How Do You Keep Up?
« on: July 01, 2024, 09:51:49 AM »
Auburn gets up to #4 or #5, depending on which recruiting service you look at, then two decommit, and we’re right back down out of the top 10.  Not anything to worry about, IMO, because there’s a long way to go, and we’re at the top of the lists of a ton of big recruits.  Another top 10 finish would be neato-keen, like a Ford Mustang.

Right now, there are no rules, other than NIL is supposed to be something handled outside the control of the Universities and Athletic Departments, which we know is complete BS, but still.  We’re seeing so many decommits around the sport, which makes it clear that one of two, or probably both of these things are happening.  First, these kids are making commitments based in large part on NIL deals, but the bidding war continues, and they leave for a better offer. Second, they’re using schools to secure an NIL deal, putting money in their pockets, then leaving for a school they intended to go to all along. Double, and sometimes, triple dipping. 

College foosballs has changed so much in the past 3-4 years alone, and it’s about to take another turn here shortly.  Players will either become employees, or not employees, or people gettin’ a paycheck, or some something or other.  Let’s just say they’re about to get a piece of the revenue pie.  So, what happens from there? Does NIL stop? And if NIL is no longer a thing, aren’t we right back to the system we had?  Doesn’t matter if the players are getting paid from the revenue, there’s still going to be bag men making the deals.  Or, does NIL just keep on rocking in addition to revenue sharing?

Too much, too fast and none of it is good for the game.

My doctor told me I needed to stop masturbating.  I asked him why, and he said, "because I'm trying to examine you."

Seems to me all we have to do is get who's being overly hyped or some kid another team supposedly covets.
Watch out for that.
Top ten is enough for me and even better when our positional needs are met.
