    Cat is out of the bag now and there will be no way to put it back in. I am torn on the issue but this will be the death of college sports as we have known it. Time will tell if it ends up being a good or bad thing but it will definitely be different.

    Kid has 5 million followers on social media. He was going to get paid one way or another, it was just a matter of time.

    What we should all want is for dollars like this to flow in, since this company isn't tied to a particular school. This kid, with this endorsement, will probably go HBCU for a year or two - then go pro. The blue bloods, with their under the table endorsements, would have in the past convinced him to come play for them.

    Yep basketball is and always has been a dirty sport that has been paying $$$$$ for a long time. Man I never will forget a recruiting trip I took to a Mississippi Kids house way back when and a brand new Cadillac was sitting in the this old dirt drive way and the house was a "shotgun one light bulb" house if you catch my drift. This kid also got a new ride when he attended the University of his choice. True story. That was 1979-80 year.

    Because 18 year olds are glued to their phone 24/7 365. Go to a restaurant now and everyone in there is on their phone instead of living life. Parents sitting at playgrounds on their phones instead of spending time with their kids. Smart phones while great and convenient(I myself spend too much time on it) are probably going to be looked back at as a very interesting experiment, and one that will probably cause a lot of mental health problems down the road.

    Are you totally void of a sense of humor?

    All I see of mine is above the bridge of her nose any more. The rest of her face is blocked by her phone. Could have saved a shit load of money on braces.

    We don't like policies that have produced neighborhoods more dangerous than Baghdad.

    We would prefer black out of wedlock Births be similar to whites like they were prior to 1960 and reject policies that have widened that gap by margins only a dumbass would be okay with.

    How much money did Greenwood spend on my parent's education in the 50's? What has happened to the ROI? Why do we scream for more money? Is this not worth bitching about?

    The road to hell is paved with good intentions.

    Mikey Williams has been popular for years, he has had NBA players and coaches come watch him, this case is a little different. If you follow high school basketball he has been destroying competition since the 9th grade and had his own t.v. show on Overtime... this situation is a little different, he was going to get paid regardless
