    Thibodeaux is both an amazing football player and has the personality/intelligence to be a star

    if he stays healthy, he should make himself a ton of money outside of football

    I've seen "distance was a factor" on here for a while. What is the origin story of that? Something a 'croot said?

    Was a running joke for a long time on how we were always a recruits favorite school but didn’t commit because they lived to far from Eugene. This sentiment was distilled down to a running joke among us ducks as distance was a factor.

    No way. They are just dumb athletes who should shut up and be grateful they get to go college.

    I don’t speak for herb.burdette but I don’t think that was his point at all. I took it to be an observation/concern that the magnitude of the paychecks these kids receive may be dramatically higher than when herb waited tables or when I worked the pool grill at the country club that one summer. These kids could be looking at 5 and 6 figure compensation models, and if they are paid as contractors there will be no tax withholding. I hope there is some framework in place to protect and advise these athletes about how taxes work and what they need to do to protect themselves, but I have a feeling we will see stories of kids getting in trouble. I’m guessing this will fall to schools/ADs.

    None of the above should be construed as an argument against NIL.

    Oh I agree and getting a 1099 is certainly different than W2. Actors who make a lot of money quickly have this happen too.

    Im sure the universities will have a staff member to help with this. At least they should. If I was an AD at a school this would be a priority.

    This really puts the NCAA in an interesting position. Boosters can openly take advantage of paying players now, and nobody is going to take the NCAA’s side if they try to act. They’ve lost too much clout with the media and general public at this point.

    I like the idea of a car dealer giving a player a car for some commercials or something.

    I think one thing that may happen is some players will be underpaid for their endorsements. Like here is 1000 bucks for something that their time and likeness to endorse would be worth more. I haven’t read the rules, but can these players have representation like an agent or manager?

    well that’s a plus. Some of these agents are sharks, but at least someone is protecting the athletes value and making sure they maximize their earnings.

    Read this morning that Bama has hired a financial advisor for student athletes. I’m sure most if not all universities will do the same. You can use ours or get your own, but at least someone is there.

    Yes, I have been in favor of an Olympic model of amateurism since O’Bannon filed suit a decade ago.

    The only point on this tax discussion is that it has potential to trip up a lot of athletes who aren’t going to save the cash when tax comes due.

    Pete Rose spent jail time for failure to disclose autograph income. Lindsay Vonn had the IRS file a seven figure tax lien against her.

    It’s going to happen to some of these kids.

    That is literally the only point raised.

    It’s a company founded by a bunch of former military members who clearly are proud of the fact they served. Not sure why that’s something that should be mocked, but do you.
