Alabama head coach Nick Saban doesn't like how the new NIL deals are basically corrupting college football. Ummm...becauuuuse....college football wasn't already corrupt? Sorry coach, I'm confused here.Per Associated Press...
“The concept of name, image and likeness was for players to be able to use their name, image and likeness to create opportunities for themselves. That’s what it was,” Saban said. “So last year on our team, our guys probably made as much or more than anybody in the country.”
“But that creates a situation where you can basically buy players,” Saban said. “You can do it in recruiting. I mean, if that’s what we want college football to be, I don’t know. And you can also get players to get in the transfer portal to see if they can get more someplace else than they can get at your place.”
