Former Boyle County star and former Mr. Football Lamar Dawson is suing the NCAA and the PAC-12 claiming he and other players should have been paid for their time on the University of Southern California football team.

Dawson claims in the suit he wasn’t given pay for all of the hours he put into the team, including overtime pay. A PAC-12 representative responded saying that student-athletes aren’t employees, making Dawson’s argument irrelevant.

Matt & Chip Cosby discussed whether the lawsuit will lead to college athletes being paid for their time.
