I think the NIL benefits MU players. I do not think it benefits as a whole non-football schools like MU.

I actually think it might be okay for non football schools. On our local talk radio, they were whining about all the NIL money thrown at U of Miami players with no results. With such a large group of players, they either have to appease all or have issues internally. Plus that leaves less NIL money for the basketball players. And what if the star basketball player gets less than a mediocre football player?
Schools that only have BB can focus on getting NIL money to the players equitably and maybe focus on special deals on star players like the Kolek shirt.

Not sure I am right, but can make sense. Keeping 13 players happy versus 85 + 13 is a challenge even for big money schools.

I hope you are right. I worry that a good player will be poached from us. Just like it is rumored Michigan is trying to lure Wisconsin football running back. I am sure UW can come up with very good NIL money for Allen, but I believe Michigan is able to come up with more. What gives me confidence is that it appears players really like playing for Shaka.

Agreed Bilsu. As this program progresses one of the main things that could derail the whole thing would be NIL money.  And that is why Shaka is so vital. Through his relationships with the players, the allotment of playing time (playing up to ten players a game for significant minutes) and over signing, I think he is insulating himself from this issue.

But, if the next Wade comes through the program, alums better be willing to pony up or we will lose the next one.  My hope is Shaka makes MU such a household name with recruits and alumni will be so energized that leaving will not be likely in a couple years.

I’ve heard Allen made a pretty penny this year.

That's weird.  You're the guy who brought up the previous regime in your post.  If I'm "mostly wrong" as a guy who got banned here due to harping, repeatedly that Wojo sucked as a coach and would be a bust, starting 10 games into his career - not sure what that makes you as a poster who constantly argued against my take, and being a staunch Wojo backer for roughly 5 years?

Weird you'd want to keep bringing Wojo into conversations.  But.  Congrats?!!

You're STILL harping about Wojo. You're good fun, Ners.

The maestro had a media availability.   
Luke 6:45   ...A good man produces goodness from the good in his heart; an evil man produces evil out of his store of evil.   Each man speaks from his heart's abundance...

It is better to be fearless and cheerful than cheerless and fearful.

I wonder what would happen if the Maestro were to meet the Wizard!

Quite possibly they have met, hence him being the wizard.
