I personally think predictions of negative impacts are overstated. Freeing players to make decisions in their own best interest may actually bring more competitive balance to college fb. If you think of 5 star recruits as first round draft picks, college football works exactly opposite NFL. Teams that perform best divy up the top talent. Portal and nil may spread that talent out more widely

Also, even if I am wrong and there are net negative impacts on the game, at least partially addressing the absurdly exploitative system of paying coaches multi millions while insisting those who risk life and limb can not be paid has to be worth it. At least in terms of trustees of these fine institutions being able to look themselves in the mirror

There seems to be a significant correlation among the general population between level of interest in football, and lack of interest in or knowledge of civic affairs and government.

I agree with Lurker that the imbalance between pay for coaches and non-pay for the athletes who earn the coaches their millions is absurd, but I also agree that the current NIL approach is going to produce profound changes for the worse. You cannot take just any medication to cure an ailment.

Sad but true, sparman.

At the risk of sounding too self-congratulatory, ground zero for the small intersection of the Venn diagram of people who are passionate about both football and civic engagement might be the Ivy League Sports Message Board. I wish there were more of us.
