Default Clemson has work to do to compete with SC on baseball NIL

We are working to change that but there is a lot of work to do. NIL is a game changer for baseball. Hope the Clemson fanbase makes sure South Carolina doesn't have a big advantage now.

Robert, have they made public what kind of NIL deals SC baseball players have signed? Is it like a 50% scholarship or even greater?

No they don't make these public. I know some info as Dear Old Clemson worked to keep one of the players from going there this summer.

I can tell you they are using the NIL to make scholarship cost disappear plus put some money in players pockets after that in some cases.

We have a number we need to hit at Clemson to eliminate the scholarship debt for players. This needs to be done to make the Tigers competitive again.

I am glad that we now have NIL to combat the endowments that many programs use. There is no way that we could compete with that. Yes, there will always be more programs that can give more $ but I am hopeful that we are moving in the right direction. And Dear Old Clemson seems to be bridging that gap to help us stay competitive.

Dear Old Clemson is closing a basketball deal right now. We will likely have a team event in October. Tiger Impact has done some good things for basketball already.

That's weird bc Gamecock Insiders claim Clemson is ahead in the NIL game. I don't know if NIL is viewed as a whole or if it is viewed by sport though.

Can athletic departments share NIL money like a pool account?

Athletic departments have nothing to do with NIL. NIL is all outside the University.
