The NCAA's Division I Board of Directors published new guidelines Monday to clarify that boosters -- including recently created companies designed to provide athletes at a particular school with endorsement deals -- should not have any contact with prospective college athletes, their family members or their representatives.

The guidelines were crafted by a working group of athletic directors and conference commissioners who were tasked earlier this year with reviewing the evolving marketplace for college athletes. The NCAA updated its rules last summer to allow college athletes to make money by selling the rights to their name, image and likeness. The group's first public response comes amid growing concern that some boosters and NIL-focused companies, known as collectives, are offering money as incentives to attend a particular school.

It is a start. But more regulations mean higher compliance costs. Even worse, the boosters will not be punsished if the rules are found to be vilolated, and neither will the students -- the University will.

Another case of holding the wrong party accountable -- this is the real weakness of the NCAA. That has never been a fair deal for the universities, who often are unaware of every action that their many boosters are doing.
