The NCAA, or National Collegiate Athletic Association, is a powerful organization that governs college sports in the United States. It has a long history of making decisions that have impacted the lives of student-athletes, both positively and negatively. In recent years, the NCAA has come under fire for its handling of various issues, including student-athlete compensation, health and safety, and academic integrity.

I am a former student-athlete who has firsthand experience with the NCAA's inner workings. I have seen the good and the bad, and I believe that the organization needs to change. In this article, I will share my story of how I took on the NCAA and fought for justice for student-athletes.

I grew up playing basketball and dreamed of one day playing in the NBA. I was fortunate enough to receive a scholarship to play basketball at a major Division I university. I was excited to start my college career and make the most of my opportunity.

However, my experience as a student-athlete was not what I expected. I was treated like a commodity, not a student. I was constantly pressured to perform on the court, even when I was injured. I was also subjected to verbal and emotional abuse from my coaches.

I eventually reached a breaking point and decided to speak out about my experience. I wrote an article for a national magazine, detailing the abuses I had endured. The article sparked a national conversation about the NCAA's treatment of student-athletes.

The NCAA was not happy with my article. They threatened to sue me and tried to intimidate me into silence. But I refused to be bullied. I stood up to the NCAA and fought for what I believed in.

After a long and difficult battle, I prevailed. The NCAA agreed to change some of its policies and practices. I was proud of what I had accomplished, but I knew that there was still much more work to be done.

The NCAA is a powerful organization, but it is also flawed. The organization has a long history of making decisions that have benefited its member schools and administrators, at the expense of student-athletes.

Here are some of the key problems with the NCAA:

  • Student-athletes are not paid. College athletes generate billions of dollars in revenue for the NCAA and its member schools. However, student-athletes themselves are not allowed to share in this wealth. They are only given scholarships that cover the cost of their tuition, fees, and room and board.
  • Student-athletes are not treated like students. College athletes are often treated like professional athletes, even though they are still students. They are expected to train and compete year-round, and they have little time for academics. Many student-athletes struggle to keep up with their studies, and some even drop out of school altogether.
  • Student-athletes are not protected from abuse. College athletes are often subjected to verbal and emotional abuse from their coaches. In some cases, they are even physically abused. The NCAA has a long history of ignoring or downplaying reports of abuse.

The NCAA needs to change. The organization needs to put the well-being of student-athletes first. Here are some of the changes that I believe need to be made:

  • Pay student-athletes. College athletes should be paid a fair share of the revenue they generate. This would help to ensure that student-athletes are treated like employees, not slaves.
  • Treat student-athletes like students. College athletes should be given the same opportunities as other students to succeed academically. This means providing them with the time and resources they need to study and complete their coursework.
  • Protect student-athletes from abuse. The NCAA needs to create a system to protect student-athletes from abuse. This system should include independent investigators who can investigate allegations of abuse and hold coaches accountable.

The NCAA is a powerful organization, but it is time for change. The organization needs to put the well-being of student-athletes first. I believe that the changes I have proposed would make the NCAA a more just and equitable organization.

I urge all student-athletes, parents, and fans to join me in the fight for change. The NCAA needs to hear our voices and know that we will not tolerate the abuses that have been happening for too long. Together, we can make a difference.
