I think Miami is gonna crash & burn on some of their NIL promises.
The more I hear about other schools' NIL the more confident I get about Spyre. We may get outgunned here and there, but I trust Spyre far more than some of these other NIL groups that seem shady.

I can't really back this up with proof, it is simply a sense that I have. The fact that Danny White is at the helm of the AD increases my feelings of security. Tennessee is in just a good of a spot as any in regards to NIL.

True. Just thought that’s a helluva trek for a high school game.
It's an away game. That Hawaii team they are playing also will travel to Las Vegas to play a team there. It happens a lot out here.
St. Louis in Honolulu is always play some west coast power, and other Hawaiian schools have done similar. University of Hawaii should honestly be a stronger program. For the conference they play in anyway.

If I was a good HS player, I would take Hawaii over OSU, Michigan, Penn State , Oklahoma any day. Live in a tropical paradise vs a shithole for 4 years. I don't get it!:oops: If you are truly good enough, the pros will find you! Look how many pros are from small colleges.

It's very strange to me too! I don't know why Hawaii is not better..

Living in Hawaii, unless you're very wealthy, is different from vacationing there - staying in a condo, going to the beach every day, dining in expensive restaurants overlooking the ocean, deep sea fishing, etc. Many parts of Hawaii are like living in the 3rd world.

True, but not where the University of Hawaii is located. Anyway, after living in third world countries for 12 years, I kinda liked it in some ways.

Honestly, most people don't realize just how nice some parts of the third world are. There are countries you would never guess are third world and you can live like a king on a fraction of the price as compared to here. Once you get in your mind that you will have to sacrifice a few cultural comforts... Third world living can be a VERY good living.

Planning on moving to one actually.

I agree with you. Had the time of my life!

PS. However I did live overseas as an expat with a major oil company, so there were allot of perks.

I think you're right, the players don't have to pay for a place to stay or their meals, so that shouldn't really matter. And it costs nothing to go to the beach or go surfing. You would think it would be ideal for a student athlete.

OTOH, it may be difficult for the university to attract good coaches. Everything is so expensive in Hawaii, it may be hard for them to make a living there with whatever the university can afford to pay them.

I remember that we could never keep an oncologist on the Big Island for more than a year, because the doctors quickly discovered that their personal and professional expenses exceeded their medical income. So when a friend of ours was diagnosed with breast cancer, she had to fly to Oahu every time she had an office visit or treatment.
