Question is that once you drop enough dough on a high school kid and his family to "seemingly" be in high cotton the rest of their days. What reason is there to work after that? This NIL stuff will quickly find out all about the law of diminishing returns. I'm not sure if Texas A&M isn't the dead canary in the coal mine.
That’s the advantage of Saban’s process. Let’s be real though, that would test any person’s mental fortitude.

There is so much truth to what you're saying and I think this is what we'll ultimately see materialize on the field, is a subpar product. Not every superstar is like Bryce Young, in that even though he is already a millionaire, still plays like his next meal depends on it. That is HIGHLY uncommon for adults, yet we expect it out of kids? LOL! Unless tighter framework is put on the NIL and the transfer portal, we're about to see a very good product potentially go to crap.

Hell yeah !! Why work to achieve anything in life? I`m sorry, but all this is doing, at least the way it`s currently configured, is contributing to the ongoing wussification of our society.

Understandable and expectable how this has skewed recruiting, and impacted the CNS approach of adding to your own value by sticking with a proven Process.
But, this will eventually weaken many of the programs, and be one of the big nails in the coffin of college football.
For the current moment, I’m wondering if it already hasn’t bitten some of our current players. Bryce might be a lot more of an exception….think how lackadaisical this years guys appeared to be, and consider the lack of focus/attention to detail that saw so many penalties and other mental errors.
We have met the enemy…….

Heard Rodney Orr on radio and he spoke with Keely and he believes Bama is in good shape
Is he a signing day announcement? Also I know this is a little off topic but usually it's our pigskin guys who show everybody how to get it done, but maybe this year it will be our lady soccer team who step up. Hard to believe but the final 4 for futbol begins tomorrow night on ESPNU. We are there and we are GOOD. Everybody should tune in for a minute, let's get those ratings up. Men's Bball team looks good too. ROLL TIDE.
