In recent months, a parade of NCAA executives, conference commissioners and famous football coaches have traveled to Washington to lobby Congress in search of new federal laws and regulations to oversee college athletics.
Their main concern is how the use of name, image and likeness (NIL) money can influence the recruitment and retention of athletes. They claim they need “guardrails.” They need “guidance.” They need a universal standard that they can enforce.
During the same period, the NCAAs current system of “justice” deliberated a wide-ranging case (the final document was 118 pages long) of old school cheating allegations — namely paying athletes under the table — involving LSU football and basketball.
It released its findings last week and mostly let the Tigers skate.
