N.I.L. Money

Postby Kevin Reilly » Fri Apr 05, 2024 10:39 pm

I am in the dark when it comes to Xavier Basketball N.I. L. money. I have heard that Xavier has 3 million in N.I.L. I assume that means yearly? So do we have like a GENERAL MANAGER who decides who gets what and how much they get paid? It seems to me with over 300 D1 basketball teams that would be like a full time job. Miller and the coaches have a lot of work to do already .Does anyone know what U Conn spends on their men's basketball team? I read Paige Buecker ( U Conn basketball ) makes 650,000 a year.

Did we spend 3 million on last years team? Do players have agents? How do they know what their N.I.L. value is without a agent or some outside help? I wonder if we need to hire a scout as a full time N.I.L. guy . I believe U Conn has one. I think without a full time N.I.L person we are probably way behind in the Portal race. I couldn't find what the U Conn basketball players made in N.I.L. money this year but I saw Adam Sanogo a Forward for U CONN made 773,000 last year. Preparation is probably vital in signing these portal players. If this is the way we seem to be headed Signing more portal players than high school guys we need to get serious about the portal. College coaches are working 10-12 hour days already and don't have the time to know a lot about players on other teams. I prefer the old school way of getting high school players and developing them over 4-5 years . However that takes patience. Very hard for any freshman to make a impact competing against players 4-5 years older

I'd be shocked if they don't have someone in position to monitor NIL developments... And I'd guess everyone in the coaching profession knows exactly what the players on other rosters are making in NIL money... Dan

I think the NIL money could be the start of the end for College basketball

I would contend we are in the bubble of the NIL market.

Can’t imagine the prices we are hearing right now are sustainable, but they also aren’t enforceable since there are no contracts.

Replying to @MattNorlander
Have also heard a few funny stories where decent high-major starters are now asking double or triple in NIL $$$ vs. what top-10 guys in the portal were getting 2 yrs ago. Some thought NIL collective 💵 might dwindle a tad. Instead, there are more people in NIL space than ever.


My view of NILs is:
There is a system of NIL money with little or no thought, but what is the NCAA's gut reaction to the successful lawsuits against it by students and athletes? If prices continue on this trajectory, schools may find that they cannot sustain losing money to maintain a sports program of football, basketball, or any other sport.

Does anyone want to offer a solution? I am sure college presidents would love to hear a solution to this stampede of money flowing out instead of into the colleges that are pricing themselves out of business when declining enrollment begins.
I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em.

I believe we have a full time NIL person. I hear we aspire to $3 million but we at $2 million last year. Where is our T Boone Pickens?

The till is reportedly in the $3.5M range. Unconfirmed, and I suspect it changes from year to year. Hopefully, X can pocket some for next year.

Best of luck to Des, and the rest who transferred for that matter. This also applies to the potential future portal entrants. Their priority should be themselves, and as long as they honor their annual commitment to X, which they all did, I believe we should feel nothing but gratitude towards them.
