I'd be surprised if they don't have a printing company that is just makes them on demand. I, as small business, have this option with a small local printing company.
I work at a school and we have a partnership with a local printer for spirit wear. They'll print on demand, but it'll cost. We can absorb that as a large district. I doubt these kids have that kind of seed money to start.

Everyone but Trent and DMW have signed deals with a regional (but started here) printer/merch company.

A new research study dropped today from the American Psychological Association regarding identity and attitudes toward paying college athletes. Not sure if this fully fits in the NIL thread, but alas, it's an interesting read.

Abstract​

Objectives: The present studies examined two dimensions of racial ingroup identification, using them as predictors of Black and White Americans’ attitudes toward paying college athletes. Following Leach et al. (2008), the present work distinguished between ingroup self-investment and ingroup self-definition. The central prediction was that respondent race and self-investment would interact in predicting compensation support. Method: In three studies (N = 352, N = 476, & N = 562), U.S. residents who were 18 or older and either Black or White completed an online survey in which they completed a self-report measure of racial identification, as well as reporting their opinion of paying college athletes. Results: The results supported the prediction, demonstrating that Black respondents’ support was higher than that for Whites, but this was especially the case at high levels of self-investment. The third study suggests that these effects were driven by respondents who believed that Black athletes made up a larger percentage of the pool of likely beneficiaries of compensation. Ingroup self-definition played no role as a moderator. Conclusions: Broadly speaking, it may be that, for policies whose likely beneficiaries are disproportionately Black, stronger racial self-investment serves to widen racial divides in support.

This is version 2.0 of the ILL-NIL effort from a few months back. Craig McDonald was the guy behind that and from what I understand he and DiSanto are the driving force here. Same basic concept with a little more organization behind it. Supposed to be a more in depth interview on WDWS Saturday Sportsline tomorrow.

Anyone who is interested in how the process works should give a listen. Starts at about 16:10

Are there any estimates on how much Kofi earns off of NIL? Looking at the Big Ten he probably isn’t the top 3 or 4 Big Ten NBA prospect. Is it better for him to come back and be the face of college basketball or go pro?

Lot's of interesting questions about scenarios for this.

1. How do they make a commitment to a recruit? Is it in writing? Is it legally binding?
2. How is it paid out? What if there is an injury ending the career? What if they transfer?
3. How financially backed are all the commitments? Do they have money in hand before making commitments? What if the organization folds? Who policies the organization for fraud and improper use or management of funds?

Questions not just for Illinois but all of the various groups that are surely being put together. (Have not followed this closely before so maybe some of these issues have already been raised and discussed)

Many of these were answered in the podcast above.
