    It would have been a better look if Jimbo had actually said, "yes we will use the NIL just like other teams do" Texas, Ohio St, Alabama have all given a decent amount of info and some examples of how they are using it. ATM did not get out ahead of the game by admitting it?

    And the Jimbo vehemence in sounding so outraged... when a person refers to a specific allegation such as "there is no 30 million dollar fund" made by some random nobody reads like, "Its actually 35 million and its not in a fund, its in a number of charitable set ups by boosters"

    This all being said most people dont know what any of the rules really are except that coaches cant promise a certain amount and renege on the offer.
    It would be interesting to see what a contract looks like for lawyers and such. And also maybe this gets out in the open enough so kids can talk about what they are doing with the money if they want to.

    Now Kiffin at Ole Miss... that is funny because he had to know he would have access to illegal booster money. But now its dwarfed by legal money by "bigger" schools. But he is certainly correct, the field is not level.

    The sec on the whole gets into these accusations constantly. ATM was also referencing LSU as a big pay school when it was illegal (amongst my friends; they hate LSU). Honestly, part of the reason I think Jimbo is good for ATM and the sec is he can and knows the dirty game. Now it does not matter. He is in fine shape with the money ATM can give.

    Do you think he is trying to not talk about the NIL because he thinks there will be locker room problems? I think thats a legit reason for staying away from the subject. Comparing "salaries" might be a really awful team builder.
    i really can't say but keeping 18 year old kids from bragging about how much they are getting in "NIL" deals is not going to be easy. and i agree about jimbo-he knows how to play the game; he is a good a fit for the political culture of A&M as mack brown was for Texas.

    i had been out of the loop for a while and so i was a bit surprised when i read that demas is transferring but not surprised for the reasons why. i hope he doesn't find himself repeating the career trajectory of speedy noll. looks like even stewart will get a lot of opportunities a true freshman.

    dumb ass move considering he's a senior. jimbo will likely suspend for one game, two max. the DWI is inexcusable, the rolled joint will get dismissed and not sure on the gun charge (i mean, doesn't texas not give a about who carries a gun; or maybe that leniency doesn't apply to Blacks).
