    Looks like the NCAA has hit Nebraska with a few penalties, Scott Frost is going to have to miss 5 days of coaching during the season. Not sure how that will work, there are the same restrictions for other members of the Football Staff. Also I saw a comment on the "Show Cause" penalty on Frost that said his "Show Progress" edict from Trev Albert is the one he has to worry about.

    I see that former A&M verbal, QB Eli Holstein, has an Alabama offer and also the Tide have offered C J Carr. Makes me wonder if they are starting to fade in the Arch Manning sweepstakes. Texas people still feel really good about their chances, and Georgia is still in the running. I wonder when Arch will make a verbal, he's pretty key to any class.

    I find it hard to think that he would verbal to Texas untill he see's how Sarks 2nd season goes, while it's unlikely that Sark will be fired if he goes 8-4 but he won't have won the fans over. Both Alabama and Georgia just seem like safer bets for him in terms of stability of the staff and likely hood of being in the CFP chase.

    I know Texas has no other offers out for 2023 at QB. If he's going to wait till after his Sr. season it'll certainly put Texas in a bind if he doesn't come. Saban no doubt isn't going to wait that long on him.

    We'll have to see.

    The other possibility is that there are other QB's out there that are just as good but don't have the name recognition. There was an article the other day where Mark Ingram said that when Saban was recruiting him he came into his home and told him that he thought Ingram had tremendous talent and would get every chance to compete for a starting slot. Ingram made a point about the fact that Saban did not make any kind of promises about starting or anything else. I think Saban's evaluation of talent is one of his biggest strengths.

    From the article:
    Are you sure? This may not have been the advertised intent, but I find it hard to believe that many of those supporting this change didn't directly intend to use NIL in this manner. Hell, that was one of the strongest arguments lobbied AGAINST allowing NIL before it was ever opened up.

    At this point, I'm all for letting it ride on, finding out where it goes. As they said, this is not sustainable (also pointed out prior to allowing NIL) but artificially limiting it at this point will only result in more protests and lawsuits. Let it be crushed under its own weight, then figure out how to rebuild, if there is still interest at that point.

    I agree with the BIG 10 coaches, it's no doubt that the collectives are approaching players with an offer if they enter the Portal. That AA WR from Pitt is a case in point.

    I guess I should feel good, since the Aggies haven't been active in the portal...

    Well the first NCAA NIL rules have dropped.

    The guidance was developed by a task force of national leaders with student-athlete opportunity at the forefront of discussions. Specifically, the guidance defines as a booster any third-party entity that promotes an athletics program, assists with recruiting or assists with providing benefits to recruits, enrolled student-athletes or their family members. The definition could include "collectives" set up to funnel name, image and likeness deals to prospective student-athletes or enrolled student-athletes who might be considering transferring. NCAA recruiting rules preclude boosters from recruiting and/or providing benefits to prospective student-athletes.

    DI Board of Directors issues name, image and likeness guidance to schools - NCAA.org

    Good news for Coach Ryan Day and the Buckeyes:

    Ohio State Buckeyes football lands top 2024 QB prospect Dylan Raiola
    11:37 PM ET
    He is also the son of former Detroit Lions offensive lineman, Dominic Raiola. The younger Raiola had offers from nearly every major program, including his father's alma mater, Nebraska, along with Alabama, Georgia, Texas, Notre Dame, Oregon and USC among others.

    Raiola is a 6-foot-3 and 220-pound prospect from Chandler High School in Chandler, Arizona, and recently transferred from Burleson, Texas, where he played for former NFL quarterback Jon Kitna. His sophomore season, under Kitna, he threw for 3,243 yards and 42 touchdowns and will play for his Chandler team this season.

    I remember his dad. I'm pretty sure he played center and was with the Lions for a number of years. One of his teammates Mark Spindler has a son who plays DL for ND. Boy you know you're getting old...

    Well, at least they left in the "feature" of subjective application of their guidance:

    I was worried for a moment there that there would be equal application for all. PHEW!

    From the Article Stu cited:
    That's a class statement. IMO it describes a class mindset as it relates the the portal.
