SUMMARY: The NCAA has proposed a $2.7 billion settlement in a federal case that could allow universities to directly pay student athletes, pending a judge’s approval. This settlement would enable power conferences like the SEC and Big 12 to attract top talent, but it may also widen the talent gap between large and small schools. Schools like Texas and OU could owe $300 million over 10 years, while smaller schools would face around $600,000 to $700,000 annually. Athletic directors in smaller conferences are concerned about the financial burden. The deal includes a potential $20 million fund for player payments, raising concerns about compliance and financial feasibility.

Jared Mosley, the Director of Athletics at UNT said the smaller conferences weren’t included in the negotiated settlement and will lead to a bigger gap between large schools and smaller ones.
