The NCAA has now released their new NIL guidance

and a lot of schools are going to be found in violation (Miami, Texas, Aggie, USC, Tenn, Florida, Oregon, Alabama, Georgia, Mich St etc).

IMHO multiple lawsuits will be filed in the next 48 hours and the NCAA will be found to be in violation of anti-trust laws and the member schools will be forced to pay players a significant amount (~50%) of revenues that schools generate.

This is potentially good news for CU fans, as college football will be completely restructured from what it has been for the last 20 years. CU will now be forced to compete for talent by paying players instead of using booster (TV and Ticket Sales, etc) money for things other than football.

CU won't end up in the super league, but neither will UCLA, Cal, Stanford, Washington, Utah, Arizona, Az St, so they will be in good company.

The last 20 years have been absolutely miserable for Buff fans, so I think any change can only be welcomed at this point. It took this NIL stuff to finally blow up the system. Cheer up Buff fans, this has the potential to get a lot better and really can't get any worse than it has been.
