So I went to see there reaction on Todd bates and stumbled onto something interesting. They have a credible source that said uga offered Caleb Williams a 1-2 million dollar nil deal to come play for them. I don’t think a school can offer a deal, but that’s the just of it. Said that he is gone after the championship game. If it actually comes true there is a major problem there.
If the NIL continues to go essentially unabated with no caps or limitations it will eventually reduce college football to whoever raises the most money wins a championship. I hope that at some point soon that either the NCAA or (dare I say it) the Feds step in and make this whole NIL thing a level playing field because it ain't right now.
Until then, all I can do as a spectator is vote with my own dollars and viewing habits. As College football gets closer to being a "money buys the best team" sport I will probably drop out of the whole darn thing. The last thing I'm going to do is give my money to an athletic scholarship fund that provides a free education to athletes making more money than I do...
Schools cant offer these deals but lets not kid ourselves...they have a hand in it, its just who the actual facilitator is. I'd be shocked to see him leave since Jeff Lebby is coming in to lead OU's offense but thats a lot of money and good for the kid if that's the case.
I hate to believe internet chatter...but nothing surprises me anymore.
