    That ship has sailed. The NCAA had their nuts cut off by Congress. There will eventually be a 50 team Super League probably supplemented by the NFL, and State will not be a part of it.

    At some point Ole Miss and State will truly become the Harvard and Yale of the South. 🥲🥲

    Ole Miss will be part of it MSU wont unless it has a change of Leadership. We will have a cool baseball stadium where we can play USM, Delta State and Millsaps.

    I agree 100%. For workers in a free market economy this kind of stuff can work but sports leagues are a totally different animal and none have ever worked like this at any level. Even in the pros you have salary caps and multi year contracts and players have to come in under the draft long before they can become free agents. There has NEVER been a sports league operating where every player can just go sign with the highest bidder and renegotiate with someone else the next year all the while the best new incoming players can choose the team they want to play for that can throw the most money at them. I am not against players reaping some benefit from the money generated in college athletics (particularly football) but this absolutely is NOT the way to go about it. Even when the courts decided to allow NIL, what's happening now was absolutely not the intention even though anyone with common sense should have known this would be the result. Money being thrown out now is strictly to get players to either come or stay at a school and has nothing to do with the player doing something tangible to actually earn money off their name, image or likeness which was the intention. But it really doesn't matter what the rules are when the rules become unenforceable like they are now.

    Nobody would watch college sports anymore. No need. Just start watching pro.

    Not so fast. Having Scott Stricklin and Greg Byrne as other SEC ADs would be super helpful. Sankey's child is an MSU alum, and Keenum is well-connected politically. Not to mention we don't have the recent racial baggage. It would be great to place MSU people at more higher-up positions in other ADs, but as it is I don't think we're any more likely to get left out than Ole Miss.

    (And I doubt either of us will anyway. It's the Pac-12 and Big 12 schools with small fanbases who would get left out if the entire Power 5 doesn't get to be a part of it.)

    I?m looking forward to the return of student athletes playing for the school they love. Sport will be just as good and probably more exciting. Can we speed it the switch

    When was that the case? Maybe the 1930s? And it ain't changing

    NIL monies are no different that we have had for decades and decades. You just see it now. There was always monies being thrown around.

    transfer portal does need some tweaking. It's messed up for a guy to be on 3 different teams in three years. That's just messed up. At least make them stay 3 years at their signing school or something.

    I look for the Power 5 to break away and form their own organization. Each conference will be between 14 and 16 teams with ND coming to uneasy truce with the ACC. That would be between 70 and 80 teams. I think all current P5 teams are safe.

    This is more than likely what will eventually happen.

    Question for someone that knows more than I do about all three teams .... in your opinion, has the portal hurt us more or helped more ?
    OXFORD, Miss. (WTVA) - Ole Miss campus police ask students to behave at future baseball games following a recent incident.
    The university said students were reportedly throwing rocks at Georgia baseball players during last weekend's series.

    It'll help baseball because we're a blue blood. We would be in DEEP **** next year if we didn't have the portal.

    I feel like it might help basketball because there are so many mid to lower level schools that produce good players to choose from. We're not going to land the big fish in the portal, but we can get that next tier of guys. Similar to baseball, we'd be in trouble next year if not for the portal.

    Football is about the same as it always has been. We may upgrade positions in a few spots, but so has the rest of our league, often times with even better players. Not many teams will be able to poach our team in baseball or basketball. We absolutely will get poached in football if we don't get with it

    Right now seems to be a confusing mess with very few rules. Instead of one and done, go to highest bidder out of HS, play one year and become free agent again. Next two or three years of "eligibility as student athlete" repeat the process. Gonna be funny when some of the high paid freshmen are complete busts or $ paid destroys the locker room. That big $ QB better have a big $ LT. I only watch the NFL now when Dak or a MSU alum is on the team. At least they have a salary cap.
