Wasn't there a DL for UGag that was a 3 star just drafted in the first round?
Hey maroon, according to UGA, January 1st, 1983 is the birthday of the internet. And even so, how many NCs does UGa since we were born? Now how many for Gators? But let's pick and choose what years are important. UF wasn't great before they let colored kids play....but that was LONG ago.
Lol, for the first time since the internet was invented, dog fans can write about having a NC. Isn't that cute.
Why does everyone want the coaches and the athletic programs at the schools to be the only parties making money? Do y'all really think the athletic departments are just trying to get these kids an education? If that was the goal, why did they sell out to TV? Why have kids playing 15 football games a season now? It's a business now, that's all.
So only about 25 make money, but at least 82 schools are paying their head coach over 1 million a year?!? Nobody suggests putting a cap on coaching salaries to help control profits....because that would be illegal. The players are going to get a share, and the schools will simply adapt.
Hearing fans side with the schools on the players getting a share of the money reminds me of those that side with the owners in pro sports leagues. Matt Hayes is 100% correct in the schools and coaches were happy getting filthy rich off the old system, that's why they hate that the players are going to get a piece of the pie.
He's not a coach. His son is playing golf there, and he is offering his assistance in starting their football program. I'm sure he's living a little easier than any of us.
Why would a fan base be humiliated by a coach not being as successful as they want? Have you spent most of your life embarrassed to be a dog fan? Mullen won as many NCs as an OC at UF as your dog's have won in our lifetimes. You may put a little too much emphasis on your stupidity.
For example: a coach making $10 million a year could still make a million, and give every scholarship player on the team a 100k a year. Things seem to be a little out of sorts.
The other programs get some ofnthe money, but cfb is a huge money making business. Everyone involved in making the hundreds of millions annually deserve some of the money though. Not just the schools and coaches.
Money became the big factor when college football sold out to TV money. If TV isn't the boss, give me the starting time of a few games for any team. And don't wait until the networks tell us when it will be.
Exactly Dirty. CFB sold out to TV money and nobody seemed to mind until the players wanted their share. CFB is a huge business now, there is plenty money for all involved.
Starting over for Pitt. Qb & all American WR have moved on. It's gonna be tough for Pitt to have another magical season.
Ok. I'm going to admit I went back and read that stupid novel because you begged. I now realize you're not just aj idiot GA troll, but a conspiracy idiot too. The funny part about conspiracy idiots to me is when something doesn't happen that they predicted, they simply move the goalposts. Get outside and get some sunshine dude. The world isn't ending just yet.
Tell me you believe it's good to be so broke you can't afford to buy yourself a meal. Tell me you believe it should be against the rules for someone to financially assist me to fly home for a family funeral. All this while those profiting off of my work are making hundreds of millions.
I agree Nash, if he wins this lawsuit, almost every player from high school up should be able to get a check.
Illegal: coach to recruit, we will get you an NIL deal worth x amount. Legal: our current player is making x amount on an NIL deal. We believe you are that kind of star. Simply hiding the money promises again.
Good thing FJB has the prices on gas and groceries falling so much. That and crime levels falling so fast sure makes everyone feel better about not having to read those mean tweets anymore :)
The only chance they have to level the playing field on NIL is to get the players to form a union and become a part of the negotiated agreements. Otherwise they're going to violate antitrust laws with any limits and attorneys will clean their clocks in court.
Well the average NFL playing career is less than 4 years. Does that mean the players aren't experts either. It's an entertainment league. Win or move on, for all involved.
Tell us you think you're the center of the universe without telling us.
He still hasn't been medically cleared to play at UF. Will be interesting to see if a school will clear him. He's a great player, but probably should move on to coaching.
Maybe we should take a 40 year vacation, then show back up and act like we were here all along :)
Be careful what you ask for. Everyone wanted the playoffs, and they are part of the reason cfb is imploding. NIL isn't a school issue, it's a problem of no one should be able to stop a kid from earning money off his name.
There were some new rules presented to the NCAA this week. One was setting times for entry into the portal. Removing restrictions on recruiting periods was another. Also taking all limits off coaching staffs was suggested. NIL will be tougher to deal with. As technically the schools aren't supposed to be doing it.
The way our system works is he with the most money gets his way most of the time. Our local DA just received Federal Prison time for accepting bribes.
That is exactly . TV money has been driving this train for years now. Some fans are blaming the portal & NIL for destroying the sport, when in reality the amount of money being thrown at conferences has money grabbers out in force. No one has stopped and come up with a long term plan
