    The “ Wild West” indeed…. I have not read anything so far that there are any hard and fast rules on what NIL will encompass. I just hope that these young athletes have the foresight/guidance to seek out financial planning with regard to taxes and investment. I suspect that pro agents for the various sports will get involved, and an opportunity for them to expand their market, good or bad.

      See Dr Jay's post right after yours.
      Boosters used to have to hire them for summer jobs to launder the hundreds of thousands of dollars they gave them. Now they can do it for an autographed jersey.

        I guess a players' union makes sense in this environment.

              Did you cut-n-paste or provide a link? That's what gets me 'unapproved' sometimes. It's trying to stymie bots.

                  Quinn Ewers… QB for Southlake Carroll, A suburb of Dallas Fort Worth metroplex, is forgoing his senior year of high school eligibility to enroll early at Ohio State so he can take advantage of NIL. I haven’t heard of any others in the Dallas area, or Texas for that matter. Just wonder if there’s others from around the country. His father said they want to take advantage of endorsements under NIL…. Will be interesting to see how this plays out.

                    Meanwhile....the WSU football coach confirms he is a complete idiot...

                    For the coach of a team that played only four football games the past season because of COVID-19, Washington State’s Nick Rolovich has staked out an astonishing hill upon which he could die, giving literal meaning to the increasingly hackneyed expression.

                    Worse, his linguistic legacy could become an American verb:

                    To Rolovich: Acting in a manner stubbornly contrary to science, common sense, public health, sports-team principles and employment contracts, while offering no explanation for the behavior.

                    His surprising refusal to accept a vaccination, announced July 21 in a video ahead of the Pac-12 Conference’s annual media confab in Los Angeles, made for a national controversy and magnum embarrassment for WSU. The school had just cleaned up after eight untidy years with former football coach Mike Leach, and now comes a fresh mess “for reasons that will remain private,” Rolovich said.

                            Oregon defensive end Kayvon Thibodeaux has signed and endorsement deal with United Airlines.

                            https://www.espn.com/college-footbal...nited-airlines

                            Also, as with the NFL, this season Big 12 teams will have to forfeit games if they have too many players out with COVID-19 to field a team.

                              Serious money now for a college player.

                              Thibodeaux has committed to deals with roughly $400,000, a source told ESPN.
