The difference here was that originally it was to take effect on 8/1/21; a successful vote will enact it on 8/1/20.

Turns out this was also hidden in a more general notice of changes. I didn't realize it was in there by the headline.
This might also lead to scholarship number changes per sport.

Council members also adopted legislation that would exempt from counting against team limits need-based financial aid given by the school that meets other specific criteria and other school-given, merit-based awards with no relationship to athletics ability. The rule is effective Aug. 1, 2020.

In conjunction with passing the legislation, the Council asked the Student-Athlete Experience Committee, which recommended the change, to conduct a comprehensive review of financial aid rules, including counter numbers per sport, average equivalencies per sport and roster numbers per sport. The study will ensure the legislation is helping students as intended.

BTW- in looking at this further I'm thinking the BOD part might be more of a rubber stamp or minor wording changes. We should know Monday.
