I am in the thinking that places like A&M and Alabama are on the same page for the most part with Boosters. I would assume there are boosters that want to play the game but ND doesn't want to get down in the mud with these guys. At the end of the day if its all legal I don't know NDs hesitation, but I assume booster want to boost if ND would let them. LET THE BOOSTERS BOOST!!At the end of the day ND Boosters need to step up and front money to these kids it's the only way they will compete with the Bama's Georgias and Ohio States. There's a reason we can only land 2-3 DE guys a class and Texas A&M landed 18 over the last two years.
The whole purpose of NIL was for the college player. It was to help college athletes have avenues to receive financial compensation for their name, image and likeness. It was never suppose to be pay for play. So ND won't play that game, because it goes against the spirit of NIL, and they disagree with it.I am in the thinking that places like A&M and Alabama are on the same page for the most part with Boosters.

Its proabbly also safe to say that these other guys have been doing this for awhile anyway to some degree. Its probably easy to for a place like A&M to find money than ND, even though the money coming through ND circles is just as much, if not more.
Notre Dame probally has just as many Alumni that are CEO's (Millionaires, Billionaires) then just about any other school in the nation. At least top 10. There's no reason why they can't be big time players and the fact that ND historically draws a bigger crowd and viewing then just about any other school that plays in games there's no reason why there isn't more big time NIL deals for these kids from big time brands.
It comes down to "want to" at this point.
ND has 2,085 ultra-high net worth individuals (over $30MM) for a combined wealth of $179 Billion. Only a handful of schools, all with much bigger student populations than ND, are on that list that have power 5 programs.
I mean sort of, yeah…but the kid isn’t much older than 17 and he’s parlayed his niche into a job with On3 and a Twitter following of 72k users. He’s doing what he loves and probably bankrolling more than most of us while doing it.I guess it works for him, but what a strange way to spend your time. Making fan art of 17 year olds.
Keeley has really only been linked to those four schools. Would be kind of weird and needless pot-stirring to just put in him in, like, a Michigan uniform for the fun of it.If so, why not other schools that aren't projected as a landing spot?
I'm not buying it, even if he said so.
