  1. Next up…IRS, state, and local governments will want a slice of this new found “income” these athletes are making. The value of a scholarship, housing, meals, apparel, etc. is now secondary to NIL. I am all for players receiving a stipend and money for their likeness (like #2 Cam jersey), but it has to be some form of oversight or this is gonna continue to get worse.
  2. I’m just amazed at how many people (posters) have gotten this NIL thing figured out and what needs to be done. I honestly don’t have a clue. It’s new, and the Auburn athletic department is known to be more diligent around compliance vs the other schools, so it’s no surprise to me it’s been a bit slow out of the gate. Auburn was going to check all boxes, dot all i’s, and cross all T’s before an aggressive move was made into this space.
  3. Under Armour cleats are comparable to competitors…clothing as well, baskeball and running shoes are well behind Nike and Adidas. When it comes to team athletics New Balance should sit quietly in the corner.
  4. NIL in the legal sense is new for all parties involved, NIL in the illegal sense has been easy for some schools because they already had a foundation of paying kids in the first place. Not sure where Auburn falls but it comes as no surprise that schools like UGA, UA, TAMU, and a few others have found an easier transition to “legal” NIL.
  5. I would love for someone to explain “culture fit”
  6. They did not like him because he probably told them to get out my way and let me do my damn job.
  7. Now they out grinding and some ain’t satisfied 🤷🏽‍♂️
  8. Not to mention they did not consistently play well, 3-5 conference, 5-6 overall. He could have definitely made some noise if he was there last year.
  9. Odds Auburn can be 4-1 or 5-0 heading to UGA on October 8….?? In order to have any chance for a successful season Auburn has to take advantage of the first 5 at home….
  10. Stay and become a slash Hines Ward type…yes or no..maybe a Kodi Burns redo…🤷🏽‍♂️🤷🏽‍♂️ Ijs…kid is very athletic…
  11. Tiny hands …anything else we need to add 😂
  12. Wonder what Freeze can do with him…or maybe UCF with Gus 🤷🏽‍♂️
  13. Defense against Bama played lights out until OT. With that defensive effort and a healthy Nix, I can see that as a win.
