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

    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).

    And I thought it was nuts for college programs to offer scholarships to Junior High athletes.......

    Kinda looking forward to seeing where this all leads.

    I have seen reports of individuals giving non-scholarship athletes on certain teams NIL funding equal to the value of a full scholarship. It will be interesting to see how this plays out, as it will be an obvious way for boosters to get around those pesky scholarship limits.

    Meanwhile....


    Over first three months of the NIL Era, some data from @opendorse

    : - B1G leads all conferences in compensation - football & men's basketball account for nearly 80% of compensation - posting content accounts for 87% of activities - DI athletes have made an average of $391 on NIL

    Financial Times...

    Most college athletes don’t have lawyers and are brokering their own deals: 81 per cent of NIL contracts signed so far are valued at less than $100, according to Opendorse. Yet it estimates that top college athletes could eventually earn up to $6.5m a year in endorsements.

    Mottram of Breaking T says that without player unions or associations to negotiate group licensing deals — typical in professional sports — his firm has had to resort to “sliding into the direct messages” of athletes’ social media profiles after they make a big play. It also means bigger-ticket deals, such as video game licensing, which typically need consent from entire team rosters, are not yet feasible. “Are gamers going to be OK with it if only eight of the top 20 quarterbacks are featured in the game? It’s not going to be a great product,” adds Mottram.
