Re: Question for the resident legal experts

The old saying that those that control the money also control the rules. While there may be a legal argument to make changes in realty the power 5 conferences could leave the NCAA and form a new organization that would exclude the non power conferences entirely

Re: Home team staying at hotels before the game?

There was a ncaa rule change a couple of years ago made it against the rules for a home team to travel to a hotel.
I believe the team still goes out to dinner on friday night and still has meetings before going back to their apartments.
