Ross Dellenger of Yahoo Sports wrote this week about the struggles that coaches and schools face at the Group of Five level regarding name, image, and likeness (NIL).

One of the most significant issues that G5 coaches deal with is retaining players and keeping them from transfering to power five schools with more money to spend on NIL. An example is Jamey Chadwell's Liberty team:

Chadwell’s Liberty team capped an undefeated regular season with a Conference-USA title and a trip to the Fiesta Bowl only to then lose three of his top returning players: a defensive tackle (Duke), cornerback (Oregon State) and receiver (LSU).

“Those guys would be all-conference for us,” Chadwell said. “LSU paid for a car and an apartment and like $300,000. What do you do?”
Daniels, a 6-1, 195-pound receiver from Lilburn, Ga., caught 55 passes for 1,067 yards and ten touchdowns last season. He announced his transfer to LSU on January 14.

Surely Chadwell is aware of the speculations about him.

Funny to hear Chadwell, crying about losing players to Larger Power 5 schools, when he’s one of THE highest paid Coaches in the CUSA Conference? And where his current Employer (Liberty) has a huge advantage over many due to their Religious fundraising advantages (tax free) over many! Stop complaining and crying and Coach up your team…

The money is now all above board. The complaints about NIL are missing the mark - your problem is with the transfer portal.

The portal is a far bigger issue than the NIL.

Only good thing about the NIL is it ran Nick Saban off.

Can't wait until Elon Musk really starts backing his college teams (Penn). They'll be champs every year!

I said this when all this NIL chatter started if the IVY League boys start getting in involved we will see a change back to the days when they ruled college football

Gross. I realize we’ve got to do it to win while it’s legal, but we need to ban NIL. College players should not be paid.

It sucks, and every team was doing it under the table. Some more than others were better at it

Hell, Bama was getting away with it by offering cars to the recruits.

NIL allows for more level among the big schools .

Still got a ways to go for schools like Liberty.

They need mega donors

Chadwell needs to find a new slant.

CJ is earning every penny of the $300k NIL deal from “Our Lady of the Lake” and the Hospital benefits from us true Tiger fans choosing to go their Emergency Room over the Emergency Rooms at Oschner and Baton Rouge General that can’t bother to rally behind our beloved Purple and Gold.

I call it win, win, and win.

Isn’t that what NIL is for? They get paid to play.

No, it is not supposed to be “pay for play”…although that is what it has become.

Some children will not get their medical care paid for, but that's a sacrifice LSU is willing to make.
