How would you like to be a coach who has unionized players and you no longer can tell them how long to practice, what drills can be conducted, perhaps even be forced to use only players who have a card, limit the number of games played and only schools with unionized players can be scheduled? Sounds far-fetched? It could happen, but not soon.

The National Labor Relations Board ruled that scholarship players can form a union because they are employees of the school. The ruling will be appealed by the NCAA (National Collegiate Athletic Association). Also, college athletic conferences, such as the Big Ten, will weigh in on the matter, perhaps with litigation. So the issue is far from final.
