Is something wrong with this club? Only one person wanted to donate?

What would help is knowing it’s legit. Anyone could fake that and scam people. If I knew this was the preferred method for basketball, I’d be happy to participate.

I am announcing today the
9769_2
NIL Club.

I’ve been approached by other boards who have told me that although they can’t match the content here, they are willing to up the $$ for my participation. Hopefully enough of you will contribute so that I can hang around here another season.

Nimari being listed here does not mean he’s through admissions

How can we get some kind of confirmation that this collective is legit (so we can try to make it more “real”)?

I think that @DMB43 was being facetious, or at least I read it that way.

Really good article. The question I wish would have been asked is what do coaches do if their NIL package stinks? Hope the relationship with the player is strong enough to overcome lack of NIL or just move on?

Same thing you do if your facilities stink. Your TV deal stinks. Your team stinks.

Recruit harder or recruit someone else :rofl:

I think their webpage could be a bit clearer on what it is and who is running it, and also U of M has 4-5 NIL “collectives” officially recognized, and I don’t believe this is one (yet?) which is clearly a problem.

It doesn’t appear to be a collective. It’s just the players basically running a go fundme for themselves

Pretty sure it is just a website similar to Cameo or something, where players can just sign up as a team and people can contribute.

It’s mostly smaller teams, etc.

It’s not a “collective” more like a group of players just signed up from what I can tell.

This also isn’t how “real” NIL works as far as collectives which hire AD fundraising types to go out and raise real money and then set up events etc to pass it through to players.

Is it “legal” then (by NCAA rules)?

And can we get some kind of confirmation that it’s truly the players and going right to the players?

Yeah, it is probably more “legal” than the way collectives are operating everywhere else.

I believe someone said Dug tweeted it out. I assume the YOKE company running it is verifying players somehow. Not really sure how you could “fake it” you can see bunch of teams here:

So would this committee have enforcement powers at the institutional level? Or still the NCAA? It reads like NCAA will still be responsible for the athletes themselves.

Haven’t read the details but I assume the answer to any question would be that no one has a clue.
