    My BC Visionary Strategic Plan. Your Better Ideas and Thoughts Appreciated!

    The bill currently takes the total scholarship money away from the total revenue and takes 1/2 of that amount divided by the total number of athletes on the team assuring that all athletes get a share.

    Many of us our aware of the new bill being worked on in the State of California that will share as much as 50% of the profits in major sports with the athletes. We do not know what the amended bill will look like, but presently it is the first to tie performance on the field with payment. The...

    Recruiting Period

    We are ahead of many other ACC programs so far. Let's hope we stay in the top four or five in the conference as that is who we have to beat.

    Five star question

    Folks forget that almost 1/2 of 5 stars do not pan out. Key is find kids with athleticism and coach them up. Saban has the highest record of success but he is known as one of the best teachers of techniques -- particularly for linemen, of all coaches. I watched a video of him teaching blocking...

    This man was just fired from Miami and works for a very autonomous boss at BC -- I don't believe we will hear from him until he gets permission to make public statements from the boss -- he wasn't even the one to put the news out about Christian -- we had to hear that from a Syracuse grad that...

    My BC Visionary Strategic Plan. Your Better Ideas and Thoughts Appreciated!

    What we have just seen at Louisville shows what can happen with a 5-star when folks put together some NIL money. Folk sometimes forget that powers like Florida State and Miami (not so powerful today) were more like BC than they were like schools like AL, Ohio State, etc. before they emerged to...

    Mahogany Injury?

    Penny, I agree that BC has great recruits, but last year our offensive line (slated to be one of the best in the country) was not good. Since they had all that talent, we can only surmise that they were not coached correctly. This coaching staff still needs to prove it can develop these kids --...

    Mahogany Injury?

    I feel so bad for the kid as he was projected to be a very high draft pick and this injury will cost him tons unless he comes back and has a great injury-free 2023. In terms of coaching -- even with all his apparent weaknesses, DAZ always had linemen prepared to take over -- we are gong into...

    '23 Position Prediction

    Although folks have been talking about our slow start for 2023 recruiting, it is interesting to note, that even though we have several open slots, we are still rated at 48 at this time -- we should improve on that -- remember DAZ normally ended up with ratings in the mid to high sixties.

    SM, do you have some inside info as most folks have this kid going to Maryland?

    Mahogany Injury?

    The Mahogany injury points out BC's biggest weakness which do not seem to be getting resolved. We do NOT have backups for critical positions. Last year it was QB; this year it is still QB and offensive line. While I believe coach's philosophy of building thru recruiting makes sense, it still...

    Dannyboy, Just perhaps you having this contact with a CUSE fan is a sign that you are the one to lead us into the promise land of NIL that will make sense for BC! hmmmm?????

    This CUSE group really gets it. The schools are concentrating on branding -- going to athletic shoes, clothing, etc. and working out deals for the athletes -- e.g. the school and the athlete share a portion of the profits of a shirt with both the athlete's and school's name on it. Large money...

    These colleges best get their acts together with NIL or the NFL is coming. Here is an example in the NBA who has no problem paying a kid out of high school whether it be with NIL or just payment. There is a kid out of the Atlanta Area named Scoot Henderson, a five star basketball player who is...

    Here is an interview with Paul Finebaum and Ross Dellenger of SI about enforcing NCAA rules affecting NIL -- or rather the lack of enforcement of NIL because of the risk of litigation. This is a must hear.

    Below is an article discussing the NCAA meeting with Miami sponsor John Ruiz who has fostered many deals for both current and perspective Miami athletes -- most notably a basketball transfer who received an 800K payoff to transfer. He willingly met with the NCAA. The NCAA warned Ruiz they would...

    My BC Visionary Strategic Plan. Your Better Ideas and Thoughts Appreciated!

    I wouldn't go as far as you in prescribing the same major for every athlete as I know many BC football and basketball players that have gone on to become successful doctors, lawyers, educators, and coaches -- one is an AD -- so, I can imagine there will be several who will want to enroll in the...

    DE, I think you are on to something genius. NIL is brand new -- so there are very few experts. We lost Kraft because he showed a flair for marketing and NIL -- but who is going to work the hardest and learn the most in this new field -- recent college graduates who have a flair for marketing...

    I think it is important to note that Duke is a tremendous academic school -- yet they have a vision for NIL to keep them in the upper echelon of Basketball powers. So, we just can't ay that it is the SEC and a few other powers who will have substantial NIL programs. And note, Duke is taking NIL...
