    NCAA moves closer to allowing athletes to serve as Paid Sponsors.

    If adopted, the rules would allow athletes to make sponsorship and endorsement deals with all kinds of companies and third parties, from car dealerships to concert promoters to pizza shops, according to a person who has reviewed the recommendations. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity Thursday because the details were still being discussed and debated.

    The NCAA would create a mechanism to evaluate potential deals for fair market value and spot possible corruption. An athlete could compromise their eligibility for failing to disclose details of a financial agreement or relationship, the person said.

    All it takes is the NBA getting the best kids to take $500k to skip college and the NCAA has a change of heart

    All NCAA member institutions better plan to triple their Athletics compliance departments.

    I'd imagine the NCAA will have a pretty loose leash on this as every PR battle over player compensation is pretty much a net loss for them as this point. They will likely just ensure that NCAA Images (logos, school jerseys etc.) aren't being used in the endorsements.

    Maybe all NIL discussion will end up here.

    I only see ONE positive about this whole situation, and it's not a strong one. Players can finally get a piece of the enormous financial pie generated by NCAA BBall. Problem is a very small % will benefit. It is not now or ever will be fair, as presently constructed.

    On the other hand, IMO, the negatives are numerous and we're just getting started. This will turn off certain portions of any fanbase...probably to the point of actually losing some fans. Also, in what reality does a select few players get paid, large amounts in some cases, and it not effect the traditional team concept? There will be locker room issues. What about the team that has only 1 "golden boy" getting paid? No chance of that creating any friction, right? Obviously there are going to be some usual "dirty dealings".....won't this simply morph into some form of free agency? NIL, coupled with the immediate transfer situation is a recipe for volatility.

    Look, I have zero issue with a student athlete getting paid for some sort of service. It's the same as getting, say, a fast food job, only for a lot more money in most cases. Now, if kids start getting straight cash payments, things could go south quick.

    The only way I see this working out in the long run, is if most Universities DO NOT ALLOW their NIL to be partnered with player deals. Early indications are that this is not the case, but the bottom line is if fan support/revenue is negatively effected, schools will be forced to make necessary adjustments.

    If Xavier is successful and keeps winning and making the tournament, then I will not care about anything to do with NIL. If Xavier is not successful and fails to make the tournament in most years, then the NIL deal is clearly at fault and it is completely wrong.

    It is that simple. LOL
