Question about this whole NIL lifestyle of College ball.

With players being able to make some money off of their likeness do you guys think we will see a slight increase of kids returning for their senior season? I'm talking more so about the guys who are a projected 3rd rounder. They are now able to step back and think that they can come back to college ball to increase their draft stock and still make a decent amount of money in the process. Of course the aspect of injury may be in their minds. Maybe I'm being optimistic but I don't see this whole idea of paying athletes being a doomsday to College Football, of course I could be wrong.

    No, they'll make much more with an NFL contract.

    Yes. More could possibly stay . Only 250 are drafted each year…..more than that are making horrible decisions and leaving early out of desperation. A little money in college should help some to stay in school a little longer.

    texdawg I hope you are correct. Most of the taxi squad players do not get life changing money. Especially when you add in the value of another year toward graduation. The 2020 players that come to mind are Richard LeCounte III and DJ Daniel. Without knowing their personal situations, it seemed to me that they bot made a very bad decision. I think that they each left life changing money on the table by going after a injury filled year.

    Curious on how many businesses are willing to alienate fans of other teams by 'endorsing' certain players, like Milo Tea has done with Bo Nix.

    I suppose. I know a lot of Bama fans got riled up about the Milo Tea. But, yeah, I can see it no worse than the Pros.
