This article is absolutely soul crushing. The NCAA says it’s about athlete welfare. This story, and so many others like it, show that to be a lie. Read this...it’s important. All of this for a phone jack...really? https://t.co/rxJjwT6gaI
This is really disconcerting. Emmert is waiting for Congress to act on NIL? That’s the NCAA’s job, and “hope” is not policy. No athlete has ever been allowed to meet with the Board of Governors? Well, isn’t is past time to remedy that? https://t.co/oplwnRoDfG
Bob Fouracre was one of the nicest men you'll ever meet. I went up to call a URI-Holy Cross football game in Worcester when I was a student and he was so accommodating. Gave me a few tidbits that I used in my broadcast.
As states continue to pass (bipartisan) NIL legislation, the NCAA continues to twiddle its thumbs. The NCAA could have passed sensible NIL rules, but has chosen not to. Why are states passing these laws? Competition. Athletes are valuable assets, and these laws are proof of that.
And...we shall see that an athlete can make money AND the Earth will remain firmly on its axis...
Here’s a picture of mom and dad together at Goddard Park in Rhode Island back in 2016. My iPhone notified me of this memory just after she passed today. Kind of interesting how that happened.
