[Ed. – What’s the NCAA going to do, tell SEC or other Power-5 football teams they can’t play Alabama? This is where sports power comes into play. Texas, Florida – this can be done. Get NCAA out of the business of enforcing federal mandates and make Biden do his own enforcing. If he can.]
Last week, I covered the story of Alabama’s legislature passing HB391, which would ban males from competing in girls’ sports.
The crux, as worded by the bill:
Relating to public K-12 schools; to provide that no public K-12 school may participate in, sponsor, or provide coaching staff for interscholastic athletic events at which athletes are allowed to participate in competition against athletes who are of a different biological gender, unless the event specifically includes both biological genders.
At the time, it was uncertain as to whether the state’s Republican governor — Kay Ivey — would sign it into law.
On Friday, Kay put pen to paper.
