New NIL Discussion
This is copied from an ESPN article. Note the last sentence regarding loose guidelines by the NCAA. More unenforceable pretend to monitor? Seems like more room for the sacred list to get away with buying players the rest get penalized.


“Plans to vote on a detailed, prescriptive proposal were derailed (for the second time) in June by a landmark opinion delivered by the Supreme Court. The justices ruled that the NCAA should no longer be granted the considerable leeway it previously enjoyed in avoiding antitrust laws while restricting the earnings of college athletes. While that case was not related to NIL opportunities, it serves as a threat that any blanket NIL restrictions the NCAA wanted to place on its member schools could be challenged -- and likely wouldn't stand up -- in federal court.

In the weeks leading up to the Supreme Court decision, several high-profile conference commissioners were gathering support for a plan that would help them avoid some of that legal exposure. Their new proposal has gained a good deal of support since the court's ruling, and is now the most likely option to be adopted in the coming.

In the proposal, schools located in states that laws going into effect next are instructed to follow state laws. There are currently seven states scheduled to enact NIL legislation starting July 1. There could be up to five more that join that group before the end of the month.

In states that don't have an imminent law, each individual school would be responsible for coming up with its own set of NIL policies based on a very loose set of guidelines from the NCAA: Don't let boosters pay athletes, and don't let any endorsement deals serve as recruiting inducements.”

RE: New NIL Discussion
We will see fewer athletic scholarships offered & a greater divide between halves & have nots. The NIL will prove to be good for a handful of athletes but bad for most… many who would not have the opportunity to go to college without an athletic scholarship.

RE: New NIL Discussion
Dear Memphis Alumni and Supporters:

I hope this note finds you enjoying your summer. As you are likely aware, beginning July 1, new NCAA guidance allows the ability for student-athletes to be compensated for their name, image and likeness (NIL). These opportunities may include activities such as business endorsements, selling autographs, personal appearances (e.g., speeches, commercial establishments), promoting their own business or social media endorsements. Because the University of Memphis has a strong national brand, located in a large metropolitan area with passionate fans, we believe this new era will provide unique opportunities for our student-athletes.

These potential new opportunities will also require responsibility from any potential sponsors of our student-athletes. In an effort of continued compliance and education on State of Tennessee rules and guidelines, here is a list of guidelines we ask external stakeholders to adhere to in regard to NIL compensation:
• Compensation MUST BE commensurate with the fair market value for the student-athlete’s name, image or likeness.
• Compensation MAY NOT be provided in exchange for athletic performance or inducement to attend an institution.
Intercollegiate athletes are prohibited from involvement in name, image or likeness activities that promote gambling, tobacco, alcohol and adult entertainment.

As we recently announced, we have partnered with industry leader Opendorse to equip our student-athletes with the best software to grow their personal brand and to launch our new NIL program we’re calling MaximUM. Opendorse is a one-stop app that allows them to profit off of their individual NIL, while making it easy to provide the proper reporting.

If you wish to sponsor a student-athlete, it must be done without our institution or Memphis Athletics’ assistance per legislation. However, any sponsorships must be reported through our third-party partner Opendorse.







For questions, please contact our MaximUM resource team at nil@memphis.edu or 901.678.3306.

We look forward to working with you to provide another benefit of being a University of Memphis student-athlete.

Go Tigers Go!

RE: New NIL Discussion
Yeah, I've never been one to follow student-athletes on social media. However, with NIL and the ability for our players to earn off their followers, I think now would be a time to follow these young men/women.

Anyone already following players have a good list or process for finding/adding them - maybe in a new thread?

I think so. It’s just a matter of time before corporate sponsors are paying kids to attend certain sponsored schools. Heck, Adidas is already doing it.

I wonder how long universities will continue to participate since the “student” athlete will soon be no more. At some point, these programs will need to break away and not be bound by the limitations of a university.

Boosters can now enter into name image likeness agreements with players just as long as it does not violate state law.

I was coming to see if this was posted. It seemed like as long as they were being paid for something legit there should be no issue with a booster being involved.

Why would we see fewer athletic scholarships offered? Maybe there’s something I don’t know here, but This extra money will not be coming from the school. It will be coming from local businesses. And national entities through social media. Teenagers are getting hundreds of thousands of dollars for dancing on TikTok. Gamers are getting hundreds of thousands of dollars for letting people watch them play a video game.

I think this is amazing for our athletes that they finally get to jump in on this. Get tens of thousands of followers, and national and even worldwide entities will be paying these kids big bucks to post videos of them drinking their soft drink, or wearing their clothes, or listening to their music… I think it’s about time. And schools like Memphis in large cities will do very well under these new rules. under the current archaic system, there was nothing we could ever do to level the playing field. As a matter of fact the playing field was slanted against us. As a true conspiracy right in front of everyone of us. Keeping low class Joe (non power conference) down and high-class trust fund schools (power conference) up by funneling tens of millions of dollars to each school from the same television partners who only give us a few million dollars a year.

Now, there’s nothing keeping Memphis’ sponsors from being able to jump in and legally pay players. I love it. And how anyone at a small conference doesn’t like this is beyond me. Because now new money that was illegal as of yesterday is now legal today.

When the athletes end up getting the majority of the conference TV money, things are really going to get interesting.

Money would have to get rerouted. And that can’t happen until current tv contracts are up. I believe the more likely scenario is, the conferences continue to get their usual slice of the pie and we see a whole new industry, so to speak, for the players. NIL money will be coming from different sources. And most players will not get NIL money. Only the top players most likely. I honestly don’t understand why people are making such a big deal of this. All that’s changing, if I’m a college sports player, I can now be in commercials, have a jersey for sale, get paid for autographs and memorabilia and social media posts….the overall infrastructure of college sports and the NCAA will stay the same.

I’m a high school basketball coach. If it were legal, and a local gym wanted to pay one of my players to work out at their gym and be in
Commercials, in order to boost their enrollment, my player would rightfully make money, but my team/program would be unaffected. This is essentially what’s about to happen.

The NCAA is being a bit naive, though, when they say colleges can’t arrange or use the NIL rule to recruit players, lol. Can’t wait to see
the NCAA’s selective enforcement of that rule.

The TV money can most definitely be rerouted to the athletes whether or not the current contracts are up. If they lose this lawsuit, the NCAA (and the member schools as they are essentially the NCAA) will be paying out treble damages.

I’m not gonna say this is a bad thing. Give them some of the money. Why wouldn’t the players deserve it?

I’m just not ready to predict the end of the NCAA or amateurism like many folks are. Adapt or die maybe? But if the NCAA and individual colleges are willing to adapt, they will be fine. The current system that they have benefited from for decades is akin to having free child labor in China.

It will be coming from local businesses. And national entities through social media. Teenagers are getting hundreds of thousands of dollars for dancing on TikTok. Gamers are getting hundreds of thousands of dollars for letting people watch them play a video game.

I think this is amazing for our athletes that they finally get to jump in on this. Get tens of thousands of followers, and national and even worldwide entities will be paying these kids big bucks to post videos of them drinking their soft drink, or wearing their clothes, or listening to their music… I think it’s about time. And schools like Memphis in large cities will do very well under these new rules. under the current archaic system, there was nothing we could ever do to level the playing field. As a matter of fact the playing field was slanted against us. As a true conspiracy right in front of everyone of us. Keeping low class Joe (non power conference) down and high-class trust fund schools (power conference) up by funneling tens of millions of dollars to each school from the same television partners who only give us a few million dollars a year.

Now, there’s nothing keeping Memphis’ sponsors from being able to jump in and legally pay players. I love it. And how anyone at a small conference doesn’t like this is beyond me. Because now new money that was illegal as of yesterday is now legal today.

When the athletes end up getting the majority of the conference TV money, things are really going to get interesting.

Money would have to get rerouted. And that can’t happen until current tv contracts are up. I believe the more likely scenario is, the conferences continue to get their usual slice of the pie and we see a whole new industry, so to speak, for the players. NIL money will be coming from different sources. And most players will not get NIL money. Only the top players most likely. I honestly don’t understand why people are making such a big deal of this. All that’s changing, if I’m a college sports player, I can now be in commercials, have a jersey for sale, get paid for autographs and memorabilia and social media posts….the overall infrastructure of college sports and the NCAA will stay the same.

I’m a high school basketball coach. If it were legal, and a local gym wanted to pay one of my players to work out at their gym and be in
Commercials, in order to boost their enrollment, my player would rightfully make money, but my team/program would be unaffected. This is essentially what’s about to happen.

The NCAA is being a bit naive, though, when they say colleges can’t arrange or use the NIL rule to recruit players, lol. Can’t wait to see
the NCAA’s selective enforcement of that rule.

The TV money can most definitely be rerouted to the athletes whether or not the current contracts are up. If they lose this lawsuit, the NCAA (and the member schools as they are essentially the NCAA) will be paying out treble damages.

This is a much bigger deal than purported from your response.

I’m not gonna say this is a bad thing. Give them some of the money. Why wouldn’t the players deserve it?

I’m just not ready to predict the end of the NCAA or amateurism like many folks are. Adapt or die maybe? But if the NCAA and individual colleges are willing to adapt, they will be fine. The current system that they have benefited from for decades is akin to having free child labor in China.

College baseball is only allowed 11.7 scholarships per team… meaning most are PAYING a significant portion to play ball. I wonder of those Mississippi State boys last night considered themselves slave laborers? I wonder how many would have rather been knocking down 25k in A ball in Johnson City last night instead of being treated like legends in Omaha? Most pros will tell you their college experience was their most enjoyable… because it wasn’t a business. This comparison of college kids and a Chinese labor camp is 100% hyperbole… and paying players is going to ruin college sports. Petty jealousy are most definitely going to split teams… booster offers are the new transfer will lead to countless bad decisions which will lower graduation rates… and track/ field, tennis and soccer teams will get nixed because money will be diverted to pay football & basketball players.
