MORE INFORMATION ON THE DECISION BY THE NLRB BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS:

CHICAGO (AP) - Around the country Thursday, college coaches and administrators pondered the potential ramifications of the decision by the National Labor Relations Board to allow the Northwestern football team to unionize.
    
The ruling stated NCAA student-athletes are actually university employees in everything but name.
    
Therefore, they should be able to bargain collectively for their fair share of an industry worth billions.
    
That set off speculation over what might happen if the ruling holds up on appeal.
    
Former Georgia football coach and athletic director Vince Dooley is among those flummoxed by how this might affect college sports.
    
Dooley says "the issues would be unlimited. What might happen from school to school, from day to day, from year to year, I don't know. I'm just glad I've served my time."
