New NCAA Rules in NCAA News Posted October 30, 2019 4 minutes ago, iramurphy said: This may be the impetus to remove intercollegiate and inter scholastic athletics from from educational institutions. Being a college athlete isn’t a “full time job”. At UND/NDSU full scholarships for instate kids are around $21,400 instate and 33,000 out of state. Throw in free travel, hotel and stipend clothing/gear it’s at least $25,000-$35,000 per athlete per year. Many in the media are pushing for the NCAA changes. What will that do to the team culture. The star QB, RB, CB, LB, WR can negotiate for tens of thousands of dollars at schools our size and, in some cases, millions at the big time schools. What about the Off linemen, Def linemen who don’t get recognition but are an important part of the success of the star athlete. What about the back ups or scout team players who make the star athlete better? The NCAA caved to media pressure, political pressure and lobby groups. I don’t think it is in the best interest of colleges and universities nor intercollegiate athletics. How soon before HS athletes demand money? I think the NCAA as an institution stinks. It's a money grab entity and they saw that the states were going to allow this so they jumped in to make sure they looked good AND I bet they will seek some way to get some of the money the players are supposed to get. Student athletes have not been strictly amateur for awhile as I believe the NCAA suffers from lack of enforcement as much as selective enforcement. Look at College BB and the shoe deals scandal. How could the NCAA not know about that, but it took the feds to investigate and go after the bad guys in this deal. But even the feds can't catch all the bad guys.
