SCOTUS on Collegiate Sports

For a brief time, I'm posting some placeholder text here regarding the recent SCOTUS decision affirming limits on NCAA financial restrictions on student-athlete benefits. An initial write-up is planned for the June 25 Newsflash email, which will be included as an update here.

Basically, the fact that the NCAA took its objections to the US Supreme Court is, to me, a bit mystifying. What the trial court did and the 9th Circuit affirmed was to narrowly broaden the benefits schools may provide to students that mostly enhance, not detract from, the scholarly end of the student-athlete spectrum. And, it also seems to me, it did so in a way that does not seriously impair and may even enhance the ability of schools outside of the elite levels to compete.
