NIL is the beginning of the end of CBB. Boosters will be paying $50,000 for a player's signed jersey (or promising to pay to potential recruits( as a way of boosting the chance of the player coming to their preferred school or staying).

The easy way out for the NCAA is to simply state they will not use the player's NIL, but that the player can't use it until they leave college either. It removes the ill-conceived notion that the universities and the NCAA are "profiting" from the athletes. The "profits" from men's CBB and football pay for all of the other sports (including some club sports), as not a single sport is self supporting other than men's CBB and football. In inconvenient truth . . .
