This article explores college athletics in the context of lawsuits involving sex, race and disability, as well as antitrust challenges to the National Collegiate Athletic Association's rules. Courts have struggled in their application of relevant statutory laws to college athletic programs which are a hybrid with qualities of academic as well as private sector organizations. After surveying the legal landscape of legal challenges, the author concludes that when schools surrender and delegate control of their athletic programs to the NCAA, the NCAA's activities are more commercial in nature, thus triggering compliance with federal regulation.
