While I do believe that the athletic department is helping them behind the scenes, the aforementioned image is being reposted by athletes from various schools. It's not an Illinois exclusive post.

Curbelo posted word for word the same message which would support my thought that the athletic department is doing work with the players behind the scenes.
Kam Cox is the DIA INFLUENCE program coordinator that handles all things NIL. They are putting forth a consistent program across the board for all athletes. Looks like we are trying to be forward looking.

"While opening NIL activities to student-athletes, the policy leaves in place the commitment to avoid pay-for-play". Um, yeah, right.



Sounds sensible, but I wonder if programs will become saturated. How many different Kentucky players basketball camps are you going to attend? And if multiple players head somewhere motivated for payoffs, what does that do to team chemistry? Gonna be a brave new world....

Players head to pro teams based on pay all the time and chemistry issues don't seem to be any more or less prevalent than on college teams.

Good point; however, I imagine that the disparity in compensation between the star(s) and the last guy on the bench will be substantially greater than that existing in the NBA (where a floor is essentially placed on that comp), which could lead to dissension. Anyone have ideas about that?

there's been disparity in playing time all along. It's just reality and the vast majority of guys are going to be fine with it. If you can't handle the fact that Ayo is going to get more NIL money than Jermaine Hamlin than I probably don't want you on my team.

I hear you, but I think the (hypothetical) chemistry problem is just as likely to be when the "Ayo" on your team doesn't feel like he's getting the NIL he "deserves" or as much NIL as the "Ayo" on [insert other school name here].

"Recent memory" has a dramatically different connotation to many on this board who aren't as long in the tooth and you (probably) and I are. George Montgomery is recent to me. ;)
To some, Illini basketball began with the Flyin Illini.:confused:

So what are the rules regarding who can pay an athlete? Do you have to be registered as a sponsor somehow? Some of these players have big followings on social media. Can their ”fans” contribute? Is there a limit on how much they can make on their NIL? I’ve not seen anything that spells out the details yet. Does the NCAA temporary ruling fall secondary to the state laws that have been passed? I don’t see how they (NCAA) could supersede laws on the books at this point in time.

Is there a limit on the number of questions you can ask in one post?........./s

I don't have all the answers, but from what I've read:

1. Sponsors have to be declared to the athlete's university (I assume for oversight and to make sure it's not a booster throwing money at a kid, at least on paper).
2. There are limits on the kinds of businesses the athlete can associate with; alcohol, tobacco, marijuana (where it's legal), and adult entertainment are off limits. (This may be specific to the State of Illinois and was done to help protect their long term interest in terms of going pro and their overall image.)

Have they found a solution for international students? F1 visas prohibit international students from earning compensation outside of campus. I suspect that we have some on our rosters.

Does F1 visa rules even apply to Puerto Rican’s since it’s a US protectorate? Seems like this would only affect BBV and Kofi if by some miracle he returns...

If NIL opportunities are funneled through DIA would they not count as being off campus?

I am also very curious what is to stop a local booster with a business from giving a 5 star recruit a 100k deal to get him to come to a certain school. In theory you could say a NIL sponsor could not be a booster for the school but then going into the grey area your boosters could just be sponsors instead of giving money directly to the school.
