Prep QB coach Denny Thompson of 6Points joined the podcast to discuss the unintended consequences of the NCAA’s decision to grant Division I fall student athletes an extra year of eligibility and an extra year to complete their eligibility.
Denny chatted with me for my Forbes piece on the issue hours after the decision was announced, so in this podcast we’re diving deeper into why this isn’t a win for many student athletes. We focused on football specifically, but much of what we discussed applies to all fall student athletes.
With depth charts blown and uncertainty around who will stay and who will go, and how athletic departments will fund expanded rosters, there are many questions and few answers. However, we explore of much of it as we can at this time and chew on lots of food for thought.
