(#357) NCAA to propose new level of D-I where athletes can be paid
In today’s issue, in a letter to 350 Division I schools on Tuesday, NCAA president Charlie Baker is calling for a total reformation of Division I athletics, including a new tier where schools will be allowed to pay athletes directly.
What does this mean for college hockey? It could have a widespread ripple effect. What about the future of the Frozen Four? Could this kickstart realignment?
Also in this issue, I have my weekend reactions from Hockey East, the Big Ten, and Atlantic Hockey, including:
Jacob Fowler has been a stud for BC.
Northeastern feels like it might be back on track.
UVM beat UMass on Friday, with credit given to the video coach.
Michigan’s penalty kill is improving.
Wisconsin swept Ohio State.
Holy Cross feels back on track in Atlantic Hockey.
