re: "LSU can't compete with _______ in NIL" is a false narrative.

we getting our arse kicked in recruiting in 2022 and 2023


Been saying this. People want to stick their heads in the sand. If and when this turns, it'll be people like me who helped to turn it.

For anyone asking, have donated well over 10k in the last two years. What's your donation? We all need to kick in.

My recruiting strategy is simple. NIL deals with top 12 in our state evert year. You can build a championship on that along.

I hope you’re right. I hate what NIL has done to the sport tho. I just have a very unsettling feeling that this is the end of college football.




It is, the sport formerly known as College Football is going to be professionalized. Players will be sign to play for a school but once playing be considered as paid employees. 1) 85 Scholarship players will be a contractual salary, 2) thee will be a Salary Cap, with certain players getting higher salaries than other (e.g. QB). Think of every player getting a base salary with a differential based on position, level of play. NIL deals will be what goes on in the NFL or other pro sports. Individual athletes will negotiate there own NIL deals, with the help maybe of Advisors working within the Administration. I can see each Athletic Department hiring Sports Attorneys and having lawyers to protect the school. So if a player is not meeting performance goals, can incremental pay be reduced year to year.

The 2 Super leagues will be like the AFC and NFC, with a Commissioner, who enforces the rules that all the Super league schools agree to put in place.

In other words, it will be run like the NFL is run. Players in this super league could in theory unionize. The 9-0 SCOTUS ruling and Judge Kavanaugh' Concurring opinion which talked about Anti-Trust violation and noting the money-making enterprise that college sports has become and nowhere in any other profession can an organization (NCAA) make money off the backs of athletes and no pay them a fair wage

College sports will be still somewhat amateur among D2 and current Group of 5 schools and the current P5 that get left out of the Super Leagues.

1 and 2 go together as #1. You can get an upset win here and there with 3-5, but you can't make the playoffs and definitely not win it all with out #1. No team has won it all without having the best players.


That is true. So if we are all honest, we don't know how LSU will compete in what will become this Super league which will look like the NFL. NFL has its Packers, Patriots, Steelers, Cowboys, 49ers, i.e. teams that have consistently won. MLB has the Yankees, Dodgers, RedSox, etc, etc.

NFL also has the Chargers, Detroit Lions, Falcons, Vikings, etc.

LSU in this new league, like pretty much lets say 32 of 40 might be all like the Falcons, Vikings, etc. USC, Texas, Texas A&M, Ohio State, Notre Dame in the Big10, UGA might be the Packers, Steelers, etc. Alabama with Saban will be fine. But post Saban, Alabama the School nor the State has the money to compete with USC, Ohio State, UT, Texas A&M, Notre Dame or even UGA being in Georgia (18 Fortune 500 Companies). Yes while Fortune 500 companies can't use corporate assets to fund NIL, the employees of those Companies most certainly can.

So unless there is a structure put in place like the NFL with regulations of the Transfer Portal (which is Free Agency), a salary cap for what you can pay your 85 man roster, I can see this Super League having teams like the Cowboys, Steelers, Packers, Patriots in NFL or Yankees, Dodgers, Redsox, Cubs in MLB and a bunch of other teams that in a given year can win it all, but have the ability to win free agency (transfer portal) because of deeper pockets.

This is a marathon and not a sprint. If the deep pockets want to we will get slaughtered.

BK said he has to put a fence around Louisiana. I'll give him a pass on this class since he was late to the party, but things HAVE to change for '24 and '25.

I think those spend8ng hugh money right now are going to have hugh culture issues. The entitlement Era isn't going to deal well with the guy making big bucks to sit on bench. Booster will want to know why their recruit isn't playing. Kids won't stick around if they are not playing. Lots of potential problems outside of getting great talent. What did great talent get us the last few years. Lots of opt outs and quitters. Culture is as important as talent maybe more so

what we've spent on coaches, and buyouts compared to other major programs


And herein lies part of the problem. The same pool of donors have to pay for all of the mistakes made and contracts signed by Mr. Woodward.

You can only dig the hole so big and continue to stay above water with the resources you have.
