If you are unable to open the link, here are the highlights:
  • Scholarship limits would be eliminated and replaced with a lower roster cap
  • Football probably stays at 85 and the additional scholarships could go to other sports of the schools choosing. This would be very good for Tulane baseball.
  • Eliminates NIL abuse by some schools who are seeing that walk-ons receive an NIL amount to cover tuition.
  • Big schools will fight this. If Alabama’s football roster is capped at 85, there will be a lot of players available for smaller schools.
It’s a very fluid situation and anything can happen. Stay tuned as lawyers, the NCAA, and universities duke it out.

Thanks for the summary. I was encouraged until the last sentence. Those three groups don't install confidence of a great win-for-everybody solution.

Be a Hero Today.... Adopt a Shelter Pet... The Beatles once sang "Can't Buy Me Love"... I disagree, unconditional Love can be bought, for the nominal adoption fee at your local Pet Shelter !
