Now that gambling is legal across the country, is it fair to say that college football DFS is coming back this fall and college basketball in the spring? Sorry if this has been asked already, but I was thinking about it when I saw the article about NCAA not wanting a cut of the gambling proceeds.
“The NCAA’s leadership will not pursue so-called integrity fees for the association even though it recognizes that the anticipated spread of legalized sports betting will require it to spend money to monitor betting patterns for indicators of potential irregularities in college games, a top-ranking executive of the organization said Thursday.
Speaking to a group of college athletic business administrators at the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics’ annual convention, NCAA senior vice president and chief financial officer Kathleen McNeely said that if sports gambling continues to operate under regulation on a state-by-state basis, it will be up to individual schools to decide whether they want to pursue this type of money. (The NCAA and the NFL are advocating for federal regulation of sports betting.)”
Would be nice to hear from DK, FD, or even Draft about whether they have plans to bring it back.
