According to merriam-webster.com:

Allusion refers to the act of making an implied or indirect reference to something.

An illusion is either a mistaken idea or something that is false or not real but that seems to be true or real.

Sorry, but it doesn't get the point across that I think you are trying to make when using the word "allusion" instead of "illusion".

I'm afraid you have out smarted yourself. Allusion is the correct word choice when the idea intended is that the process contemplated is "implied" by those using ii to claim it is an objective NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP when in fact it is not, due to the restrictions & limitations imposed by those making the claims. The fact that this is "implied" may also create an illusion but that is in the reasoning of those receiving the information such as yourself.

When you allude to something you 'refer' to it. The correct word was illusion,,,,,

The template changed and as of yet what we have done NIL is good yet our peers or teams who use to be our peers are far more advanced and armed with $$$$$.

I feel for teams that are not in a P5, this is not going to be easy. Never has been for Memphis - yet we seem to keep on finding ways to be really good on the outside looking in.

Lets hope we can change the template a bit to figure out our way.

Yes, and this is just the beginning. Anyone paying attention knew that this arms race would escalate very quickly.

P5s getting fat conference payouts can afford to divert / redirect far more private donar money towards NIL deals than schools like Memphis.

The G5 will become a primary source of player development for the P5. Watch and see how this 'evolves' over the next decade.

NIL is just a legal slush fund and G5 schools - which were already at a huge disadvantage especially when you combine NIL with the more liberal transfer rules - are truly screwed unless they can figure something out...

I'm concerned about NIL as well. However, this is just the beginning. Businesses jumping out there with big money may or may not decide this is a good investment. It's going to take some time for things to play out.

I'm afraid that you have "out smarted" yourself by defining and using each word properly. 03-lmfao
