The bigger schools will benefit more than the smaller schools sure, but more importantly the players will benefit.

Which players? Only the ones that go to top resource schools.  It creates an entirely unfair playing field which encourages boosters, cheating etc but now in a “legal” manner.   This disproportionately “helps” only certain players who are more marketable because of their rankings.  Kids will be playing  schools  against ea h other for the best “agent” aka school.  From minute 1, you are seeing a UK player benefitting, as well as the Indiana’s etc.  That should tell you something.  Fool’s gold.  It wil ruin the sport.  Might as well start working with MSG and Body armor to get some too 100 recruits contracts? Smh..

This rule was not done to create a competitively balanced landscape. Which by the way has never existed anyway. It was done to allow kids to make money off their skills. And the better you are at those skills the more money you stand to make. 

I don’t think if it’s a perfect rule but if an 18 year old kid can get a Porsche cause he’s really good at basketball then I don’t think fans have a right to complain about it. I know I’d take the car.

From Front Office Sports today-

With college basketball tip-off in less than a month, coaches covered the usual topics at Big East Media Day: preseason polls, practice, and who’s on their starting rosters. But there’s another area of focus for the upcoming season that coaches now have to navigate: NIL. Their duties extend beyond the hardwood — they now have to help develop players’ business acumen and make sure NIL doesn’t throw a wrench in team culture.Some Big East coaches are taking on an active role in athletes’ endeavors, while others would rather ignore it altogether. But NIL is going to be a part of every college basketball locker room one way or another.

Diverging NIL PerspectivesAt St. John’s, the athletic department set up deals for every single athlete with FitBiomics, a probiotic company founded by a former Red Storm athlete. “All our guys will be involved in it,” men’s coach Mike Anderson said. “It’s great when you have alumni come back and they can put those kinds of deals together for us.”At UConn, one of the winningest coaches of all time — who undoubtedly knows how to manage a locker room — seems utterly uninterested in NIL altogether. “I don’t ever talk to my players about it,” women’s coach Geno Auriemma said. “I could care less about it. … They all have agents. They all have their people.” Auriemma even suggested that athletes should only do deals during the summer and offseason. He said coaches don’t take time out of the season to go on recruiting trips. There is a potential problem with that approach. Athletes’ marketability is highest during the season, when they’re on their biggest stage. Auriemma could be discouraging athletes from doing deals when they could make the most money.

NIL Wealth Management Once athletes sign deals, the job isn’t over. They have to figure out what to do with their newfound profits. How much do they save? What legal obligations come with their revenue? Multiple coaches explained how advising players on personal finance is now just as much their obligation as advising on a pick-and-roll.“I always talk to the guys at the end of their [college] career when they’re in the NBA about taking care of their money,” Villanova men’s coach Jay Wright said. “Now, I’m talking to them when they’re freshmen.” Wright has gone beyond just giving his own counseling, however. Villanova has arranged conversations between players and families and accountants on everything from personal savings to tax obligations.“It’s part of coaching now, having that network set up,” Wright said.Georgetown men’s coach Patrick Ewing — the NBA Hall of Famer with a net worth of  $75 million  — put a specific emphasis on teaching athletes how to save enough of their profits to pay taxes.“Uncle Sam and I have been partners since 1985 — so I’m very aware of that,” he said.

Locker Room DistractionsWright said he hasn’t seen NIL negatively impact team chemistry yet, but he is “monitoring” how his players talk about deals — and whether resentments are festering.He’s showing athletes who’ve already signed multiple deals how to “handle financial success”  and teaching “patience” to younger players who may feel “entitled” to instant NIL profit. “This is the business world,” he said. “This is supply and demand.”The only time Auriemma talks to players about NIL is because of his big fear: NIL becoming a distraction. “I just get involved if and when I think it’s interfering with what we’re trying to do,” he said.He gave an example of a company asking to meet with a player while on the road for a game. “Get the hell out of here,” Auriemma said. “Are you out of your mind?”Coaches are used to navigating the tension of players competing for starting spots. But will navigating NIL competition, where money is on the line, get a little dicier?

Did Auriemma know he was speaking out loud?

I think he forgot that money also talks, possibly louder than Geno

Yes it will help the stars and the big programs more than the smaller ones, especially those with rabid fan bases, huge donors, large endowments (signifying donors with deep pockets) and lack of competition from pro sports.  However it benefit the kids, even at smaller programs.  Might not get a deal that includes a Porsche, but if they can get $10K out of it, it is $10K more than they would have received under the old system.

And its been the haves vs the have-nots for quite some time.  Programs will have to adapt.

The US Supreme Court essentially legalized what Jim B and Syracuse have been doing for decades with "local businesses" and student athletes. The downtown Boys Club and affiliated businesses in Syracuse shoveled dollars into the pockets of the kids. I got it directly from Rodney, the street hustler agent from Foster Park in Bklyn. He profited off the kids too.

From The Athletic today

Illinois big man Kofi Cockburn will miss the first three games of the 2021-22 season due to an NCAA suspension pertaining to name, image and likeness legislation.The suspension is required as part of a reinstatement process because Cockburn sold institutionally issued apparel and memorabilia in June. The transactions would have been permissible if they had happened after July 1, which is when the state of Illinois and the NCAA put new NIL laws into place.

Cockburn will miss the season opener vs. Jackson State on Nov. 9, a matchup with Arkansas State on Nov. 12 and the Gavitt Tipoff Games at Marquette on Nov. 15. He can return for Illinois' Hall of Fame Classic on Nov. 22 against Cincinnati. He is allowed to continue practicing with the team during the suspension.

"We are disappointed with the three-game suspension, because there were unprecedented factors and altered timelines related to his decision to ultimately withdraw from the NBA Draft and return to school," Illinois head coach Brad Underwood said in a statement."Once Kofi had a full understanding of where he stood regarding the draft, he made an educated decision to return to school, work toward his degree, and continue improving his game." Underwood added that Cockburn’s attitude remains "upbeat and positive" and is "focused on helping his teammates prepare for the season."On July 1,

Cockburn entered the transfer portal while also keeping his name in the 2021 NBA Draft. He withdrew his name from the draft on July 6 and then 15 days after entering the portal, Cockburn announced he was returning to Illinois for his junior campaign.
