What are the long term implications of the NCAA’s USC ruling for all member institutions? (ie are schools now responsible for tracking “runners/agents” like they now track boosters)
If so, this standard significantly increaces the compliance burden on NCAA schools. Does this play into USC’s appeal at all?
A: I think schools that have elite athletes are going to have to significantly increase the size of their compliance staff in order to monitor every detail. It’s a thankless task for compliance officers. I don’t think it will affect USC’s appeal one way or another.
