A little late here, but this is a little momentum toward student athletes being able to earn money using their name, image, and likeness (NIL) as the Florida governor signed their own version of a NIL bill. Two states now have laws set to begin in the coming years. The likely best solution is a uniform one at the national level, otherwise things will get messy as these different laws come into effect.

Even though plans for the return of sports are starting to move forward, we are far from "normal." This was a great video by CNBC that discusses the entire topic from the beginning of the pandemic, to where we are now and what we can expect.

The shutdown of college sports has caused a massive amount of disruption, but its largest impact may be the speeding up of change that has the potential to rock the NCAA forever. College sports, particularly football and basketball, is a massive business and perhaps we may see the power conferences make move in a direction to treat it as such. There is no question that the NCAA and college athletics is set to drastically change in the years to come.

With the novel coronavirus still looming, its impact on live sports will be lasting. Professional leagues are starting to play games, but how soon will we see fans in stadiums again? Assuming universities are able to open up this fall, how soon will college football be able to bring fans back? For university athletics, this has got to be the biggest question.

This SI article was about one of our local teams in Utah, which also happens to be one I am a fan of, so naturally it caught my eye. It is very interesting to think about how changes in Name, Image, and Likeness (NIL) rules will impact some schools over another. Will we see a big fish in a little pond versus little fish in a big pond scenario? The stars with national appeal would obviously have an advantage no matter where they go, but an athlete in a program in a smaller market could still do quite well locally, like for Fresno State. BYU is an interesting example of a program with a large following across the United States and even globally. The impact of NIL will be intriguing to watch in the coming years.

This was an interesting take on what a post-pandemic sports world is going to be like. Will fans return in the same way? The author speaks about how people are adapting to new habits, so will they really return to sports in the same way, if at all? Teams should regularly engage with their fans to stay top of mind, especially as there is a lack of games and competitions, so fans do not "go away" during this forced offseason.
