NIL Issues in Happy Valley?

The SI article literally says he wasn't. Giving him two cars just doesn't pass the sniff test. Letting him choose between two cars to use does. Perhaps try being critical of sources.

The post from Instagram says 1 car isn’t enough for him. Why do you trust SI over CBS and the Instagram account of the actual car dealership? This isn’t the 1990s, SI is essentially defunct at this point. 
 

And it’s not just CBS. Every outlet reported that he received 2 care because that’s what the Instagram account of the dealership says.

Do NIL income sources get tracked by anyone at the university? I could see incoming blue chip recruits making much more money than existing team members.

I have read they have to be approved by the University to prevent association with gambling.

Along these lines, then what is to stop some Ivy League alum, hedge fund guy from giving some blue chip wrestling recruit a six figure endorsement deal or internship to wrestle for UPenn or Cornell?

PRINCETON, N.J. – With the NCAA's adoption of a new policy allowing student-athletes to use their name, image and likeness (NIL) in a commercial manner, the Ivy League has adjusted existing rules to permit student-athletes to engage in NIL activity.

While the NCAA legislation takes effect today, all changes are subject to state law and institutional policies and all remain true to foundational NCAA and Ivy League prohibitions on pay-for-play and impermissible recruiting inducements.

I believe that any deal needs to be submitted to the university's compliance office.  How do you enforce that?  Same way you currently enforce prohibitions on payments today.

There's also nothing stopping that alum, hedge fund guy from bankrolling an RTC.  Like at Cornell or Penn State.

They gave him a choice between two cars. And Sports Illustrated reported that it is the use of the cars he was given. Not the cars to own. That he got the use of one of them the week after one of many big games for him doesn't mean he got the use of one of them for that game alone. I get you have a viewpoint to support, but come on.

They gave him a choice between which, of two cars he now owns, to drive to and from practice (not class, mind you).

Nothing?  Unless Ivey schools won't allow it.

But you're wrong. It hasn't been a mess. This thread is about an unsubstantiated rumor that is probably false.

If it's not a mess yet, it will be.

Well that just can’t be true since I was told when this all started that these deals wouldn’t cause a distraction for any of the athletes nor their team/coaches.
