I think a much bigger impact for getting us over the hump vs G5 football due to sheer numbers of athletes per sport. $100k per softball, baseball player and $250k per hoops - much more effective per dollar. Wondering which lower tier schools figure this out first. Would be interested to see what Grand Canyon did for hoops ( mentioned on the ASOR NIL podcast ).By the way - Wichita Shockers comes to mind immediately for hoops and baseball...

Boosters should not be involved in the recruiting process. Recruiting should be between Coaches and the athlete, no 3rd party involvement. I blame this entire mess on weak/non-existing leadership at NCAA headquarters with both NIL and transfer portal.You constantly rant about how poor the NCAA leadership is, while at the same time saying they should decide things like which transfers are "hardship cases.". I actually agree with you that there needs to be some sort of restriction on NIL $$ that will prevent bidding wars for top recruits. At the same time I have to confess I have no idea how that would work.

I'd like to see a school get caught "buying a player" off Portal, to see what action NCAA takes.It's not the schools who are doing this. That is a no no. It's individual boosters, businesses and NIL collectives like the one ASOR just started, which is legal. I believe Manson has already stated that our collective will focus exclusively on athletes already enrolled and will not be involved in recruiting.

We certainly blame God for a lot of things.
This also extends to pastors and church leaders. I have seen it at least 50 times. "God is now calling me to another place"
I almost never believe this crapola, because it is almost 100% self serving.
Oh well, just an interesting side note to me. I don't want anyone here, who doesn't want to be here. Just tell the truth, don't blame it on God.
