The Chiefs have the least amount of money available under the salary cap. The NCAA finally decided on eligibility extensions for student-athletes. And the Tokyo Olympics now have a start date.
Here is your daily Dr. Feelgood…
– The Chiefs were $177 under the salary cap as of Monday morning. That’s not in thousands or millions. That’s $177.
IN THE NEWS…
– The NCAA voted to grant an additional year of eligibility to spring student-athletes. Winter student-athletes will not get an additional year of eligibility. Seniors who return will not count against financial aid limits. Teams can carry more members on scholarship to account for incoming recruits and student-athletes who were in their last year of eligibility who decided to stay.
– The Tokyo Olympics were rescheduled to begin on July 23, 2021.
