I figure it would be nice to have a place where we can post some of the good and crazy deals that players are getting.

Master P's son a freshman hoops player at Tennessee State has signed 2 million dollar deal with a tech site with less than 100 likes. That is weird and fishy.

The ole Miss qb just announced that you can have him 10,000 an hour for an appearance or to work at a camp.

All this leads me to wonder if the OSU fan day for football is history.

Local cheap one camps for the kids are gonna be a thing of the past.

I would assume some of the marketing is still required for the players - which would probably include fan day. Now the days of seeing the starting QB travel all over the state for FCA meetings is probably gone. Just my .02

Spencer Rattler signed an endorsement deal with Raising Canes and has a website selling his merchandise.

A university of Miami alum just announced he is going to pay every player on the team $500 a month to endorse his gyms.

I don't like this at all. It's going to turn into who can pay the most for a players services.

Florida company to offer $540K worth of NIL deals to all Miami scholarship football players

The name, image and likeness era of college athletics is not even a week old, and we’ve already seen some significant deals struck. One that emerged out of the University of Miami on Tuesday falls into that category, especially for its unique — and lucrative — structure.

American Top Team, a South Florida-based MMA training company, has finalized its plans to offer NIL contracts to every scholarship football player for the Hurricanes. CaneSport.com first reported the deal, which is for all 90 of Miami’s current scholarship players.

Per CaneSport, the Miami Rivals.com affiliate, the players will be offered a $500 per month contract worth up to $6,000 per year to “endorse American Top Team through their social media accounts, personal appearances and other marketing vehicles.” If all 90 players were to accept the offer, the total investment from American Top Team would be in the range of $540,000.

I wonder if AJ Ferrari got that same deal. He just posted about spending some time at ATT, pictures with the owners and some fighters

When do we see the dark side of all this? Kids already have academic tutors and specialists to help make sure they stay up with their classes. Now add in social media campaigns, personal appearances, etc..., on top of their classes, training, practices, travel, and games. What suffers first? Contracts are going to potentially interfere with school stuff. Yet, scholarships are a type of contract as well. I have a feeling there will be push back from the schools at some point and this will have to be refined.

How can the schools push back? They won't rip a scholly from a star player, they'll find a way to get them to pass..

There will be a female athlete that decides that she can a killing as cam girl. The fallout from that will be fun to watch.
Morality clauses and athlete scholarship contracts. Especially if they try to use the school's name, colors, or mascot, etc... in relation to their "work".

You guys laughed when WVU lost 2 future NFL players off its defense to UGA and Auburn, but the NIL is going to make it very, very hard for teams like WVU, Oklahoma State, TCU, etc to hold on to elite players.

When teams like Texas, Ohio State, and others can actually pay them six or seven figure salaries to play college ball.

So, you recruit a diamond in the rough, develop him into an All American, and then a SEC big boy comes calling with a brinks truck.
