New Legislative Proposal Aims To Ease Seniors’ Burden • D1Baseball

Under current NCAA bylaws, student athletes on athletic aid who return for their senior seasons are still required to get at least 25 percent of a scholarship. However, with many programs having year-to-year deals on aid, these seniors are returning to campus for another year with the realization there’s a great chance their scholarship amount will get reduced to make room for prospective student athletes who otherwise weren’t expected to show up to campus because of the draft or other reasons.

Some administrators believe those situations are unhealthy for the sport. Some players depart programs after being told they’re receiving less scholarship money, while from a coaching standpoint, some are forced to run players off to make room for not only the returning senior, but also some incoming players who previously weren’t expected to show up to campus.

What total BS. You are never forced to run a college kid who played 1-3 years for you (Or any other player) off the team. Coaches choose to do so by getting themselves over-extended in the first place in an effort to get a few more wins and bolt for a better gig. At least pretend that it's collegiate sports and that you give a crap about the players.

I am eagerly awaiting the fallout of the new CA law allowing college athletes to get paid. I hope it brings the whole NCAA structure crashing down.

You're either a college student, or a minor leaguer. Mixing the two damages education, and rips off the players.

I was thinking more the ads one runs into on various websites that turn out to be deeply disingenuous when (and if) you actually click on them.
