There is no question Emmert was Saban's bag boy. Good riddance, don't let the door hit you on the way out!
Our 2023 recruiting class is starting to look really good (fingers crossed, I know its way early). Hoping that bammer is no longer no. 1 in recruiting EVERY SINGLE ****ING YEAR. Will be good for Vols and rest of SEC, and heck, college football in general.
Opinions differ as to whether NIL will level the playing field or do the opposite, but the most credible scenario I have heard is that for schools with the resources, it will improve their lot. In other words, some schools will remain weak, some will get stronger. UT very likely to be in the "stronger" category.
As for the handful of schools currently at the top, being UA, uga, OSU and Clemson, Clemson is thought to perhaps lose the most in the NIL era. I guess we will find out.
My thought is that since UT absolutely has the resources, and has already demonstrated a willingness to use them, NIL is going to be a net plus for us.
