IMO, Cambridge is not a fair case to judge. My understanding is her family has a major bug up the butt about UT, said it from Day 1, continues to say it and means it. No rapport ever to be built.
I mean, we can continue to use this excuse for every big name recruit that won't give Kellie the time of day. At some point, it comes down to results...

Exactly so she was at UCONN already beforer the first preseason game is when the commercial was put out .
So she was already enrolled as a student at UConn? I don't think NIL has to coincide with the start of the season. I'm sure Haley Cavinder also had a bunch of NIL deals lined up before she played her next game after the rule went into effect

On recruiting, appears that the program lacks self awareness of who wants to be a Lady Vol. Past is the past. May have to consider signing a mix of players yet to reach their ceiling and some portal transfers. Striking out on elites and signing a full class of portal transfers is playing with fire. Add an elite when you can but so far not happening.

States like IN they would not, states like CA you can profit with colleges the day you sign your NLI with the school of choice.
*just a minute addendum, in certain states you would become ineligible to play immediately upon receiving an NIL payment. So as I understand it a senior player in IN could accept $ the day after their final game and be fine.

I'll probably continue to use this excuse for recruits whose families have some deep and abiding irrational hatred towards the whole institution. I'm sure there will be plenty of other recruits who won't give us the time of day. We can judge results from them.

I think they thought they could be a bit more choosy with the 23 class than they turned out to be. High on their own supply from the portal success. It will be interesting to see how far down the food chain they have to go to get someone signed for 24.

Recruiting in the portal era is brand new, everyone is still learning. But the LVs do need to get some significant gains while learning.

Not play immediately, but you can receive NIL in certain states now as HS kid. Below is a list of states.
High School NIL: State-by-state regulations for name, image and likeness rights - Opendorse
Thanks for the link. I'd wager that almost all the states will acquiesce in the next couple of years or they will lose the same lawsuit that the NCAA did. However, it is much trickier to sue governmental entities. Someone would probably have to accept $, be declared ineligible, and then sue the state. Kind of like volunteering for the firing squad and only future athletes will benefit.

state rights to set rules in school were schools are not making a lot of money off said players. i see state rights best change in court case. players in states in those states will have to wait till after highschools over or miss games . tenn has high school players geting money right?

When football is successful it makes more money so this investment in Heupel should more than pay for itself. It should help, not hurt the other programs.

Recruiting in women's basketball is only going to get back to the top with a super NIL program for recruits. With SC and a few other schools having guaranteed 25 grand for every player Tennessee is going to need to match that at least or exceed it . I see more and more what looks like shady dealings in women's basketball just now catching up to football and men's basketball. You have to be a player no other solution.

No there is not and it has never been announced what any particular team member is getting. SC announced everyone on their team is getting 25K
