Colleges are losing control with NIL. Outside money will rule the day. Student/Athletes will be a sham just like the One-and-Done. Academics will be lost in the battle. Look at the Transfer Portal, no guarantee that the player will stay that you recruited. I applaud Fr. Leahy for his strong stance on Academic Standards and hope BC Athletics will not fall into this trap. Money and Greed are ruining college athletics.

This is more truth.

College sports as we knew it ended with the legal ruling.

It’s done.
It’s over.

The NCAA was made an official professional sport by SCOTUS because the old NCAA was greedy and arrogant with its huge staff along with big programs wanting a bigger share and an 4/5 year free education was deemed insufficient.

Stipends were an band-aid option and in reality chump change, but the exploitation of student athletes was the ruling and injustice and hence the NIL, ergo paid student athletes, and you shall soon see $3M a year or more NIL.

Bobby Knight, who unbeknownst taught classes and built libraries and was very generous, never had 1 NCAA violation.

BK warned of the NCAA greed and staff abuses for years and was targeted whether you agree with his firing or not.

BK always said the NCAA actions will lead to paying players.

Duke is reloading one and dones this next year too. I want to find out their NIL per player, or maybe the NBA prep by Coach K and future staff is enough value?

You know I'm not an ND fan. But I'm looking at. What colleges can we trust to maintain academic standards for their athletes. Because that day is coming that we will not be able to compete against professional universities. Forget about talk of domed stadiums or 80,000 capacity. We are looking at something like the Ivy League, if the NCAA does not put limits on NIL and transfers.

Yup, I agree and sadly it’s over.

There will never be any limits, it’s just too complicated and complex. It’s a free market economic business so anything goes.

Alas, you are seeing the downfall before many DE68 and there is no turning back.

“I’ll put your face on our car dealership ads for $1M a year as long as you are our starting QB, or worse, as long as you enroll and stay for 2 years,etc., so many NIL variables.

Some will transfer with the lure of, if you start and win, etc; I’ll NIL you $500K and if it isn’t in writing, who knows.

There are so many NIL variables snd possibilities that any restrictions are useless, they will work around it.

The only way is to limit the number of TP transfers you can accept, say 3 more than transfer out, but you have graduating players, etc; and of course, a Judge would rule against it.

So what can the NCAA do. First, ALL transfers of players on scholarship will lose 1 year of eligibility. No waivers and will be specified in all scholarship agreements. Now for NIL. They will be limited to Royalty Agreements in the sale of college items with their NIL. No outside income can be derived from anything outside the college. To do so, the player will lose their amateur status, college eligibility and scholarship.

Can anyone what happened to the NIT basketball tournament in Madison Square Garden. That determined the National Championship, until the NCAA started their tournament. I see something happening to football where the BIG BOYS will have their own college professional league. Its already basically an SEC tournament now. There's no place for a Cincinnati or Boise State or even a Boston College.

Great start DE68, but the Judge blew open Pandora’s box.

Texas kid has $2.4M already?

UT scholarship OL, my guess is 10 guys, get $50K for at least 4 years since losing a scholarship today is very remote with performance.

My guess is some one and done 5 star top 3 Hoops kid will get $2M for an NIL if he attends some school in a frenzied competition and you can bet NBA teams will be suggesting where.

I think there is a good chance BC will no longer be competitive versus top echelon programs if the TP & NIL is not strategically maximized.

Star Pennsylvania QB picks Pitt over BC since Big Lou’s Car dealership gives him $150K a year to do ads and use of a $120K luxury SUV.

BC again, might need a “AngelAlum” or deep pockets NIL business guy?

The latest I heard are cases where not only will the kid get NIL payments but the parents of the kid will not pay any bills for the entire time the kid is enrolled in the college -- with a minimum not to end until his class graduates, and free transportation, food, and lodging to attend all home and bowl games. No matter how much Hafley charms the parents, they will not be recommending BC to their kids. I don't know how many highly rated skill players and QB's will choose BC, but for linemen, this type of payment will negatively affect us.

DE, given the Supreme Court decision and its known unwillingness to legislate business decisions, college presidents may be unable to make rules and regulations other than to de-emphasize. And I doubt that many of us would be really proud of a team that we went out and bought. The NCAA is unable to do anything or most of these power house schools will leave and form their own conference. The court decision is clear that any restrictions will be challenged in court. Looks like college athletes are now considered professional athletes. In fact, I expect that professional athletes that have not completed their college eligibility could also play at the college level considering the money they could make from NIL. What has always made college athletics so attractive is the whole David - Goliath aspect -- that there is always a chance that the underdog can rise up and beat the champ -- stories like Flutie -- Boise upsetting OK on a trick play -- etc. -- each school has their stories and memories. Those won't matter if what we really have is a semi-professional to professional league -- and for that point, will these even have to be matriculating students. What each school has to determine is what it really wants to be. And then, go out an do it right or don't it at all.

Boys,

I think the expression is…

you ain’t see nuthin’ yet!

My guess is some college Presidents will encourage what we posted and love winning, prestige, the National Titles and the TV playoff and Tournament cash.

You're certainly right there, BCE74! Money will buy "College" National Championships. I don't see BC staying in a Power 5 conference where money flows so freely and academics means nothing. Yes, we haven't seen anything yet and the games will soon begin in earnest. Some colleges may reconsider awarding athletic scholarships all together. Free college tuition is chump change for the money that may be floating around.

I’m surprised by the pessimism here. I’d rather BC stay ahead of the curve and decide to compete at the highest level, no matter what that looks like in ten years’ time. Let’s not give up because it’s not pure like it used to be. Compete! Win!

We have competed and won national championships in hockey without becoming a semi-pro hockey team -- so, seeing what Coach York has done, we were looking for that same talent in a coach who can attract the necessary student athletes and coach them up to become champions -- that is what we all dream of in football and basketball -- however, let us hope that the arrival of NIL and the attempts of some schools to field professional athletes does not end up ruining the popularity of college football and basketball. When Jerry York won his last NC, he recruited what was considered the finest incoming college hockey team in the country. The problem was all had signed professional contracts and decided to go pro immediately. This has been the landscape for some of the top tier basketball teams for many many years. We all remember the Flutie years or the Ryan years not the Flutie year or the Ryan year. Difficulties in keeping talented athletes has been around for a while. Wake had one of the better teams in the ACC, because they had many experienced players who did not leave early. The last time Clemson won the NC it had several 5-year players who delayed going pro to play one more year. So, the landscape has been changing for a while and schools were adjusting to it. And now, we have NIL, and some colleges are rushing to develop programs that will pay all of the players a very attractive salary -- probably at least what they would make if they graduated and started their first job as a non-athlete (e.g. TX desiring to offer at least 50K/year to each player. This seems to be the minimum concession to education colleges will have to make in order to field competitive teams. Who knows how many more concessions colleges will have to make in order to be competitive. What do we do when an athlete fails academically? The big question is how far to we go -- when is it too much? I think this will be a very challenging time for all involved, including the fans.
