The NIL is destroying college football. Someone is going to have to step in and give each college a set limit to spend on players otherwise, the NIl is going to destroy college football.   This is simply not sustainable. 

 

Schools can not spend any money on players. NIL rules allow a player to be paid by private entities for use of his name, image or likeness. No one is going to step in a set a limit on how much a player can make from these types of endorsement deals. 

We definitely need some guiderails in place but don't look for that to come in the way of an NIL cap. Hopefully we can at least get some handle on the tampering issue that seems to be running rampant right now.

The newest strategy.

 

So they're giving $6K to each football player just to pass their required courses and calling it an academic scholarship?

It's  a really good read on SI.com.  Not a big fan of SI, but this guy did a good job on finding out the info in his story. Over 100 universities getting guildlines and task force to present to the NCAA this upcoming week in Arizona. Have to see where it goes this upcoming week.

This is the academic enhancement benefit that got the green light this last year. Texas athletes were eligible for the benefit starting this spring. I believe something like only 20 or so NCAA schools were set to start participating.

I wonder what the criteria is for receiving this additional money. Is it a minimum GPA in their chosen field, or just pass the required courses? It sounds like that is up to the school and the student leaders. Also sounds like each school could have a different criteria.

Only 20 schools set to participate.   Sounds like the start of a SUPER Conference were by only money schools can participate.  Eventually there is going to be college football plus and then college football for every one else.
