The NCAA announced this week that they begin reviewing NIL impact on college athletes and potential recruiting rules violations. Per ESPN:
quote:

The Division I Board of Directors met virtually Friday and agreed to task the Division I Council with a review of how NIL policies, or lack thereof, have affected athletes' school choice, transfer opportunities, academics and their mental health.

"We want to preserve the positive aspects of the new policy while reviewing whether anything can be done to mitigate the negative ones," said board chair and University of Georgia president Jere Morehead.

In a news release, the board cited concerns about potential violation of NCAA recruiting rules, the representation for athletes as they broker these deals, booster involvement, as well schools being involved in potentially arranging deals for incoming players.

At this point the NCAA is just a group of guys trying to feel important. The Supreme Court will decide in the end

They can still go after a school that did not follow the rules. The SCOTUS doesn't seem to give much of a crap whether the NCAA punishes schools. As long as a player isn't punished, the SCOTUS likely won't care.

With the Supreme Court's decision stating student-athletes have the right to receive compensation any effort to control when and how will be met with a lawsuit. The question isn't what the NCAA decides but what will the Supreme Court allow to stand as a limitation to their right of compensation.

That's ridiculous and totally wrong. NIL is for athletes to market their name and image with legitimate businesses. It's still against ncaa rules for boosters to provide pay for play. If "any effort to control when and how will be met with a lawsuit" were true then the NFL couldn't have a salary cap.

BLG you need to learn the difference between Federal Law and a rule by anybody else. The Supreme court ruled they were entitled to receive compensation. The decision didn't suggest it only applied to NIL. Because of that a school or booster will challenge any attempt to punish the school and force the Supreme court to be more definative on their right to recieve compsnesation.
