Why would the Saudis do this? At least their investments in golf have a potential financial benefit down the line. What is supporting a public university's basketball team going to do for them?

I don't recall I or anyone else here blaming the athlete.  That's not the freaking point.  I'd be pissed if Kam or if any of our players are/were poached but wouldn't be upset with them.  The current NIL system sucking has nothing to do with how much the NCAA has sucked.   

The tournament alone generates how much in revenue? Can they not distribute far more of this cash to the teams /players?  And add cash opportunities with jersey and likeness stuff?  Paying individual players salaries in the 1-5 million dollar range will not benefit the sport imo.  There needs to be incentives for staying at a particular school or some sort of cap.  The only way this is solvable is if some of the great minds here come up with better solutions.

Huh, are you not a capitalist?

Lots of Scoopers have been capitalists when it comes to their preference for how the U.S. economy should function. Unless the subject is college athletes.

IIRC, hoopaloop/chicos/Cheeks even admitted as much.

Except there is no real evidence that fans are being driven away from college football or college basketball.

And while I agree that conference realignment is greed, I don't think NIL is. The current NIL environment is all about the NCAA and its member school digging in on amateurism until it lost control of its own destiny. The fact is many college athletes had values greater than their scholarships, and now we are living in an environment where they are allowed to max out those values.

And honestly good for them. There has been a lot of money flowing around intercollegiate athletics for years and it has mostly been used to build fancy new buildings and enrich the coaches and administrators in charge. So I am not going to hand-wring about Jonas Aidoo getting $1.4 million.  I have no idea if its sustainable or not. That's not my problem. It certainly isn't Jonas' problem. Grab that bag! Be smart with it. You will have a jump start on life that 99% of people your age won't have.

So don't blame the players because the adults in charge were unwilling to change. If everyone could go back a decade, the path would be easy. But a lot of people were paid a lot of money to be "in charge" of something. And they ended up REALLY bad at it.

I don't blame the players at all. I just don't see how Marquette will be able to compete at the elite level and win Championships, and especially if the NCAA will pay out of basketball revenues any antitrust settlement. In the end it probably won't matter as the NCAAT will be gone as we know it after 2032 when the network contracts expire.
