Why wouldn’t you want players to get paid? These kids are risking injuries they carry forward for a lifetime for our entertainment. This sport is big and moneyed enough for the players to get a slice. Iowa is going to be just fine in this new system. College football needed a kick in the ass to upset some of the stratification in this sport.
Still has to be some coordination with HC of team. Collective may think someone adds value but HC could strongly disagree and at what point does the collective gain a vote as to the roster?You're way overthinking this. Pro rosters have wild disparities in salary and bench players there often get paid more than the starters, especially when somebody happens to be on a rookie deal. These deals are going to be paid out by collectives, which will have thousands of donations (think GoFundMe, with monthly giving). Hard strings aren't going to be on this money in terms of what the collective will do. If there are screw ups in terms of allocating a lot of resources to kids who aren't playing, well, either you fire the head coach and/or the "GM" that runs the collective.
I think he's been to IC 6-7 times already. Not sure it means anything and it might be as innocent as he wanted to visit Oregon and it was the only weekend that worked for those involved.I see Proctor has scheduled 3 OVs so far. Not one for Iowa yet. And I think his Oregon OV is the same weekend as Iowa's big June OV weekend. Doesn't seem like the best development for their chances.
Fact. $8M is 40 yrs of making $200k salary. Invest $7M of that and if you only make 5% returns annually, that's $350k per year in interest. That's "never have to work, do what something that makes you happy" kind of money.8 million sets you up for life…..and that kind of financial security makes finding happiness a hell of a lot easier.
Well not really.I think he's been to IC 6-7 times already. Not sure it means anything and it might be as innocent as he wanted to visit Oregon and it was the only weekend that worked for those involved.
If his family wants to see him play in person... Iowa is still the pick.
His decision, but chasing dollars won't make you happy IMO.
While all this maybe true ! Can you really say that if we don't get the best linemen we can that we'll be fine.If he becomes a Hawk that's awesome. If not, life goes on. Looks to be a great player, but a single great olineman won't be that impactful in the grand scheme of things. For some perspective, Iowa had perhaps the best olineman in the entire country last year and he played as well as any college lineman could. It wasn't nearly enough to offset deficits elsewhere resulting in an offense that was less than adequate.
I guess I'd agree. I'd rather have a bunch of good linemen and a stud QB or RB than one star lineman surrounded by what we had last year. The oline is really only as good as it's weakest link. My point I guess is that the Iowa offense won't be much better or worse off regardless of what Proctor decides to do. That really depends upon the collective group and whether Iowa can grab/develop a star skill player or 2.While all this maybe true ! Can you really say that if we don't get the best linemen we can that we'll be fine.
I'd say just the opposite we need more of the best linemen .
Life does go on but it's harder without really good offensive line play, and to have that you need the best you can get..........Can't have to many great linemen, that's your foundation .
Do you want to build a new house on anything that's not real stable or good ?
We seem to always have a weak link on the offensive line if it's not the interior it's the tackles ?
So basically get rid of NIL, and develop a system that takes top recruits away from the top tier schools and spreads them out among other CFB programs so they can have more success as well?In truth, there is a very small list of colleges now that ever compete for the National Championship. That list won't be altered a great deal by NIL, but it will cause the rest of us to pony up some cash just to stay in the game.
