He is a jerk but he is right about TxAM 

Man I don’t see it…You can say that about anyone but calling out Texas A&M is just ridiculous IMO.  I don’t agree with you at all here

The richest school just secured the #1 recruiting class of all time….thanks to “NIL”. 

Yes, pay for play has always happened and yes the rich have always benefited from it in college sports.   The introduction of NIL is just a new version on steroids.  Therefore it gets even more extreme. 

Saban speaks the truth.  There just happens to be some hypocrisy in it given Bama is saying it….and were one of the lead dogs of the older model.

Bullshet NIL doesn’t benefit Saban and that is the only thing he is concerned with

Saying this doesn’t benefit the players is ludicrous

These old rich guys are just pissed top recruits can either afford to go wherever they want if they think they can land some sponsorships or they're going to have to pay more off the books to recruit them than they had in the old system. I hope it makes some smaller schools and HBCU's more competitive so we don't see the same schools at the top every year. Quality of facilities/media attention will still differ but I don't see how it's not a good thing for underdogs in general

They are not the richest school (Harvard is by far), but they are tied with Texas for the wealthiest athletic program.

Texas Tied for Richest College Football Program (heartlandcollegesports.com)

 

Texas will probably blow A&M's doors off (again) once they're in the $EC. They're still at the top despite being pretty mediocre for the past decade.

I would think it would just help the major programs separate even further and not actually aid smaller programs. 

and the college football playoff  era is already is coming down to just a handful of teams.  I would think if the NIL doesn’t change….while the teams might change the top from what they are now, the couple teams that emerge will create even more separation.  

everyone hates Dabo and Saban.  And a lot of it is just.  But they have been making a lot of good points about NIL, the portal, etc.

Just gonna need some sort of salary cap. I’m all for the young fellas to get payed but I don’t want players entering the transfer portal chasing cash. Plus I would like to see a good nest egg put away for players that get injured

It's going to be really messy in college sports while this whole NIL process is getting ironed out. It was way past time for something like this to happen but it's gonna be the wild west for awhile.

CBA.

    • You need a more reliable source like a random guy who shares your political views on Facebook, Twitter, or YouTube that “did his own research”
    • Still can't make perfect sense on this 3days later until it leads to either Gordon or Terry package trade.. If not this seem like another example of MJ being cheap AF..
    • You got to give them some slack. They thought they had their perfect coach in Atkinson and then they didn't. They obviously didn't want Mark Jackson and Jordan and Mitch oddly want to retain most if not all of the coaches. In their eyes they were jilted and embarrassed in public by this guy and the negative media afterwards. They turned to somebody they could trust, somebody that already wanted the job and wouldn't say no and has always been a coach that was good at making something out of nothing. I'm not mad here. The trust factor is already there. They really really know each other, Mitch has done waaaaay better than Cho. I would have gave Mark Jackson an interview but I understand why Jordan hired someone who would be more loyal. Unfinished business apparently. It is what it is now. Cliff doesn't shoot. I've already moved past it. You should too. If they sign Miles, Mitch has done well this off-season and this squad is automatically better defensively with 7'2" Williams and Kai coming into the lineup after killing the G League. Experience at coach is what we were missing, a young defensive big was what we were missing. Beelieve!
