re: Post-Transfer/Draft ESPN College Basketball Preseason Top 25 - volfan30
The Auburn backcourt will be very interesting to watch. When they are bad they are comically atrocious and single-handedly lose games, but they can go through stretches where they get confidence and are one of the most impressive groups in the country that could outplay the Warriors for 5-6 minutes ...

[quote]only players eligible to participate in NCAA sports and sign NIL deals are 1 year removed from highschool[/quote] Not legal. I 100% agree that would be a good rule for the good of the sport but not legally possible to keep someone from capitalizing on their name, image and likeness earn...

re: 1 National Football Only Super League with a recruiting salary cap. - volfan30
Ok I’m not arguing that at all. :lol: Just not following how it impacts the legality of the compensation system for P5 football players. The only reason the current system is in place is because the players challenged the legality of the previous system....

re: 1 National Football Only Super League with a recruiting salary cap. - volfan30
Rules that are collectively bargained. Even the USFL players unionized. The fans had a system they were happy with and it was a system all the schools were more than happy with. Everyone was making tons and tons of money except the players and SCOTUS struck it down pretty emphatically. When ...

re: 1 National Football Only Super League with a recruiting salary cap. - volfan30
Not sure I’m following. Fans “controlling” sports doesn’t impact the way the laws are written. Salary caps without unionization would be an illegal infringement on commerce if all the employees in question didn’t agree to them. Obviously the top players would have no incentive to agree to it. If ...

re: 1 National Football Only Super League with a recruiting salary cap. - volfan30
No salary cap is possible unless the players unionize and a salary cap is collectively bargained. What incentive do the players have to unionize at this point? The current system where it’s entirely free market seems to be more player friendly than a unionized collectively bargained system would...

re: The Braves are playing out of their minds. - volfan30
Barves lost a game yesterday where the Cubs had a .090 xBA and today lost a game by 3 runs where their xBA was almost 100 points higher than the Cubs. Pretty hilarious series so far....

re: Does anyone else feel college baseball is far superior product to MLB? - volfan30
The pitching and umpiring make college baseball close to unwatchable for me. I don’t think I would ever choose watching a Tennessee game over a Braves game. One thing both levels have in common, at least for me, is that I have a very difficult time watching games that don’t involve my team....
