Sickening. Dagger in the heart of college sports.

A million questions if this goes through, but it's the death knell of amateur sports and everything we love about them. We are now officially monetizing college athletes and turning them into the "All About Me" players that we see in the professional ranks. Recruiting becomes a pure bidding war, with 18-year-olds chasing the bag instead of an education. Think of the dynamic that a "pay for performance" culture creates within a team...will we have incentive structures based on points/goals scored, scoring at track meets, etc.?

I realize that NIL was the camel's nose under the tent, but putting coaches instead of the market in charge of paying athletes is a whole different animal.
