This Article arose out of my curiosity about the precise assignment of legal rights6 among colleges and students in the production, sale, and delivery of intercollegiate athletics. What rights might student athletes possess that give rise to legal accountability? Although a system that permits universities, coaches, concessionaires, television networks, and advertisers to reap the wealth sown by student athletes while precluding the latter from contemporaneous enjoyment of pecuniary profit seems patently unfair, my review of the cases uncovered a legal order that does not assign legal rights to student athletes consistent with my view.
