Student Athlete Understanding of the NCAA Consent Form

In a recently completed study, researchers have found that many student athletes do not understand what rights they sign away if they agree to the NCAA's consent form. In addition, if their images appear on commercial goods, many also think they are endorsing those items.  Anastasios Kaburakis of Saint Louis University, David Pierce of Ball State University, Beth A. Cianfrone of Georgia State University, and Amanda L. Paule, of Bowling Green State University, hope to publish their findings soon. More here from the Chronicle of Higher Education (subscription may be required).
