Yea, lots we will never know. Texas essentially had 14 scholarship players this year with NIL adding those extra 2, and will likely have 14 or 15 again using NIL. We tried using NIL for Caffey, but Texas apparently outbid us. NIL couldn’t keep Madi here for next year (don’t know if people tried). Reading between the lines of the Coach-Podraza interview where it was all explained, I wonder if there was enough NIL for 1 or 2 players, but the coach did not want to say yes to one and leave the others behind. Each program is deciding how mercenary to be. And volleyball at every school except NU loses money, so maybe large NIL money for VB is hard to get. Yea, lots we don’t know.
