    I'll be interested to see how this works b/c the company owner is a UGA Booster/Fan.

    Why does it matter? I assumed those type of "improper contact" rules were disappearing. Are there still quote unquote impermissible benefits?

    The NCAA is going to try to put guidelines on this. Will they limit companies or just be a free for all? I hope it's the later

    Pretty sure they do not have resources to police that sort of thing. Would be impossible I would think

    What's the best thing schools are going to help their players' NIL efforts?

    This is a great question.

    Honestly, I think the bar here is pretty low. There are still a ton of college athletes who don't meaningfully know what they should be doing to find a $250 NIL deal (which I believe is obtainable by every single D-I athlete). I know many mid and low-majors have told me they simply do not feel they have the operational capacity to help athletes with this right now.

    The smartest moves I've seen haven't been the flashiest. Schools that are bringing their businesses schools and campus subject-matter experts to their athletic departments are doing their athletes a real service. I've seen a few schools build relationships with local Chambers of Commerce, which I think is very smart. More and more are embracing group licensing, which is an easy way to get money into the pockets of athletes as well.

    For all the talk of NIL being transformational, honestly, I don't think things have changed that much for the typical D-I athlete. I'm hopeful everybody will be better at serving these needs by next school year.

    Lambert made his comments three days before Sportico reported Friday that the NCAA is exploring whether his Miami deal violates any rules. UM has not informed of any ongoing NCAA investigation. Lambert, reached by phone after Sportico’s story was released, was adamant that his NIL deal violated no NCAA rules. “[Expletive] the NCAA,” Lambert said Friday evening. “I would love to sue those scumbags. I hired the pre-eminent attorney in the country on NIL [Darren Heitner] and he crossed every T, dotted every I and they still want to look into it. Maybe [the NCAA is] scared they’re losing their power. They’re all pieces of [expletive].” Heitner said Lambert’s deal received authorization from UM and no NCAA rules were broken

    I'd be interested in seeing the cut he's taking. If he's doing it just to get money to kids, great foe him. I have a feeling he's taking a nice cut for brokering the deals though.

    He’s on record saying he wasn’t able to broker any additional deals because the team shit the bed.

    Did he take a cut of the first deal? Wasn't it like 500k?

    I’m usually in favor of athletes getting every red cent of money whenever they can, but in this narrow case, I agree that the state should absolutely cap the amounts that college players in Florida can receive.

    Would be funny to put that quote in front of people with CEOs instead and see how the reactions to both differ
