In September, we reported on the Ninth Circuit’s order deferring the implementation of extensive changes to the NCAA’s policy governing the compensation of student athletes. On September 30, Ninth Circuit ruled that student-athletes can be provided scholarships that cover the full cost of attending college, and struck down a lower court decision that would have permitted student-athletes to be paid for the use of their names, images and likenesses. One day later, the Division I Council and the Student-Athlete Experience Committee decided to take a closer look at the time demands on student-athletes. The Division I board of directors asked both the Division I Council and the Division I Student-Athlete Advisory Committee to provide guidance on how to more accurately measure and limit the time commitments of college athletes, acknowledging that the greatest concern is that athletic commitments can interfere with student-athletes’ ability to pursue certain majors, internships and other opportunities.
