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.

Do you like what you see in the Memorial Stadium improvement renderings?

UM athletics is an arm of govt. they do not earn anything. That Univ produces nothing but obnoxious computer geeks who get jobs for state govt agencies like the DOT spending their days synchronizing traffic lights that nobody understands like the asburgers nerd we have in my hometown up here in NWMO

Would you like the name and number of a state employee who is a graduate of this university? Who continues to support this athletic program? Would you join our effort to remove him from state employment for being a UM grad?

MU Athletics makes their money the hard way - they earn it.

Like most drivers, I have one hand holding my fast food, other hand holding my cell phone, a knee on the steering wheel, and rarely look up from my cell phone so I don't know if other drivers are so irresponsible to be driving distracted or not. I certainly don't drive distracted, that's bad. FJB

Many time ppl are seen looking/using phone while driving crossing the line on the road or having to slam on their brakes so they don't hit the car in front of them.
