Funny, no NCAA administrators are calling for a “national standard” or government regulation of conference realignment. They just want to regulate the athletes’ money. How transparent can you be?!
Sources: The ACC and other leagues have made inquiries — through back channels — to Oklahoma and Texas. The schools are still expected to start the process of joining the SEC next week. The Texas and OU backchannel communication to the SEC has been going on for more than a year.
Funny, no federal legislation was necessary for coach salaries, media rights deals, facilities spending, apparel deals, commissioner pay, or any other aspect of the industry. Yet, “fair competition” only applies to athletes. What nonsense.
Big Ten commissioner Kevin Warren says NIL "needs federal legislation."
So much for “the players aren’t worth much” argument. And, by the way, the school’s brand is a major factor in how much coaches make, too.
Here’s an idea…each conference can govern itself. It’s not difficult. Funny, each conference can cut its own media rights deals and networks. It can fashion its own rules. It’s simple: the only nationwide standard should be “full-time student.” https://t.co/fUmSEIIgbn
Let this sink in…$68 Million of the players’ money spent in legal fees fighting to continue violating federal antitrust law. And, the two architects of that losing strategy, Emmert and Remy, took home almost $5 Million. Remember, there’s not enough money. https://t.co/cwjQWEgr3I
Remember, there’s just not enough money…
So, Mark Emmert wants to decentralize the NCAA and have sport specific governance? Emmert dragged his feet (and the NCAA) and spent tens of millions in legal fees and lobbying fighting what he claims to be advocating now. The "right time" was in 2010. https://t.co/0iQHsPeLAZ
So, it’s the “right time” to decentralize and give athletes the same rights as every other student? Funny how getting your tail kicked in the Supreme Court signals the “right time,” after years and millions fighting it in court. That’s leadership? https://t.co/ZSJBkZ07s4
Some see the NCAA imploding, mostly due to bad decisions and poor leadership. The NCAA Rule Book is being published now, and obsolete. But, the games will be played and the revenue collected on time, without issue. https://t.co/taxdZI9UHr
