Not public opinion, but the attention it was given to the what was going on. It very well known that A&M didn't produce the class they got with NIL last year. It was a bag game with a lot of promises. There have been some talk about those promises not being paid out as some of the big donors got nervous with the attention and the IRS talk (this was the biggest hold up).

With that attention, A&M has been scrambling to cover their tracks, get NIL setup publicly (legitimately) as a a lot of FOIA request were / are happening and pressure on A&M to show their cards in the NIL game. A&M is going through the process of setting up NIL programs like what Texas, Tech, and others currently have. This a very tedious and legal process to make sure all the t's are crossed and i's are dotted plus get it approved by compliance. I know the guys that setup several of the Texas NIL and the process was crazy. This is important when it is as public when these programs are public. Saban knew exactly what he was doing for taking that fight public.

From the A&M side, there has been a lot of pressure on what is going on in recruiting (Class is currently sitting at #59 with only 6 kids - The average per player is higher than Texas though). Jimbo even had to answer it at SEC media days with what is going on. Now it seems the donors who funnel that part of the program have committed to pushing their chips back in the game and are becoming a player in a lot of recruitments now to try to turn the tide. This is great news for A&M. Money whipping kids is the name of the game now. Before NIL, 10-20% of your class was taking money to come to your school. Now its almost 100% of the class asking what they are getting as they can legally take money. That is what has changed.

I am not bashing A&M at all, as they put their balls on the table last year. I have said what I have seen from A&M is an all-in commitment to be good in football and I am **** jealous of that commitment. With what they are building there is reason they shouldn't be competing year in and year out now. I am just providing some information I have heard and it comes from two different sources on both sides of the table (A&M and Texas).

Edit - Just wanted to add, I am not saying Texas or any other school are not dropping bags (paying a kid under the table) as well to their NIL games. A good chunk of what is going on is on the up and up with the NIL programs that have been run through compliance but I am sure it is going on. The known NIL programs are there to offer compliance protection from the school. Every NIL deal that gets done has to be signed off of it by the school.

Didn’t read this whole thing, but your class this year is a bag game and your paying guys not to go on visits and dropping bags to commit…..I mean how could a 5-7 team that lost 6 straight and lost to Kansas ever sign a good class without it?

See since I said it that makes it true. Cheaters.

Everybody dropping bags, everybody. Everybody. We will land a #5-8 ranked class with only 20 dudes, full of quality to go along with the massive amounts of studs from last year. Don’t worry.

Saw several tweets today on the A&M team wide NIL. Iím still a fan of just pay every D1 player $25k a year across the board and call it a day. Glad to see the ladies getting in on it as well.

To answer your question, because it is Texas. No matter how ****ty the program is dudes want to play here. It happens every single year. Texas has been terrible for over a decade and still pulled in great classes. Arch has a lot to with the success of this class and Sark still has some new car smell he can sale to these kids.



I hope Texas is. I do know we have a structured NIL game that is very well funded into the future to support whatever bag game there is. I also don't mind putting my name on what I wrote because I trust the sources it came from and I was just passing on a message that I thought was very positive to A&M if guys had questions why it has started off slow.



It is a totally different game now-a-days. You won't hear me bragging about getting X player over another school, or a big H2H win, or where the class finished in the rankings. It is like paying the hottest girl in the school to go to prom with you. The only thing that matters what you do after prom.

First paragraph is spot on. It's so hard for Aggy to realize that. It isn't rocket science.

If they keep the same talent then in a year or two they should be pretty darn good. Still need to recruit some high-end linebackers.

Iím shocked that Hale isnít a Horn by now. The longer this recruitment plays out the worse I feel about it for Texas. Heís going to Bama this weekend.

Play the game and the rest is nonsense! You know for a fact bags are dropping and have always dropped in atx. But when another team does it they have done something wrong or didnít do it the right way and have to cover their tracks. Embarrassing post in your part. Be better!

I’m shocked that Hale isn’t a Horn by now. The longer this recruitment plays out the worse I feel about it for Texas. He’s going to Bama this weekend.

#1 recruit in the country isnt leaving southern Cal and Rileys wide open offense for College Station and Jimbo's outdated offense scheme. He will go and have a good time at a pool party but that's the end of it.

Yes, Texas did. The guys I know that are well connected are still questioning the decision to take his commitment. I doubt he ever steps foot on campus.

My point being that A&M was sitting idle for a lot of this time waiting on all of the talk from last year to blow over and get better organized on the backside to cover their ***. The good news for Aggies that has all of you going crazy is it looks like the flood gates are back open and A&M should be getting good news soon. The whole point on my post was good things are about to start happening for A&M is what I was told and the reason why it was going to happen.

The dam has burst in college football. Everyone is going to have to accept the fact that everyone pays in some way. Every kid is now asking for something and legally they can in some fashion. It wasn't that A&M was the only school last year dropping bags, they decided to go way above market value on these kids and swept them all up. That is what teams are ****** about, not that A&M paid them cause they all do but it was the numbers. Hell, ETM just said find out what Texas is paying and double it on Hale. That is what they did. Teams are still dropping bags, but they better have it covered on the backside with NIL.

Nelson is holding USC feet to the fire to make sure they follow through. Lots of chatter that Addison (the WR from Pitt) was offered a boat load and they haven't came through on anything yet so they are rumblings about it through the recruiting game. I would be shocked if Nelson committed to A&M as he has been attached at the hip to Riley for two years. At the same time, in today's world nothing would shock me when you are talking about the dollars being thrown around.

There has always been pay for play all over college athletics; however, it was a very small percent of the guys that were actually getting money. Now it is open to everybody and there is a legal work around with NIL.

The reason the for the "cover your tracks" is these dollar amounts are starting to get so out of hand, that is when the IRS comes into play as its harder to hide the money. Everyone thought bitcoin was the answer, but now players are seeing the money they were offered through bitcoin not be worth as much and asking for more. It is hard to hide some of these dollar amounts.

Edit - I personally do not believe all the Bitcoin / Thumb Drive talk even though people who I trust say it is real.

There will always be a combination of bags and NIL going forward, but boosters are going to have to play it smart in how it is presented now. The cash in the McDonalds bags works for $10K, but not for $250K.

He jumped ahead of Manning in only the ESPN rankings. Arch has been the #1 player for ESPN, 247, On3, and Rivals for a couple of years. ESPN bumped him to #2, but the other three services still have Arch as their #1 player.

OR...The biggest recruiting weekend of the year - the Annual "Pool Party" (which has essentially been on the schedule since last year's pool party) - is this weekend. The list of 5 starts attending, committed or otherwise, is extensive.

Just like last year, recruiting momentum and commitments will start increasing after this weekend. But it's convenient that (two days before the pool party) the "money flow has suddenly opened back up" - a narrative that will certainly be "evidenced" by the commitments that start coming in next week.

Or it is a combination of the two??? Aggy and hopefully UT have figured out the NIL deal and are using it to their advantage. If it is within the rules as they sit today, who cares???

Well If I had the time to post this two weeks ago, I would have but hey you are entitled to push your own narrative.

Nelson wasn't even on the radar two weeks ago and now its a weekend in C-Stat for him when I was told this info.

I guess I missed the point here. I was hearing that A&M was about to start ramping up and was passing that along as good news for the Ags. Most of yall have not wrapped your head around what is happening and will continue to happen with college athletics. NIL changed the game forever. Most believe it will make the bag game go away now the amounts are getting so insane so that is why the strong base of NIL is a must for schools to have setup.

Yes. Did you not see what he did last year? He just picks and chooses his five stars. Almost not fair.

Ags flip #1 QB. sips have another abysmal year, Manning decommits, others follow. TBH whorn melts down, calls for Sark’s head.

In other words, just more of the same.

aggy is about to go on a solid run of championships if that is the case. You guys will be unstoppable. You should put down some dinero in Vegas, it's clearly a sure thing. I guess 2022 is as good as any to start?

If a booster (not a school) wants to pay a player that's within the rules, and I haven't seen any limits in the new rule.

I 100% guarantee that the boosters with this much money have lawyers and accountants that will take care of the player with the IRS.

I'd imagine the kid would be set up as owner of an LLC and file taxes just like any other business, would be the smart way to do it.

There is nothing to hide anymore.

You can not just walk up to a kid and pay him money. Any NIL deal has to be approved by the schools compliance department. It has to fall under the NIL guidelines and can not be a pay for play (even though they technically are).

The players and the tax implications will be something to keep an eye on.

EDIT - Actually they can have a booster walk up and give them money, but that is against the rules and the old bag game that has been around forever. In the past, this as reserved for a few players only.

You're right that it could get messy real quick, the players are going to need lawyers and accountants. Good thing all these big schools have plenty of lawyering and accounting alumni.

Yes cause all Cali kids cut their vacation to Hawaii short to fly all the way to 105 degree College Station for a fun pool party. The school he's committed to is having a similar recruiting event this weekend. Itís a good sign he's making his way to campus, especially when his good friend and fellow USC commit Zach Branch has been on Texas A&M campus multiple times.
