Miami Hurricanes NCAA Violations: Disclosure as Remedy?

My colleague James Boyle brought this article to my attention, which details various and multiple NCAA violations by the University of Miami.  Basically one of the boosters provided millions of dollars of illegal benefits to basketball and football players. The question that many have asked is whether this type of activity can be stopped.  Can a player who comes from difficult circumstances really refuse $10,000 from a booster just so he can maintain his NCAA eligibility?

One solution is to allow boosters to buy players but to compel the school to disclose the benefits both to the players and to the boosters.  Luis, since you're a big sports guy, what do you think of disclosure as a remedy?
