NIL...aTm showing everyone how to use it.

Recommended Posts

aTm has 6 of the top 20 recruits in the 24/7 composite signed or committed to them.

 

UT has about 5 billionaire alumni/donors. How many big NIL deals have you heard about at UT? 

 

Somebody better explain to that bunch on The Hill it how it is done. We are going to get left even farther behind.

 

Alabama has been buying a professional team for years. Now they don't have to hide it. aTm caught them off guard with this spending spree. Look for the Bammers to counter with high paid recruits and portal transfers next season.

As long as Heupel is coach, it's not a portal. It's a portalet

The game of college football is officially over.

 

Eastern Michigan offering a player $1 million for 1 year. We are in year one of NIL.

 

In 5 years you will see high schoolers getting $10 million NIL deals before ever playing a down in college.

Any kid that's handed a million dollars can certainly afford to pay for their own education.

Amen to that! I said that on another forum this morning.

 

I am a long time donor. I do not mind continuing to donate to pay for the kid in a backup role with no NIL deal.

 

I am NOT going to pay for a kid that is making a million a year. No one should. He should pay his own way.

Well, it's not just that.  :mices_blah:

 

Because, what could possibly go wrong? Since we all know these kids are going to stay home every Saturday night to study their Sunday School lesson.  :icon_smile_big:

Tennessee can match anyone in the nation dollar for dollar. We have five donors who could make that happen and never miss the money from their account.

Charlie Ergen

Min Kao

Jimmy Haslam

Allan Jones

Charlie Anderson

 

Will Tennessee do that? Hell no! Doing things on the cheap is why we are the point we are now. Dollar Store coach after Dollar Store coach.

 

When Bammer went after Nick Saban they spent and unheard of $5 million per year. Every nickel they have spent has came back home dressed up like a quarter.

 

National championship teams are like printing your own money. They fill stadiums even if they are on the other side of the country. Hat and t-shirt sales alone are worth a fortune. Not to mention the free publicity from sports media. The fan base swells and people will buy anything with the school logo on it. 

 

UT simply does not understand the economics of spending money to make money. 

 

We are about to get left in the dust while UT squeezes that dollar. Don't worry though. They are adding more "premium seating" to the stadium to make a few bucks. Everyone wants to come watch teams destined for a low to mid tier bowl game year after year.

WOW!  I knew about Haslam but not the others..............:bamasucks3:

Charlie Ergen - You ever notice you see Dish Network all over the place at UT? Ergen owns Dish. - Net worth $10 billion

 

Min Kao - Kao is probably the most low key of all of them. Co-founder of Garmin...the GPS people. - Net worth $5 biilion

 

Jimmy Haslam - Haslam is a familiar name. Big Jim Haslam played on Neyland's NC team in 51. He once gave $40 million in one year. Little Jim's net worth - $4 billion

 

Allan Jones - Not sure is Jones is a billionaire, but he is very, very close. Jones gave them the money to build the aquatic center. On game day you'll see $1.5-2 million Prevost bus parked right outside the South Endzone. That is Jones.

 

Charlie Anderson - Former UT player. Not sure if Charlie is a billionaire, but he is worth hundreds of millions. Our football facility is the Anderson Training Complex. Why? He wrote the check.

 

UT has the money there. They just will not spend it. 

 

Charlie Anderson holds the record for largest boat to ever show for the Vol Navy. 145 feet long and a $40 million+ price tag.

You see those specks on top? Those are people.

The fact that Jimmy, as owner,  has called the shots for the Cleveland Browns for years should preclude him from having any say in the operations of Tennessee football.  Just write the checks and get out of the way.

The powers that be already told him that during the Schiano debacle.

 

Schiano was Haslam's hand picked man. Currie was his toady. Currie was fired and Haslam was told in no uncertain terms. "Shut up and go sit in the corner, dumbass."

Wish someone would have said that about White and Heupel....:shakehead:

Something else you're going to see with NIL.

 

Stetson Bennett will make more money with NIL deals if he comes back next year. Than he would on some NFL practice squad.
