Oh, well forgive me then. I shouldn't have put words in your mouth.

In any case, the NCAA is an evil institution, its only real purpose as an exploitative legal and administrative entity, and it's going down! The genie's out of the bottle anyway. As if they're going to go back to strictly enforced amateurism... I just wish top NCAA officers could go to prison for what they've done, or at least be sued personally into complete penury and die broken men. Wish there was some sort of legal mechanism for that. But like most all serious social change, the perpetrators of the previous criminal regime are going to walk away scot free, with only their guilty consciences as punishment.....

They still got their hooks in the men's basketball tournament, March Madness. Which I believe is the sweetest plum of them all. But the sport of CFB is gonna break away, and the players are going to make the money they deserve....
Other than sending people to prison I agree with what you said.

Michael Pratt?

I never said it wasn't in trouble, I said the connection you made to the SCOTUS case was wrong. The reason the NCAA is in trouble is because the new super conferences will not need them.

Also, I am not wish casting. I don't like the TP of the new NIL rules but crying about them does nothing. I coach's job is to win within the rules and laws. If teams want to impose other standards than those imposed by the governing body based on their values, that is fine. But they shouldn't cry about the impact of their own decision.

Michael Mayer

No reason to play lots of games after 3 losses. Maybe wrong, but did not seem like Hamilton was in any rush to come back.

It comes down to what you want. There are 1000 people who play through including the bowl and 1 Jaylon.

I don’t know why universities don’t take up insurance to protect kids if they want them to play.

Would be easy for an actuary to put a cost/payout.

Mayer would be 20M. Foskey 10M

Probably cost ND 100k for the entire team
Hamilton set a new precedent by sitting out half the season.

Well that's a relief. You're still wrong, the NCAA is still very much toast, which is why they're not daring to enforce anything, whatever's left of their rule book, and their little bylaws. But being an actual lawyer gives you courage enough to at least wishcast it the way you'd prefer it to be.

How many were getting actual PT? Prob nothing more than guys trying to see the field at the most competitive roster in the country, NIL maybe responsible for 1-2?
Cohen was a starter on OL , knight played and probably a starter next year on OL. Earle, Holden, wr that played, Jackson an occasional starter at db and a likely starter in 23. Brockmyer has been a bust so far , Leary a wr who hasn’t played much. Can’t recall who the others are. But a mixed bag, definitely losing some depth, some bench guys and yes some going for better nil deals

Michael Pratt?

Yes, I am a lawyer, and I didn't interpret it, I quoted it. All the court did was apply the same antitrust rules that apply to all business to the NCAA. They didn't say anything about the NCAA racket and went out of their way to say they weren't adjudicating anything other than the antitrust issue.

And you do seem to give an F to my opinions, as evidenced by the frequent response to them.

A LB from cal hit the portal today and committed to ucla this afternoon. Who honestly believes there was no prior contact between the two parties ? Drake Maye quoted as saying 15 schools had contacted him and money was involved. Tampering is rampant. College football is in fre fall
It's not in free fall. Everything is completely fine. What is it with you people where you associate all this wheeling and dealing with the demise of the sport? How is there any connection between the two? The sport has seemingly never been more popular, with massive TV contracts piling up one on top of the other....

I think it's because you guys are so used to dealing in bad faith, whenever you opine on virtually any subject under the sun, you just start impulsively fear-mongering. It's just the language you guys speak I guess. I should be used to that much by now....

It was always my understanding that Notre Dame also gave four-year scholarships.

I know for certain if you got hurt, you kept your scholarship because there was a guy in my freshman English class who blew his knee out in September of that year. He knew he was never going to play again, but said he had been assured he would continue to receive his scholarship.

Years after college, I worked with a guy who attended Oklahoma. He tore his hamstring and never made it back to playing condition. First they booted him out of the athletic dorm when his recovery lagged, and then they ended his scholarship when it became apparent he could no longer play.
I thought they give four-year rides too, but I really didn't know.

Michael Pratt?

Yeah? So you got it all figured out then? You interpreted it perfectly, and all those lawyers and other pundits and assorted legal observers who are heralding the death of the NCAA as we know it are all just a bunch of woke little bitches who clearly don't get it?

Is that it? Please tell me you're at least a lawyer yourself. And not one of those internet autodidacts who reads the reports themselves, even though, why would I give a F what your own personal amateur take on a matter of fairly esoteric expertise? Especially when there's countless experts already opining on the subject. So hopefully you're a lawyer....

If it's any consolation the NCAA might be able to pull an end run, and get some sort of federal protection, which is reportedly what they're trying to arrange in a last-ditch attempt. But they have so much blood on their hands by now, no lawmakers want to be associated with that, doing their devil's work for them. Their brand is poison at this point. And I think their moment may have passed....

Yes, there are still anti tampering rules and yes, the NCAA still has the abilty to enforce things as to their member institutions. The problem is they are easily circumvented. If a player calls a friend or any other player and asks him to transfer to his school, that isn't improper under the rules. There probably isn't too much improper tampering just because you really don't need to.
