Abstract

In 1984, the Supreme Court altered the property rights to college football telecasts by granting individual schools the right to negotiate contracts for telecasts, a privilege previously held by the NCAA. This paper provides an empirical analysis of the impact of that decision on recruiting success in college football. The results suggest that the recruiting success of traditional football powers improved relative to that of nonpowers following the court decision. Such results support the NCAA contention that restrictions on television appearances are needed to achieve recruiting equity.
