    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.

    Of course, American universities are known for their communist indoctrination.
    I know that actually is a stereotype, but as someone who studied at the epicenter (with Berzerkely-across-the-bay) at the absolute height of the radical leftist movement (early 70s), I recall ZERO Communistic ideologies being bandied around. This was still the height of the Cold War and very few ideologues who wanted to wield any power were espousing Communism as it existed then.

    Super-left-wing Progressivism? Absolutely. I think (we) Baby Boomers used that momentum to get Obama elected. That's about it.
    Maybe that's the silver-lining to the current political impasse we find ourselves mired in today. Neither side is getting their way, and in many cases, that's a good thing!

    Many non-athletes are already called "student workers." They work in the library, the dining halls, the residence halls, etc.

    Of course, American universities are known for their communist indoctrination.

    Perhaps they'll just be enrolled in their university's work study program 😏

    at long last we might be free of that ridiculous "student-athlete" terminology?

    my only fear is that the NCAA's reaction will be to modify it to "student-athlete-employee"!

    Could be..but why not wait until next summer....unless of course he was burnt out and didn't want to do cross country. So why delay it. It has been a long season. Teare's ended in June.

    I think that when the big schools have their current Nike/Adidas/etc. contract about to expire, the new contracts will include a cut for athletes in at least football and basketball. What's another $850K to Nike to add in a $10K NIL contract for each scholarship football player in order to get the apparel contract for a blue blood program.
    Or they could just subtract it from the millions they give the coaches. Are coaches making 8-figure salaries going to make a fuss over less than a million going to his players? It would be a public relations and recruiting disaster.
