How will "Bathroom Bills" impact college sports?
First, please don't debate whether so-called "bathroom bills" are right or wrong, or if California is right/wrong on prohibiting travel to these states. I don't want this thread to end up in the Spin Room. I want to discuss how this affects college sports.


California has banned any "STATE-FUNDED AND STATE-SPONSORED TRAVEL" to states with transgender bathroom bills. I have confirmed that this includes any travel by any university representative that will be reimbursed by any source affiliated with the university (including the endowment or other private donors arranged through the school). To my knowledge, this includes the sports team of any state-sponsored university.

As of now, the list of banned states is Tennessee, Kansas, Mississippi, and North Carolina. Also, a dozen more states (including Washington and Wyoming) have introduced "bathroom bills" to their legislatures this year.

If Washington or Wyoming pass their bathroom bills, this means that conference games will have to be canceled for Cal & UCLA or for San Diego State, Fresno State, and San Jose State. Could this cause more conference reallignment? Or will the state schools in Washington/Wyoming (or whoever else passes a bathroom bill) abandon their right to home conference games?

I hope everyone keeps it civil.

I checked and Wyoming isn't scheduled to play San Diego St again until 2019. So they have a few years to work it out.

According to your link, Texas is in that list. Houston is a state school, so I guess San Diego St can't play Houston on the road if they ever join the AAC's western wing. They can't play us (ECU) or Memphis either if that link means what you are saying.

We haven't passed a bathroom bill yet. The Lt. Gov. wants one, and the Gov. does not. I doubt it passes. We really do not have a bathroom problem, just a politician problem.

The link you're referring to is the list of the states that are considering bathroom bills. Texas hasn't passed a bathroom bill yet. The full list:

Already Passed a Bathroom Bill
Kansas
Mississippi
North Carolina
Tennessee

Has a Bathroom Bill Introduced to the Legislature, but hasn't passed it yet:
Alabama
Illinois
Kansas (I don't know why they're on this list too)
Kentucky
Minnesota
Missouri
South Carolina
Texas
Washington
Wyoming

It also says, "Legislation in 10 states is pending (as of 2/1/17). Legislation in South Dakota and Virginia failed to pass."

The OP wanted a comment on California public schools canceling games in the 4 states that California has identified as a no-go: North Carolina, Tennessee, Kansas and Mississippi, and the "dozen more states" that were in his link. I don't follow this issue, but if this means games will be impacted, like UCLA, USC etc. decide to cancel games vs teams in the states they disagree with on this issue, I would think those 3 would have to leave the conference and go Independent, as all conferences would have a team that is located in states that go another way (against their political beliefs)
Cheers!

Already Passed a Bathroom Bill
Kansas--so you're saying no games for California schools here?
Mississippi--no games for California schools here?
North Carolina--no games for California schools here?
Tennessee--no games for California schools here?

Maybe no road games for California schools in these states if they become politically like the above 4 states?
Alabama
Illinois
Kansas
Kentucky
Minnesota
Missouri
South Carolina
Texas
Washington
Wyoming

They would have to leave the PAC 12 and MWC and start their own conference where non-California states/potential conference mates align with their political beliefs. I don't believe this will happen.

Cheers!

Even though Stanford and Rice are private, playing in Australia, rather than Houston, avoids this thorny issue.

That had nothing to do with this though did it? I never heard a word of games being moved by California schools until this thread.
