In an interview with Dan Dakich, Urban Meyer discussed his concern with the emergence of NIL collectives - programs not affiliated with universities that provide NIL opportunities for student athletes at specific schools...
“I don’t know,” Meyer said. “I’m not saying it’s all that way, but from my understanding, it’s a fancy word for cheating."
“When I hear that word [collective] I kind of cringe right now and I hear the stories behind it that they’re going to go to donors and boosters and ask for a lot of money and then decide who gets that money based on ability level," Meyer said.
"Which, I think is 1A of the rule of NIL, you can’t do that.”
