NCAA approves an eligibility waiver.
Things never move quickly in the NCAA world. With everyone eagerly awaiting what will be decided about blanket transfer rules, the D1 council ruled on eligibility pertaining to canceled or suspended spring seasons. It’s a narrow scope but an important one. If such a case occurs, a player is free to transfer to another school without losing a year of eligibility. It’s something.
NCAA hires a firm to look into gender inequality.
Maybe it will yield results or maybe it will amount to nothing. Maybe it’s a legitimate attempt to learn and grow and maybe it’s a half-hearted attempt in order to save face. Either way, an independent law firm will be looking into a gender-equity review of its championships across all three divisions and for all sports. If nothing else, it’s worth following during the off-season.
Rams keep winning.
