NIL tournament

What does the group think about the NIL tournament in Las Vegas that will pay teams 1 million towards their NIL fund?  It has 8 teams: Houston, Oregon, Texas AM, Notre Dame, Rutgers, San Diego State, Creigton and Alabama.  Pretty solid field.  Next year it could expand to 16 teams.

Now early season tournaments are supporting the NIL.

Here's a little more detail on the subject.  It is changing the way college basketball will be handled in the out-of-conference games and make it harder for mid-majors to get guarantee games if the P4 schools go to these "MTE" events.

The winning team also gets another million, so they could make 2 million for their NIL deals.  It sure takes a load off the AD, Coach or whoever has to help raise money for the NIL program.  This tournament continues to give the Power 5 schools even more advantages over the mid majors.  As a fan it will be exciting to see more interesting match ups in the non conference schedule (maybe Houston vs Alabama).  So this tournament has it's ups and downs, like most things in life.
