Yeah, it is bad for all fans of college football. Like the NFL, players will go where he money is, not where their heart may tell them to go.

And its not going to be that slow. Think where we were a year ago when they let the horse out of the barn versus where we are today with schools openly bragging about "charities" paying players tens of thousands a year. Within a couple more years the entire system will no longer exist and we will be irrelevant outside of SC. All a school needs is one super rich booster to funnel 100 million or so a season into its football team and they will win the title every season, unless a dozen schools also have a similarly rich booster, of course. I sense that Clemson has no such booster.

It could backfire when all but a handful of schools/fans/viewers lose interest. When the money stops flowing to those who "count" changes will be made.

100 million a year? Not many of those around!

But exactly how does that fit with NIL. They can’t pay them to play. They have to do something for it.. commercial or something?

Can’t we just sit back and cheer for the team that takes

because our team will struggle to go 8-4 while the million dollar man is giving out millions to players for his school, which isn't us, and we went from winning it all to losing to schools that pay more in NIL dollars. It takes some of the fun out of it on a very uneven playing ground, no doubt. What do you do? Use to be facilities but now it will NIL and somewhat facilities. Kinda sux.
Maybe not 8-4 but ya'll know what I mean....get in the playoffs and get waxed by those others that paid the big $ for the top players. Not many Trevor Lawrence's out there that will go to the school where their heart leads them.

I will buy tickets regardless of the team’s record. Done it before and will do it again. Nothing better than a football game at Clemson.

about it, making not even a pretense of regulating it. Even though it is the VERY thing that they fought tooth and nails against for years, with sanctions, reduced scholarships, even the Death Penalty in the case of SMU.

If even a WHIFF of boosters paying players in any form could be proven, coaches lost jobs, teams had victories expunged, players got eligibility taken away. But now, suddenly, with only an amateur amount of shading, ALL IS FAIR GAME!

Linemen at Texas will now get $50,000 a pop. PER YEAR. So, some other school will shortly up that ante, in an only slightly different form. They will have to. The former "Arms Race" is now a BANK RACE. And, just like I and several others have already pointed out recently, it is one that Clemson ultimately cannot win. We do not have the ammunition or the guns of most of these "Major" programs in that regard. Yes, for the umpteenth time, I know that the money for NIL is not coming from the schools. It comes from businesses who want their brand associated with the players of that school. In other words, the alumni and the fanbases. We don't have us a Phil Knight or a Jeff Bezos.

Just let this sober thought sink in for a moment. If Phil Knight REALLY wanted to, he could kill college football tomorrow. All he would have to do is offer multi-million dollar NIL deals to every player that is willing to sign on the dotted line, and commit to at least 3 years of football at Oregon. There is literally NOTHING, other than his own fancy, to stop him from doing that right now.

These Texas Oilmen banding together to hurl $50,000 a year en masse at offensive linemen is just the first volley in this war.

And the same Congress and court system that pretty much forced NIL down our throats just sits on their collective ar$es now and does nothing to save the greatest amateur team sport of all time. They should all be drawn and quartered. Shame on them.

And how many NFL guys does Clemson have??? The new AD needs to make a plan, get with the for alums in the nfl and boosters with some deep pockets then do our own thing. This doesn’t have to be the end of Clemson in any way shape or form. We just need to take the Bull by the horns instead of crying and letting it run us over

Just tired of people whining about it, we can get deep pockets together as well just need a plan. I can’t speak for every fan, but I know majority including myself would help out anyway needed

Personally I don’t have deep pockets but I would take

Take what I do now and probably try to get tickets for softball, baseball or another sport. Or just double up on my Alumni Association giving.

I really am not interested in throwing a bunch of money at kids that could leave tomorrow and don’t really care about graduating from Clemson.

It will level out, it's new and teams and boosters are seeing how far they can take it, rules and restrictions can't be set until the powers that be see people abuse it and then they will set guidelines and companies will be a little more cautious about how they spend their money, dr pepper has to feel kinda dumb for giving DJ all that money....
