It'll be interesting in the next few years what types of regulations are placed on these teams. These kids can make way more than $4,000 a year playing online. Are they going to be able to do both?
Yes to the last question. I believe they won't be sanctioned/governed by the NCAA. Sort of like how roping/reining/rodeo stuff isn't an NCAA sport but has their own weird governing body who runs the national tourneys. Some chick from A+M, Hailey Kinsel, won like 400 grand at The American.
