Question for those of you that graduated from college (ha).. While your were in college... was there any limit to what someone could pay you to work at their snowball stand?

If you were on a band scholarship, or maybe a cheer leader, not a player... (funny).. Maybe on a physics scholarship (also funny).. Could you switch schools without repercussion? If you sang opera, or were in the theater...and switched schools... Did you have to sit out a year?

I dunno what question you’re really asking but I was on the T&F team at Southeastern back in 2010. We weren’t even allowed to hold a job while on scholarship because of the fear of being paid more.

I did have a few jobs as a bouncer because it was all under the table in cash though.

How do you not know the answers to these questions? I assume you never went to college.

Maybe Google Rhett Bomar at Oklahoma and the “job” he had at a car dealership to see why rules are placed around jobs pre NIL era

Yes. NIL is representative of Free Enterprise/Capitalism. And yes, as normal every day student, I could do all of those things you so cleverly disguised as an example of what NIL is all about.

Now, tell us how college athletes are normal every day students like I was.

And now is the part where you assume I am against NIL. I will save you the misinterpretation. I am in favor of it. Imagine that. Someone who can agree with something while at the same time seeing that its not a black and white issue.

If I understand your question correctly, there were no limits on outside income or transfers for non-athletes. Had friends that made some pretty decent money in their engineering co-ops.
