This week we have some Facts about NCAA student-athletes!
- NCAA By law, sets a 20 hour per week limit on time spent on athletics for Division I athletes; however,in a 2006 University of Nebraska study, done in cooperation with the NCAA, it was reported "coaches do not follow the rules of hours of week for practicing"
- In the same study, 60% of the student-athletes surveyed reported they view themselves "more as athletes than students"
- The study also reports, "many individuals with whom student-athletes come in contact with view them more as athletes than as students"
