Why don’t we check in and see how social media is taking in Georgia’s boffo new NIL legislation. I’m sure there are a lot of favorable hot takes…
Yeah, that’s going well. Naturally, there are tons of Georgia fans out there trying to correct the record, but even they’re having to concede the law is stupidly drafted — and for no good reason, since every major school in the state has already walked away from the pooling arrangement.
And those are just the first day hot takes. Imagine what the sales job will be like for Georgia coaches after Nick Saban sadly explains the facts of life to recruits trying to compare Alabama’s NIL law with Georgia’s. Somehow, I don’t think “It’s not fair for just the skill players to take all the money, otherwise why is somebody going to block for you?” is gonna make everything better.
If they ever create an annual award for horseshit purity in the name of Georgia football (call it the Georgia Way Award, natch), I know who I’ll nominate for the first recipient.
