    No but they get notoriety and great satisfaction. Some folks feel they have enough.

    a short list of rich people familiar to WF fans who gave money away with no expectation of a positive ROI

    NIL very similar. Might donors expect some return? Sure. Positive return? Probably not, with the exception of the few national deals like the Cavinder apparel contracts

    Sure and these same people will probably continue to donate to the university. That doesnít mean they will enter into inflated contracts with individual players where they will pay the players for a grant of rights.

    not sure what you are arguing here. rich people always have and will continue to give money away for vanity's sake. It's happening right now across the NIL landscape.

    Saban says Deion Sanders paid a player $1.5M in NIL to attend Jackson State
    https://www.yahoo.com/news/nick-saba...032414510.html

    In video, he explains how Alabama pools its money for players. Claims A&M for buying their last recruiting class. Rails against players for being money motivated while he's pulling in 8 figures.

    Pretty sure the rumor about Travis Hunter getting $1.5M from Barstool was debunked.

    I guess Deion will have to return his blue jacket.

    Duke is basically becoming a G-League affiliate. Scheyer may not even be a good coach, but he can overwhelm other teams with talent to win 25 games a year at least.

    Come to Duke and turn your NBA lottery talent into G-League level play.

    Crazy. Bates looked like a sure-fire high lottery pick: 5 star offered by everyone; 247 rated him as the #5 recruit in the 2021 HS class, the top 8:

    1. Chet Homgren (#2 pick in the 2022 NBA draft)
    2. Paolo Banchero (#1 pick in the 2022 NBA draft)
    3. Shaedon Sharpe (#7 pick in the 2022 NBA draft)
    4. Jaeden Hardy (went to the G League) (#37 pick in the 2022 NBA draft)
    5. Bates
    6. Jalen Duren (#13 pick in the 2022 NBA draft)
    7. Jabari Smith (#3 pick in the 2022 NBA draft)
    8. Patrick Baldwin (#28 pick in the 2022 NBA draft - Baldwin had a worse year in college than Bates)

    Bates will now be toiling in the MAC.

    I am surprised a P5 school didn't take a chance that they could keep Bates healthy for a season.

    They tried. Bates just went back home to Ypsilanti. Stan Heath is his coach.

    Had heard the Michigan State was the leader until Bates picked E Michigan. If not for the one and done rule, Bates would've been a lottery pick.

    did he originally commit to MSU?

    I suspect Bates camp knows he has been exposed a bit and didn't want to risk a P5 flop of a season.
