    Am I wrong, but if any players join a union, that is tantamount to being employees of the college and therefore professionals? If they are deemed professionals they are disqualified from playing under the NCAA. Just how dumb is that?

    So here is what should happen next:

    The student athletes will float a petition for employee representation (all student athletes or a sub-group remains to be seen???)
    If a certain percentage of the "Bargaining Unit" (% determined by Illinois State LAw usually around 60%) signs the petition, the state "education labor Relations Board will verify and then call for an election. The rules of the election are clearly defined and along with the Steelworkers Union must appear a slot to vote "No Representation." In that election supervised by the EELRB if the steel workers get sa simple majority of the votes, they will be declared the "Exclusive Representative" with the power to collectively bargain.

    What will happen next is the NCAA will file an appeal with the National Labor Relations Board and also numerous slap suits to delay the collective bargaining rights of the newly identified college employees.
