    Good notation from Dr. Ogden about Title 7. I would add if the NCAA’s purpose is to protect the athlete, then why not set up provisions of long term health consequences? Should colleges be responsible for an injury which exacerbates with age? Should high schools? I feel they should be sustainable contributors related to the injury for life since the athlete contributed to the program and finance of the program, especially if the injury occurred while playing. The program continues to prosper off of the athletes while the athletes suffer the program’s protocol for playing. One example is a knee injury which may have surgery; however, the knee is now been compromised to a place of other anomalies such as arthritis, limited range of motion, atrophy, compensation of other gait and running articulates. Who pays for the care of the knee as the person ages? Pay the players and give them “occurred injury insurance” for life.
