Wanna be a big dog... Gotta run with the big dogs.

So here's a far fetched thought but what if we banded donors together and offered the same incentives for N-I-L to our athletes that the SEC is proposing.

First just the notoriety of doing it would attract national attention for being the first to get ahead of the trend. Also the level of talent would probably be raised as well.

Imagine being the first in the state to formalize the new wild West, but also the attention it would get from potential expanding conferences.

It would also be keeping with UNT's tradition of being a leader in innovation.

You talk about bringing in more talented players. But we already have more talent on this roster than any UNT team has ever had. And look what’s happening with it. 
 

The big dogs we need to run with are the ones who dismiss coaches and buy out contracts.

We can’t even cover the scholarships themselves as a donor base.

The schools don’t offer anything as far as NIL. It’s the brand that the athlete has or builds during their athletic career that gives them the monetary compensation. I don’t really understand what you’re trying to propose

Not to speak for ScreamingEaglesFan, but “someone”’ pays for NIL.  I think he’s suggesting that UNT donors get together and be that “someone” as a mechanism to lure talent to the team.  Basically start paying players (legally of course via the NIL program).
