    Are there any tampering rules? I guess the way things have been going, anything goes. SMH

    It looks like USC is going to get him and they have not won many games lately. The Gators were actually better than them last year as they were 4-8.

    I agree with you and believe that with CBN there is a chance with lots of student athletes

    Here though a guy from Pitt could play for Lincoln Riley in a pass happy offense in LA, home to starlets, the music industry, a coach with a proven track record of getting a team in the CFP and a stellar name university.

    AND TAMPERING.

    We can’t compete with deals like this. Sad day for college football. But hey, go NIL! Woo! (Sarcasm)

    Sad but true. This coupled with the NIL disaster has caused my enthusiasm to wane for the only level of sports that I care to even watch anymore.

    That Texas was offering multi million dollars. But also looks like it may of been a troll. I don’t twitter well. My apologies.

    There has to be some structure in place for NIL. The players aren't being paid for their NIL, and we all know it. I agree with the legal reasoning that held that companies couldn't profit off a Player's NIL without compensating him. That was clearly wrong, but what we have now--with no rules in place--is a complete joke.

    Good players are smart to get in the portal this season and grab some cash, no way it stays this way.

    Hate to say it but if I was Richardson I would have done it. At least make UF pony up cash to keep me (which we may have done).

    Oh it’s coming soon. Maybe not Richardson but it will bite us eventually.

    Why would players agree to "structure"?

    What about "structure" for others making money?!? Like a $500K cap on coaching salaries.
