CBS Sports: NCAA granting extra eligibility no 'slam dunk'

Well that would be ashamed if they don't. I imagine a lot of it will be self resolved anyway and it won't be as many as some think. Then again, I'm not sure why it'd be costing NCAA that much... Isn't the schools paying the money. I would think seniors will take their degree and leave.

If one class of athletes gets an extra year to play, another class loses a year.

In baseball each school only gets 11.x schollies at one time and a class stays another year, then the high school seniors do not get any scholarship help at all. If NCAA lets the number of schollies go up for one year, probably only the better funded schools can afford the extra athletes. AND if you have more athletes, the more experienced players are likely to fill the spots and the new kids lose an opportunity to fill in behind the older guys who in normal circumstances would have moved on.

The same sort of logic exists in every sport that plays in the spring. If Covid-19 comes back in the fall, then the one more year logic difficulties impact football and basketball.

So someone wins and someone loses which ever way you go.

Well said. It was along the lines of what I was going to post. It would hurt the incoming class for sure

well from what I first was told by major outlets like ESPN was that NCAA said that they had an Insurance policy for this sort of thing. That the NCAA had reserved funds to pay athletes for this type of situation. I guess that was a lie though.

Whatever happened to their slogan that said most will go pro in something other than sports. I always knew it was Bull crap. Now I guess just making that official. Pay the kids another year you have the money if anything many at the top of the NCAA like the president could cut their salaries to finish out their career as an amateur athlete.


Why don't the schools remind the NCAA who

It works for? Sometimes, you don't ask...you tell. The NCAA isn't making the money...the members are. And in extraordinary times...similar adjustments are made.
