They bring in a ton of $ to the schoolWhy is it long overdue?
Free tuition, room, board. An opportunity to be developed to play professionally with some of the finest equipment, facilities, coaching, etc all at no cost.
What is enough to satisfy these kids? $50K/year? $100K/year? If those numbers are real, what justifies payments that are more than many college graduates earn upon graduation, especially when a very large majority (is it 90-95%) have no prospect of going pro? Why not consider the free tuition, room, board, meals, training etc as a campus work study program and leave it at that?
Not being able to accept $ is absurd in my opinion
Like I’ve said numerous times…. Some people will never get on board with an NIL. And that’s fine, I understand and respect that.
Others of us have been clamoring for it for a long time, and are happy that it’s finally here
