Thrilled for and proud of colleagues Mike Breen and Michael Wilbon as they are honored by the @Hoophall with the Curt Gowdy Award. There aren’t two better pros in the business, nor two better people. Congrats Mike and Michael! @espn @ESPNNBA
By the NCAA’s tortured logic and nonsensical rhetoric, this UNI student is now an employee of UNI. How absurd that a non-athlete student can make $10K for hitting a shot, by a player is disallowed from making a nickel. So ridiculous. https://t.co/3tzJTTxl5q
The NCAA turns its back on players with pro aspirations, blaming its problems on “one and done.” That elitist attitude will hurt basketball and education, which it claims to champion. We should welcome all players to college and incentivize them to stay. https://t.co/jwU2oeAEtU
Remember, there’s just not enough money...oh, and this doesn’t count as “recruiting,” which is only done with athletes because it would create an imbalance if a decision was made factoring in money and not “the right reasons.” Blah, blah, blah. https://t.co/Iefi4bBztA
RT @andyhre: As I hit the road to head to work, I want to close this stream thread this a thought: There is zero reason why a patchwork of state laws will cause problems, as long as no state bans NIL pay. schools in AZ can offer the same pay as those in CA, even if AZ law doesn't mandate.
What football spends in recruiting...a clear competitive advantage, yet the NCAA has never asked Congress for help. That’s reserved only for the exploitation of athletes. The only line drawn on competitive balance is what players are allowed? Lame. https://t.co/Qph4gKaMTQ
