Completely agree. Focus should be on fixing football before entering the AAC and funneling significant funds to McCasland’s basketball program to build us to a perineal Top 50 program. NIL Collective will be a big part of this
Nice that there is a group interested in baseball for UNT - but it’s an unnecessary distraction in the current D1 Athletics environment and should continue to be back burnered.
Any payments should be totally based on the use of a player's "NIL". If his name is used by media in stories, or photos of him in a play, then he gets credits towards payments. No play, no pay. Simple.
Required by who? The NCAA doesn't enforce T9, it is the lawsuits from individuals that are the problem.
Title 9 is the best thing to ever happen for women sports and the worse for men's athletics.
Nothing like a statue stating that women athletics funding should be portional to the numbers enrolled. Not taken in account the financial aspects, or market. The only two sports that have any hopes of generating a profit at most institutions are football and men's basketball.
Of course because football has so many scholarships, it creates an enormous problem trying to balance women and men athletes. Instead of increasing women ships, the overwhelming tactic has been to cut men's sports.
I wonder why noone has ever challenged the NCAA on the basis of equality for men athletes in sports other than football and basketball. Even MBB has less ships than WBB.
