This NIL stuff continues to be mind blowing. 4-star quarterback Jaden Rashada announced his commitment to Miami on Sunday for a reported $9.5 million and supposedly turned down an $11 million offer to be a Florida Gator.
For the sake of college football, I hope this information is false, but here is the Link to article here:

is inaccurate as it relates to Jaden Rashada.I have never spoken to Mr. Caspino about Jaden Rashada. Mr. Caspino and I spoke about an unrelated player months ago and had a very professional and pleasant conversation. I respect him.
see that within a few years after multiple instances of these high paid recruits failing to live up to the hype at the college level that this NIL insanity will calm down a bit.
To pay ANY high school recruit (that includes the Manning kid too) $millions before they have stepped onto the big boy college football field is simply stupid. People that shell out $millions expect quick results and as they start to see that most true college freshman won't perform to these overly hyped expectations (if they even see the field at all) I gotta feeling this kind of stupid spending will slow down.
This kind of insane NIL money would be better spent on keeping proven quality players already on a teams roster.
Does anyone suspect that there are 'voidable' clauses in NIL contract?
Heck, most business contracts have clauses which, in the event of 'non-performance' by one party, the other party gets to void the contract.
Very commonly, the 'other party' which wished to void the contract ends up paying a small sum to the 'non-performing' party to avoid going to court.
Do any of you suspect (or better yet, know) of NIL contracts which can be voided in the event of 'non-performance' of the player?
If (really, this is a 'when') the sponsor of a NIL deal sees that the paid athlete isn't performing to the degree needed to ah, er, em ... represent the sponsor adequately, then there are going to be athletes that 'get fired' from their NIL deal.
Either way Miami fans are very weak period, I had a business in South Florida, they don’t all love Miami and support them in all areas.
If they are a top team they might fill the stadium that isn’t theirs once or twice with a population in south Florida that’s more than North & South Carolina combined. The second they lose a game they all fade away.
Miami has a lot of rich people who will throw some money for quick results but if it’s not quick they will stop funding them. They don’t have an Iptay period and never will.
The pressure of making money for performance for a 17-19 year old kid will be their downfall at the U when it isn’t as easy as buying a championship.
