Now go away or I shall sue you a second time.

Boy, this is cocky ($$).

The news coming out of last week’s Big Ten, Big 12 and Pac-12 spring meetings was the NCAA’s impending attempt to crack down on schools’ boosters using NIL payments to land recruits…

Sports agent Russell Smith, whose Utah-based firm Oncoor Athlete Marketing represents around 80 college athletes, had this reaction: “I think it’s adorable that the NCAA is acting as if they’re going to crack down on anything.”

“Adorable”?  That’s “your mother smells of elderberries”-level smack talk.  Not that the NCAA hasn’t earned it.

  2. Russell is probably Mormon…calling someone adorable is akin to saying FU in Utah speak.

    Bless his heart 🧐

      The NCAA is already dead, they just don’t know it yet. And so is college football, we just haven’t (all) fully accepted it yet. We are about 5 years away, at most, from “The Georgia Bulldogs sponsored by The University of Georgia.” The players don’t live on campus, don’t attend class, aren’t even enrolled at school. They are all paid by NIL deals and directly by the team ownership. Sanford Stadium is the home of the team until the team threatens to move to another city, and ultimately does, because of doo doo ice.

      In good news, however, because of the continued influx of cash and the death of – or at least reduction of – title 9 restrictions on scholarships since the football team no longer has or needs scholarships, the SEC gets more actual student-athlete sports such as men’s lacrosse.

      Nicely done, Senator.
