The NCAA’s Latest Filing In Alston Continues Its Nonsensical Campaign

Mark Emmert's delusion

The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals’ call for both sides in Alston v. NCAA to submit briefs on how California’s pending college athletes publicity rights law affects the case has been fulfilled. There are no surprises, especially if you’re familiar with the NCAA’s arguments for why the federal government should continue to ignore its illegal cartel.

New Jersey’s SB 971 is the Compromise of 1850 Reincarnated

NJ NIL

New Jersey SB 971, a bill that advanced out of the N.J. Senate’s Higher Education Committee on Thursday, is a perfect representation of why these measures on a state level will fail to meet their stated goals. No matter how altruistic and heroic the intents of those who sponsor and support the bills in the disparate states considering similar motions are, the measures will ultimately prove as ineffective as the Compromise of 1850 in United States history.

What H.R. 5528 Actually Would – And Wouldn’t – Do If It Becomes Law

ncaa

Unfortunately, there has been some bad reporting on a recently introduced bill in the US House of Representatives, H.R. 5528. Contrary to the insinuations of poorly written headlines, the bill would not place a cap on compensation for coaches at NCAA-member universities or establish a limited exemption to federal antitrust laws for the NCAA. Framing the bill as such is not only false but diminishes the real power that the bill would grant. It’s even more potent than the bad reporting suggests.

Nebraska Senator Megan Hunt Calls Upon Experience In Fighting For College Athletes’ Rights

Senator Megan Hunt

Megan Hunt is a first in several ways. She is not only the first woman to represent her district in Nebraska’s unicameral legislature but the first member of the Nebraska Senate from any district who is also openly bisexual. The 33-year-old Democrat is also about to become the first Nebraska Senator to propose a bill that would allow college athletes in the state to profit off their names, images and likenesses without it affecting their eligibility to participate in NCAA athletics.

This we know. Trevor Lawrence is NFL-ready.

Trevor Lawrence NFL Road Closed

I knew it even before last night’s game. I have followed Lawrence for the last two years and seen his greatness. But everyone else should have seen it last night. Great leaders impose their will on the outcome of big games. I was rooting for the Buckeyes 100% but was worried throughout because I know Lawrence just doesn’t lose and his teammates know that playing behind him means you don’t lose so they flat-out play to win…So why can’t Lawrence, even after this season’s performance, and last night’s heroics, declare himself eligible for the upcoming NFL draft? Collusion. Antitrust violations. Greed. An archaic rule.
