Former Alabama head coach Nick Saban is scheduled to appear before Congress on Tuesday as part of Texas senator Ted Cruz's roundtable that will focus on NIL and its impact on college sports...
quote:

"I'm confident that this legislative draft represents the best path forward to codifying NIL rights for student-athletes, providing national uniformity for college sports with as little government interference as possible, and preserving college sports as we know it," Cruz said in a statement accompanying his draft.

LSU develops players - mainly QBs, WRs abd DBs. Bama pays players. Big difference. Underwood did not choose LSU for the money. He could have gotten paid more at 10 other places. He wants to be developed like Jayden.

Saban: "All the things that I believed in, for all these years — 50 years of coaching — no longer exists in college athletics."

He's talking about paying players without fear of NCAA violations, while being able to sic the NCAA on anyone else who tries to do the same thing.

That's the college athletics he's pining for.

Nick Saban seriously talked about his concern for competitive balance during the NIL era. It's not like he vacuumed up huge majority of the top high school talent for years leading to an insane competitive advantage over literally everyone.

Let’s call a spade a spade NIL is the best thing to happen to athletes getting a piece of the action . Transfer rule, tampering , free agency needs to stop .

I watched a six minute clip of it. He made a lot of sense.

Just change the transfer rule back, especially seeing as how it was supposed to be temporary. That would do a lot of good.

Cruz, your state has a border crisis. Stop worrying about NIL money.

I think the winners should now be called the national NIL Champions. It is not college football anymore!

I called it way back when: NIL will be/has been the ruination of college sports. The end of innocence.

This is not some sort of novel observation. The writing was on the wall for many.

College ball was so much better when players got paid under the table and had to risk eligibility yet everyone pretended they were amateurs even though they generate billions of dollars for mostly public institutions with large scale endowments and operating budgets.

I hope Kennedy asks him about Chargers and Chllengers, long before NIL. They used to get a bulk rate on those. NIL came along, the Gumps quit buying them, and Chrysler had to quit making them.

Good idea! Perhaps he should also broach the subject of stealing funds from pediatric hospitals for use in athletics. Can't wait to watch that session.
