All this is going to do is allow the boosters that were already paying the big time recruits to do so legally and out in the open. What's to keep Nike from paying a kid that is an absolute no brainer superstar like Zion a million dollars to come to Oregon? If they are going to pay him $90M or whatever he just got after he graduates, who cares whether they cut one or two million off the top and give it to him a year early?

    The major issue with that is that the coach/school has a contract already. So Zion can't wear addidas if Duke is a nike school.

    Well Nike probably isnt going to pay Zion to go to an adidas school.

    It was just an example, and it doesn't have to be about shoes. But in my example, Oregon IS a NIKE school, so no conflict with the school's contract.

    I can see this becoming a problem for building "team". Star QB and RB wearing Rolex and flashing chump change while the 3rd string DB is still shopping at Goodwill.

    This is the most insidious problem. The soul of the very institution of college sports will be damaged.

    The appeal of college sports for me is based on the peculiar constraints unique to them: amateurism, academic burden, limited term of eligibility, etc. Without all of those, it becomes something different and substantially inferior to what it is.

    Heck, most P5 conferences are semi - pro anyway. Just go ahead and split from the NCAA and be done with it. P5 schools can't stand giving G5 schools a few crumbs. P5 conferences are all about the money, not amateur athletics.

    Hate to break it to you, but so are all G5's. Just on a smaller budget and scale.

    No comparison. Most P5's recruiting budgets are bigger than total athletic budgets for G5 schools. I don't see any G5 conferences with their own TV channels. Go check merchandise and royalty income for P5 schools versus G5 schools.

    It was already damaged with the transfer rule in my opinion. There was once a very wise coach that preached the concept of TEAM>me. The transfer rule changed that concept to ME>team.

    There's no way that any Power 5 spends low 8 figures a year on recruiting, even across all sports. Not even close. That's beside the point I guess, but I thought I'd just point that out.

    The fact that college sports makes money, though, doesn't mean it's not amateur athletics. Even most Power 5 football players don't go to the NFL and in basketball an even smaller percentage of college players will ever make a roster. So the NCAA needs to make rules to protect the interests of these athletes and not make rules in the interest of athletes who should be in developmental/semi-pro leagues instead of college.
