NCAA approves NIL guidelines, threatens additional funding

The NCAA has taken another step in cracking down on amplifier-led collectives in terms of name, image and similarity (NIL) payments.

The Board of Directors of Section I on Monday approved new guidelines for NIL, clarifying existing bylaws that prohibit amplifiers from being involved in employment. A group of school presidents has printed guidelines that college leaders hope will encourage NCAA implementation staff to investigate potential rule violations, both past and future, he reported. Sports Illustrated last week.

Despite the clarity coming in 10 months in the NIL era, the guidelines should be retroactive. According to the guidelines, NCAA staff have the freedom to investigate those who have grossly violated bylaws in the past.
