Lol, I think you're taking some things out of context, but let me be clear about one thing. NIL, and its ties with the current transfer portal setup, is f***ing trash and needs to go away, and I much rather prefer any point in time before the NCAA made the mistake of saying "here's NIL, do with it what you may, I wash my hands of it and take zero responsibility for what's to come."
So no, that's not status quo and that IS something new, and it can get f***ed and I'll kindly ask anyone that wants to tell me just to accept that this is just the way things are now and that we should just shrug our shoulders and be like oh well there's nothing that can be done anymore, to get f***ed as well, and step aside and let the non-incompetent adults fix this broken situation for the high school and college athletes, that was made by incompetent adults who ultimately caved into the kids that kept demanding and crying for ice cream and presents...............
Hope that helps going forward.
P.S. As an Iowa fan, I'll continue to support the idea that my school will (continue to) do things the right way........which is by not embracing the rule changes (and telling them to get f***ed, if and when at all possible
