RE: California challenging NCAA's amateurism rules
California is doing this because a lot of their students are leaving the state to other schools outside of California. This is a bribe to get the best players from Alabama and Clemson to transfer to one of the schools in the state. These bills are not in the best interests of the student athletes. It just hurts the players and the sports more.

The South Carolina bill would give athletes $2,500/year directly. That's what small population states will do.

NCAA has failed to be proactive for a century. Time's up.

The States have no jurisdiction over the NCAA. They can pass all the laws they want, but if the NCAA does not allow it, the Schools can not do it if they want to remain in the NCAA.

A lack of college football content from California hardly seems an existential threat to ABC, ESPN, and the other networks.

Somewhat separately: I wonder what fans of Fresno State, San Diego State, and San Jose State are thinking. I can't imagine this would great for them. Is the next Trent Dilfer really going to sign a letter of intent with Fresno State when a UCLA recruiter is telling him how bigger his profile would be if he played in Los Angeles? This really could create an even more uneven playing field.

Although, it could swing the other way too. Why play in Starkville, Lexington, or Columbia when you could build a better profile if you played for a decent team in Houston, Philadelphia or Orlando?

Is the membership going to kick out the schools from California, Tennessee, Washington, South Carolina, Colorado and New York if all have a January 1, 2023, effective date?

Doubt it.
