The Associated Press reports that the NCAA is one step closer to allowing players to earn money from endorsements, social media content and personal appearances, among other means.

From the AP: “[Its] Board of Governors supports a plan that gives athletes the ability to cash in on their names, images and likenesses as never before and without involvement from the association, schools or conferences. Ohio State President and board chairman Michael Drake called it an ‘unprecedented’ move by the NCAA. The next step is for membership to draft legislation by Oct. 30. A formal vote will be taken by schools at the next convention in January and new rules will go into effect no later than the 2021-22 academic year. ... The nation’s largest governing body for college sports said it will still seek a federal law to keep individual states from passing their owns laws on compensation for college athletes.”

  • The Wyoming Cowboys are going to rake in $1.85 million to play Texas at home in Darrell K. Royal-Memorial Field in 2023, the Caspar Star-Tribune reports. From the Star-Tribune: “The payment must be made by Jan. 30, 2024, according to the contractual agreement. Should either team pull out of the game for any reason that isn’t mutually agreed upon, that school would be required to pay the same amount to the other as liquidated damages. The game will be the first matchup between the teams since Texas’ 37-17 win in Austin, Texas, in 2012. The Cowboys are winless against Texas in five all-time meetings.” Yeehaw – let’s get it on.
