NCAA Says Northwestern Union Case Will Wind Up in Supreme Court

The National Labor Relations Board ruling allowing Northwestern University’s football team to become the first college sports union will eventually be decided by the U.S. Supreme Court, NCAA President Mark Emmert said.

“This will go to the Supreme Court, it’s such a fundamental change,” Emmert said in an interview on CBS’s “Face the Nation” today. Emmert said the perception that the television money from college football and basketball “goes to a bank” is wrong. The money goes to pay for other college sports, he said.
