 40 years.
