Good morning, and thanks for your continued support of Extra Points.
I hope all of you had a wonderful 4th of July. A quick announcement before a few stories I want to highlight today:
Will I stop posting and tweeting about Athletic Director Simulator 3000? Sure, eventually. But not today.

College athlete revenue bill delayed until 2024
In my corner of the internet, there’s been a lot of attention given to various state-level NIL reforms, most recently out in New York, that appear to throttle the NCAA’s ability to enforce national policies. Texas and Arkansas, among others, have similar rules, setting the stage for potential significant confrontations between the NCAA and member institutions.
But any disruption over NIL policy enforcement would be minor compared to what lawmakers in California were considering. The College Athlete Protection Act, as written, would have mandated California athletic departments share percentages of revenue with athletes, established a new state board to oversee college athletics, limit the ability of schools to cut sports, and more.
Earlier in June, the California Assembly voted to approve the legislation by the slimmest of margins, as many Democratic lawmakers opted not to vote. But now, according to USA TODAY, the bill will not progress any further this year.
