I don't think most people realize how much some boosters are willing to pay to win. The system is total nonsense and has almost nothing to do with actual name/image/likeness value--never mind, you know, actual academics.How much are these guys really getting though?
Does anyone know how much are defecters got? I heard OO got an absurd amount, but it seemed too far fetched to be true?I heard Powell got upwards of $200k. I'm sure his name and likeness are really worth that much for 4-5 months in Pullman, WA.
Beat me to it. Given some of these figures being thrown around, I am certainly curious to hear about what out guys actually received.Does anyone know how much are defecters got? I heard OO got an absurd amount, but it seemed too far fetched to be true?
Did we through any NIL $ towards our new transfers?
I heard the three remaining seniors were each offered between $10,000 and $20,000 just to enter the portal before the deadline. That is obviously not allowed, but who the hell is regulating this lawless nonsense?Beat me to it.

Yeah this is funny money for college kids. I'm having a hard time holding this against them, except for the honor code type stuff, but this is life kickstart $ being thrown around.I feel less bad about Osun, bro. Sure, a promise is a promise, but 300K is 300K. Godspeed...
Meh. Those offers surfaced after they entered the portal (coerced by the aforementioned cash offers just to enter), so it wasn’t as if those deals were officially juxtaposed with the verbally agreed-upon Bona pacts.
Also, why wait until two days before the deadline? It isn’t as if the three seniors were mysteries to the rest of D1. One’s word matters. They’re certainly allowed to pursue the last-second cash offers, as they did, but I’m also allowed to consider their Bona legacies irreparably tainted.
