According to the NCAA, there are 351 Division I schools, 308 Division II schools, and 443 Division III schools. About 176,000 student athletes compete at the Division I level. There are over 450,000 student-athletes throughout the NCAA schools.

Big schools, little schools, future pro athletes, true amateurs - the NCAA did not offer much control over NIL other than some ambiguous market-value requirements for the transactions. States are trying to fill the vacuum with new regulations. But with such a diverse mix of schools, athletes and money sources, I can see no one-size-fits-all solution. It is going to take years for patterns to form. Only then can specific regs be created to try to level the playing field for all these schools and kids. Meanwhile, I expect chaos, countless headlines about system abuses and loss of fans.
