I think we will know far more on how this plays out over the next 3 -4 years. It will depend on how schools allow NILs to be used and the big business behind it. In football Michigan State had almost 20 kids transfer in last year. Did they take advantage of the NILs to entice those kids.?? I'm not saying what they did was wrong.4 teams made the CFP at least 4 of 7 years from 15-21 (bama - 6, clemson - 6, tosu - 4, oklahoma - 4). that's 20 out of 28 spots taken by only 4 teams. nearly 3 out of 4 every year for 7 years.
during the first year of NIL, only 1 of them made the CFP. obviously 1 year doesn't make a trend but to say that we're getting top heavy NOW is ignoring most of the last decade.
Another example involves RBY. It sounds like he was denied an opportunity to make some money on a sports drink that was in compition with a Penn State endorsed product. Do all schools deem that situation the same.?
