Should Athletes Be Paid?: ESPN's Writer's Bloc revives the debate we seem to see during every March Madness: should college athletes be paid? There are no new arguments but the dialogue is an interesting one.

As a normative issue, I have not decided where I stand on this issue. Legally, though, I believe that Title IX would prevent implementation of such a policy, as athletic budgets cannot stomach paying both male and female athletes. I explore this in my recently-published article, which I am still trying to get on the web.
