"Now that there is an increased focus on player safety with concussion protocols in place for various professional leagues and the NCAA as well as some high school associations, you really can't justify putting some of these Goliaths up against smaller private schools," said Epstein, whose law expertise includes multipliers and similar measures in high school sports. "The fact that Alabama has a success formula on top of a multiplier - it's not legally justifiable. The success formula - in addition to the multiplier - simply does not pass constitutional muster as far as equal protection goes."
