The NCAA announced Tuesday it plans to introduce stricter penalties against schools and coaches that commit infractions.

The changes, via On3, include: Publicly naming individuals involved in wrongdoing and creating a public database of coaches with a history of Level I/II violations, expanding coaching suspensions to include days between contests, expanding disassociation penalties for boosters engaged in rules violations, and attaching penalties for schools that employ individuals during a show-cause order.

The new rules could be in place by as early as January 2024.

Naturally, news of the rule changes took social media by storm.

Pat Forde of Sports Illustrated pointed out that the coaching suspension rule change has to do with Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh, who was allowed to be around his team all week and only suspended on gameday. Harbaugh’s suspension was imposed by the school, not the disciplinary committee, so he could still fall victim to the new rule.

Another fan pointed out that Kansas had five level 1 allegations issued against them over four years ago, and we’re just now seeing some sort of accountability, a testament to the NCAA’s entire process.

Another fan doesn’t think the NCAA will actually enforce any of this, as has been proven in the past.

Another pointed out an interesting wrinkle about how the new rules could impact NIL opportunities, as NIL collectives are considered boosters by the NCAA.
