No football program left behind

If it strikes you as being a little bizarre that the NCAA’s retreat from any meaningful enforcement of players’ rights to NIL compensation makes it likely that football programs in states with NIL laws may turn out to be disadvantaged from a recruiting standpoint from those in states without… well, you’re not alone.

It’s an aggression that cannot stand, man.

Wanna bet said aide is in a state with an SEC school?

    I think that Andy Schwarz guy is mis-stating or dissembling. Just my senile guess, but the biggest threat is other states leapfrogging your state’s law. Unintended consequences are a problem too, but secondary. Sounds like Saban’s legislative staff members are on the mother. Arms race here we come.

    For those that believe NIL will send the “bagman” to an early retirement are sadly mistaken, he is alive and well…

    Wanna bet said aide is talking about the State of Georgia with its “pooling” provision?

    Let me observe the irony of how signing a few autographs for money ruined Todd Gurley’s Heisman candidacy when he was the best player in America. Now look at what’s happened. What happened to Gurley should be laid directly at the feet of gutless Greg McGarity.

  5. Does the NCAA “no rules” position constitute a rule that negates the Georgia law? Asking for Kir…errrr…a friend.

      My first thought too. By the NCAA revoking the section on payment enforcement, coupled with their let the schools decide ruling it should trigger the Georgia escape clause. UGA should ask for AG opinion on it ASAP.

    Well, maybe I don’t know but it seems to me that the NCAA was created in order to bring some uniformity to college sports. Everyone seemed to agree it was a good idea for everyone to play by the same rules. The problem arose when the NCAA kept sticking to rules that were just wrong. Hell, the NCAA hasn’t even enforced its own rules uniformly. Compare SMU from some years ago with UNC more recently. A rational group of people could have done a much better job than the NCAA has done. Now we have to go through some wild west times until we can figure it out.
