The implications of an upheld Northwestern decision would be enormous for private-sector New England higher educational institutions. The region is home to both a large number of Division One athletic teams in a variety of sports and aggressive union organizing. Just days ago, part-time professors at Northeastern University voted to form a union. Local college administrators should join the chorus of those who weigh in on this important issue. College athletics could probably use some reforms. Unionizing student athletes is not one of them.

This attorney is not in favor of student athlete organizing. Who knows where this will go? It's just one of several trends that may end college football as we know it some time in the next decade.
