Charles Barkley was on 60 Minutes Sunday night. One clip from the interview is already standing out with talking about how players getting paid is ruining college sports...

NIL has a big effect, but it's the free-transfer (without having to sit out a year) that's hugely compounds the problem. The NCAA needs to step up and re-institute the sit-out rule for all transfers, except grad transfers. That would slow down the free-agency every year. If they don't do it soon, the game will be permanently ruined.

Making college kids unrestricted free agents every year they remain in school is laughably stupid. Charles is right.

The whole NIL debacle reminds me of the naive children who rant about how awesome socialism would be if we implemented it. Then, when we actually have a real-life example of how much of a train wreck it is, all we hear is "that's not how NIL is supposed to work!!!" It's like...yeah, you wanted players compensated based on their popularity. How the frick did you think it was going to pan out?

He's dead right. They better straighten this crap out quick or UL, LA Tech, McNeese etc. could be outta sports all together.
