About rough ridin' time. Had to get Myers outta rough ridin' here and to get bullied by ESPN to do some crap we should have been doing years ago.

The NCAA started allowing this 2 years ago and the Supreme Court ruling was last year. We got exposed, that's why this is being announced now. We didn't announce details of what we're doing, hopefully won't be the bullshit that flood aggie is doing.

What's Flood Aggie doing?

Pretty similar to what Houstoncat posted, but instead of holding 75% for graduation, like we are, they hold the entire thing. I hate it, I hate holding any of it.

The incentive is the money, there shouldn't be any additional incentive to graduate, and frankly it won't be an incentive, it's just a way to be cheap assholes. If an athlete is an academic all-American for two years, then as a junior in their given sport, they get the opportunity to compete as a professional who really thinks the $13,000 that the AD is holding us going to be an incentive for anything? If anything it provides other schools to use that as a negative talking point in recruiting. We were just in a recruiting battle with Stanford, and lost, for Mudia Reuben. Do we really want schools like Stanford to tell recruits that we want to pressure good students to stay in school other than pursuing professional opportunities when the time comes?

They are holding all the bonus money until a student graduates.

The Athletic has a good article on A&M and how NIL is working.  There's a summary quote about NIL.
                                                                                                                                                                                                 
According to some of the athletic department’s fundraisers, the money didn’t really start rolling in for the capital campaign until it became apparent that Texas A&M was putting together the No. 1 recruiting class for the class of 2022. That’s what the group finds hilarious. The outside world thought NIL money alone bought Texas A&M a recruiting class. In reality, that class probably bought the Aggies a new indoor facility.

“If people were mad about Texas A&M and NIL before, wait until they hear about $88 million raised,” Bjork told the donors. “Wait until they hear about $235 million in facilities.”

This is what I have been saying for the last 20 years.  This is a great article by Ubben.

NIL and that playyaar money are here to stay and it's getting bigger with time.

As I have been saying, NIL collectives are boosters giving money that is no, no with the NCAA.

Pony Up, Bitches! We should set a goal of $1.0MM per Player. This is essentially, the team themselves creating a collective for every player. Fans can buy an all-access pass and there will be engagement opportunities with the team and proceeds go to the team and divided evenly amongst each player.
