The news of Jay Wright retiring came the day after you posted this. He is 60, but looks 45 and has Villanova rollin. He decided to check out. We will find out in the next day or two why...got a feeling it is what you are describing as being the main culprit. He will speak in code and say all the right things, but in reality he is just pulling a Roy Williams(I can't do this anymore... I'm out).
The last thing the NCAA wants to do is police NIL. They're just glad the bagman networks have been legitimized.Earlier someone suggested that there should or would be NIL cash limits. This would not do anything. The competition will drive illicit cash just as it does today, just as it always has. The NCAA is a poor policing body and nobody wants to add more policing to the NCAA's busy agenda.
Yes. The NCAA needs to do something for the good of college sports. Even the pro leagues have salary caps and drafts to try to maintain some level of parity.If the NCAA could see what NIL would do, I doubt they would have changed the transfer rule. The NCAA is not going to touch NIL without Congress' blessing. Too afraid of treble damages in court.
But, they can still control the transfer portal. They should return to the old rule of sitting out a year. No exceptions. Bag men are going to be much less likely to pay 6 figures for a guy that cannot help for another 2 years. It would slow down this insanity and bring back some level of stability to MBB and FB. The schools with the deepest pockets poaching talent from lesser schools with impunity is bad for the sport, whether Iowa is the poacher or the poachee.
