While some universities look into possible revenue from legalized sports betting, the NCAA says it remains opposed to that and is focused on protecting student-athletes and the integrity of the games through education and consistent national guidelines.
The NCAA announced Thursday that an internal team of experts has started examining the long-term effect legalized sports betting could have on college sports, including officiating, rules and the use of integrity services.
It may take a couple of years, but five’ll get you ten (see what I did there?) that at some point the NCAA will announce a safe path to raking in those new bucks. Can you say Official March Madness Bracket Pool, sponsored by the NCAA? Sure you can.
