NIL, transfers, NCAA Policies and where do we go from here



  • @Kcmatt7 To be clear, the record set was not for a men’s champ game in general. Only a record for one carried on cable, which has a much smaller sample! Nowhere near the audiences in the broadcast era. Still good.



  • @BeddieKU23 said in NIL, transfers, NCAA Policies and where do we go from here:

    I think the transfer rule should stay but there needs to be a “transfer window” created to control when they can enter and what time period to select a new school. Shouldn’t be a 12 month job for coaches imo to recruit their own and recruit others

    This is a very reasonable concept for a policy.

    If the NCAA would have considered this idea, I can’t imagine how they would have concluded “Nah, let’s just leave it wide open.”

    My point is that the NCAA is unimaginative and ineffective when it comes to policy development. (Note: I’m not talking about policing or enforcement – that’s a different responsibility of the NCAA. But enforcement is dictated by the policies. I see setting policies as their #1 job.)



  • @Kcmatt7 said in NIL, transfers, NCAA Policies and where do we go from here:

    I also like the idea of limiting the number of transfer roster spots allowed or some sort of mechanism that doesn’t allow for 1500 new spots to open up. So, you are free to transfer, but there might not be a scholarship for you waiting on the other side of it. Almost like how football limits you to 25 scholarships per recruiting class. You can have 13 scholarships, but each year you can only add 3 players from the portal. Something like that I think could work.

    This is also a very reasonable concept for a policy.

    I think we are doing NCAA’s work for them.

    I am still not seeing the issues other than the transfer market being crazy.

    Miami paying big bucks for a player is GOOD for the sport. They’ve only made the tournament 11 times in history. They beat out some top tier basketball schools for him. If money wasn’t a thing, Nigel Pack is either back at KSU or somewhere in Indiana.

    NIL is going to let some schools who can get creative compete at a national level. And I don’t think it will decimate mid-majors the way people think. We just saw a 15 seed make an elite eight run. Literally the furthest a 15 seed has gone in the history of the tournament. And the only reason that roster is being decimated is because the coach left.

    While mid-major’s will lose their best players yearly (it is a reality) they also will get to backfill their roster with the Tristan Enaruna’s of the world. A guy with P5 athleticism and experience. There is a give and take.

    I do like the idea of a shorter transfer window.

    No matter what I don’t think it is the end of the sport or the world. This last NC game just set a record for viewers so people are still watching games.

    That’s a good idea. Limit transfers to 3 a year. I would also put a provision in that you can transfer the first time and be immediately eligible, but have to sit out a year with any more transfers you make.





  • @Jethro Any limits on getting players from the portal would have to allow for more if a team has an unusual number of departures, I would think.

    The latter is already the rule. You only get one freebie without a waiver.



  • @BShark geez I can’t take all these kids in.💙🙏😥



  • @BShark That story… woah. Forged in a crucible of despair…



  • I think the transfer portal concept will start balancing out as time goes by (a few years).

    Watch schools like WSU… where they totally missed the early NIL train and now are trying to catch back up.

    There will come the day when an organic balance is reached.

    Meanwhile… try not to think of adding more rules. It is a great concept. It’s basically “free agency” to players every year!

    In the end, it will eventually be good for the player, which will also make it good for the school, which will make it good for the fans, too.



  • Emmert stepping down June 23.

    A good day

    Not to mention the impact COVID and the COVID year are still having on this.



  • Johnny Jockstrap comes in to play QB as a top recruit to one of the four schools allowed to qualify for the CFP. But he surprises everyone by choosing KU instead of Clemson, or gasp, Bama. He gets an 8 million$ deal because you know, the other guy did. JJ is now a very rich freshman and he starts using some of that money to convince $ome friend$ to come to KU. I mean, just hook em up with a bit of cash, who will ever know? Not like he’s a booster living in the KC burbs, he’s a KU football player, an insider obviously. What’s stopping these sorts of shenanigans from happening? I admit, my eyes glaze over whenever they talk about money in sports so I don’t follow it closely. But this whole thing is changing the two college sports we all follow. Transfers? The worst change to college sports maybe ever.



  • Warning *take with a grain of salt Vernon tweet alert

    Vernon posting that Wichita barnstorming event brought in 100k +. He also says there are at least 6 more stops & he’s expecting bigger NIL news to drop for KU coming up



  • I figure Wichita would probably be their busiest event. Probably won’t do $100k at every event.

    Still if this nets $600k and each guy walks away with $60k that’s good money. I have to imagine there will be some creative ways to get guys NIL money with events. I would think that maybe the late night in the phog is an opportunity for that. Would get the ladies bball team some money too…

    I just don’t know where the line in the sand is for where the school can and can’t be involved.



  • @BeddieKU23 I bet he added Remy’s jerseys. After the initial sale, remy sold 2 more I think, to the other bidders. Those are just Remy’s cash. Of course anything they sell of their own belongs just to them.



  • If I had the means, I’d jump on jerseys from Remy, Ochai & McCormack. They gave us some unforgettable moments.

    Honestly, they should be auctioning some of this stuff or donate to schools and other charities that run auctions. I think that’s where they might maximize the revenue (although the donations don’t generate anything for the player.)

    To me this reads like rich people have found away to avoid paying taxes on payments to student athletes… I mean it was obvious this is where this was heading. But this is essentially a non-affiliated endowment specifically to recruit players. Kind of crazy to say out loud



  • Not only is pay to play legal, it’s taxpayer subsidized!



  • Looks like Isaiah Wong of Miami will enter the transfer portal if he doesn’t get more NIL money from Miami, according to The Athletic. Same school that gave Pack $800,000. Wild year.
