If it means changing the athletic scholarship from tuition, room, and board only to full cost of attendance, I can't think of many downsides. The additional money is meant to cover things like transportation, clothing, personal hygiene, and entertainment. I think a $2,500-3,500 annual stipend paid out monthly or biweekly probably would cover those expenses. I think any more than that would begin to compromise amateur status.
