    How's it any different than kids having a job while being athletes? All sorts of workplace abuses already exist on top of the stuff that goes on from coaches in their sports too. This isn't going to make things worse, just different. But sure, lets have outrage over kids earning a few bucks and learning how commerce works (good, bad & ugly).

      Exactly....I think it is a fine idea.

        A few bucks? Learning how commerce works? I wish I had your idealism. This isn't about the kids; it's shady adults trying to stack teams with $$$ enticement. Think Texas, add all the abuses already extant, then multiply by . . . A LOT. Yes, some PARENTS will get very rich - I'm sure that won't be abused either.

        Will some deserving kids get a fair share of the pie? Yup, that too.

            Good, but I didn't mean Texas itself. "Think Texas" refers to how huge Friday Nights are and to what lengths coaches, boosters and parents will go to get an edge. If a kid has an NIL contract waved in his face, the cockroaches will appear.

              We call that "Florida" now

              Things have tightened up quite a bit here.

                All it will take is a booster or business to get burned a few times on high school recruits not panning out that they'll rethink how much they hand over to recruits in the future.

                After a few years it'll work itself out.

                  Must be an unsubstantiated rumor. Non-scholarship athletes aren't good enough to attract that amount of money, otherwise they'd have a scholarship (possible exceptions are Ivy League and Division III, where they don't give any athletic scholarships).
                  What about Oregon track and field, LSU baseball, Minnesota hockey and other big time minor sports programs for which the NCAA doesn't give enough scholarships to fill out a roster?

                    I don't know about the rest of the Big 10 but Minnesota has a roster limit for men. Irregardless of scholarships.

                    I don't see Nike getting into this with Oregon track....the team already runs in Nike stuff. And who else would bother except for a pittance.

                      If anything, things are worse here now.

                        How Paige Bueckers' first NIL deal could shift standards for female athlete sponsorships

                        https://sports.yahoo.com/uconn-how-p...203954804.html

                        Paige Bueckers, the reigning Naismith Player of the Year, signed her first major name, image and likeness (NIL) deal on Wednesday in a move that could have a long-term impact on women athletes in the collegiate and professional ranks.

                          We'll see....

                          Doesn't UConn already have a shoe deal?

                              Her deal was with StockX. Would Nike consider them a competitor?

                                She probably still has to wear Nike gear on the court in official UConn games. The NIL thing doesn't mean athletes get to wear their individual sponsor's brand in competition.
