    Funny, if anyone knows about lining pockets with envelopes of cash it’s Gov Newsom.
    Seeing how the FBI has been nosing around the NCAA recently, I'm guessing this put a lid on shenanigans to some extent.

    Thanks for the BTN, Jim. It is a nice channel, and your legacy. (Not to mention adding Nebraska, Maryland, and Rutgers, and creating the championship game .... all in order to keep pace with the SEC)

    I'll be looking forward to the opinion of the new guy.

    But the key difference is that “Pay for NIL” is NOT something the member schools are wanting to pursue. AT ALL. Even the California schools.
    Of course they don't. Everyone is scared to death of letting the air out of the "magic balloon" that is major college football, as it currently stands.

    Gov basically thought we already have some of that.

    Made me think this is similar to the argument to legalize drugs.
    If we legalize it, it would hurt those who are most abusing the current system.
    So those currently cheating would gain less than others who are not.
    No because you will have schools like Oregon with deep pockets who will pay their players more.
