Die NCAA schwört den NIL-Kollektiven Treue und stellt die Ermittlungen ein

von NFI Redaktion

The NCAA has virtually been stripped of what little power they had left after the ruling in the Tennessee case last week, announcing on Friday that all investigations into booster-supported collectives or other third parties engaging in NIL deals have been halted. Despite the chaos and misconduct that continues to grow unchecked, it feels like the right move.

Let’s remember the time when states began legalizing marijuana and/or sports gambling: let these pharmacies and casinos operate unhindered. It’s the fault of the federal government/NCAA that the systems are flawed and running on their own. Too much money is being made and there are too many legal hurdles to stop it now, so proceed with caution.

As NIL collectives continue to control college football, the gap between the haves and the have-nots will continue to widen. This hiatus is essentially indefinite as NCAA President Charlie Baker lacks a suitable contingency plan, with his original plan for a antitrust exemption stalled by numerous lawsuits.

“No penalties for behavior in compliance with the injunction” as long as it is in effect, Baker said in a statement to The Associated Press. This informs members of the board’s enforcement direction while ongoing progress towards long-term solutions takes place.

No, Charlie, this is your resignation letter to start fundraising for collectives. Are you pleased that schools have been informed that your official duties are now over? Great.

This doesn’t mean the NCAA is completely powerless. They are glorified event planners who charge exorbitant fees. Even behaviors outside of recruitment and NIL have in some ways been taken over by conferences instead of the NCAA.

The most notable recent example was the sign-stealing scandal involving Jim Harbaugh, with the Big Ten suspending the former Michigan coach, not the NCAA. All Baker and the NCAA need to do is stop trying to maintain this farce and instead help to implement a system that is fair, safe, and sustainable. (This also goes for cannabis shops and sports betting providers.)

There is enough money available to do this right. If people would stop trying to grab as much as possible, everyone could get their fair share and then some.

**Warriors Benefiting from a Focused GM**

The Golden State Warriors have won 11 out of 13 games, with many attributing their success to Draymond Green’s resurgence after suspension. However, this team has real depth thanks to Mike Dunleavy Jr. The Dubs defeated Toronto on Friday night by 120-105, led by Steph Curry with 25 points and Jonathan Kuminga with 24.

As Kuminga and Moses Moody finally develop consistency, the team has stabilized in areas where it otherwise wouldn’t have, while Klay Thompson’s existential crisis continues. New contributors, young and old – Brandin Podziemski, Trayce Jackson-Davis, Dario Saric, and Chris Paul – are making the Warriors demonstrably more dangerous this year.

Call it an advantage of Bob Myers‘ departure. The former GM of Golden State is now in the NFL, spreading his special brand and supporting the Washington Commanders. Hopefully, he places more emphasis on actually doing his job than being a media personality.
