I'm gonna take the other side for argument's sake. Why not have rules on the field and just let everyone do whatever they want off of it? Murca, free enterprise, and all that stuff. If you can't hang with the big boys, get out of the arena. Noting illegal, of course, but other than that, anything goes.NIL “Now It’s Legal”. As much as we don’t like the NCAA tactics, there is a need for rules enforcement and punishment going downstream. What is that gonna look like?
Let’s say they make a college football general manager like the NFL, What if they put the old Bama grandad GOAT Nick Saban in that position. My analogy is Kirk Herbstreit calling an Ohio State came. He’s neutral, right?
For college football care needs to be taken at this point to get it right. It’s like the founding fathers after the revolutionary war. Whatever path is forged, we will be stuck with it for a long time. NCAA had a needed purpose. Their justice wasn’t consistent though and here we are.
