There’s a fine balance. Keep their scholarship money the same and if they want to build their brand with a 3rd party - let them!

There will be problems going forward with NIL. The D1 institutions created this monster by chasing money by way of conference realignment, paying outlandish salaries to coaches,AD’s , etc. The players are only wanting part of the action.

If they do then they also should have to pay for their courses, no scholarships

This would make them professionals, just indirectly rather than direct sponsorship.

I'd rather see a state law prohibiting state employees from publicly supporting professional or college sports, that includes attending games.

99% have full scholarships, that is enough!! It is such a shame that so much is given to athletics.

Many people with scholarships have part time jobs. Are you saying that athletes don't deserve an alternate income source? That seems rather biased to me.

Yes and it's been really different to watch this time . All the speeches have been about one word "UNITE" ! And also I have seen more talk about "GOD" and it shows that things are changing. Prayer will be back in schools. Which we desperately need!

Watched a few minutes here and there and it was all about how much America sucks, how everything is always terrible, and how big of victims they are.
