Discussion Board #3
NIL (Name, Image, Likeness) Legislation has made huge impacts in the recruiting, retention, and financial situations of both NCAA Division-I athletes and institutions.
A.) How do you believe it has affected athletes and institutions at the D-II and D-III levels?
B.) What are some steps would you like to see implemented to enhance NIL opportunities for D-II and D-III athletes?
Keep in mind to think of this not just as a student or student-athlete… but as if you were an administrator and how these decisions might affect your department, institution, and other schools.
1st, please write the response to the main discussion board requirement and then reply to the 2 students Which I will Sharing Their response with you.
Student number one
I believe that NIL deals have certainly affected all levels of collegiate athletics including division two and division three. I am from a small town where typically all of the athletic teams from both high schools have numerous future college athletes across all levels. My friends that have committed to division two/division three schools have deals because of the small town atmosphere in which they attend school. I think this makes the NIL deal scenario unique for small school athletes. I also believe that the deals will help with retention rates of student-athletes. If I were to be an administrator at Guilford College in the athletics department then I would raise awareness of the NIL deals to hopefully keep athletes within our program. Division two institutions can give out athletic scholarships, but division three cannot. Athletes in division three tend to quit more than higher level programs and I believe the NIL would curve this statistic. I also believe lower division athletes have another unique aspect in regards to NIL deals. Some programs are in small towns that are highly involved within that institution such as Randolph-Macon College and Campbell University. The towns in which the institutions are located are known as college towns. I think these types of places aid the student-athlete experience in regards to NIL. For example, one of my friends plays football at Campbell which is a very small division one school. He has gotten opportunities to make NIL deals due to the local businesses around the college.
If I were an administrator I would like to see a couple steps taken the enhance NIL opportunities for my athletes. First, I think it would be a good idea to implement incentives to the amount of NIL deals a school can attain. This would increase the amount of opportunities athletes would have. If a local business were to provide a deal for an athlete, I believe that business should get season tickets or free merchandise, etc. Another method that would increase opportunities of NIL is to recognize businesses and companies at games in which the institution’s athletes represent. For example, let’s says Bojangles strikes a deal with an athlete. At halftime and before/after the game, I think the business should be recognized. This would be free promotion for the business so I believe others would look at this opportunity and try to strike a deal with an athlete to increase marketing for themselves.
Student number two
A. Coming from a players’ perspective of playing at the DIII level and knowing many players at the DII level; most of us if not all feel the same way about NIL deals. Players at larger institutions such as Division I are more prone to receive NIL deals because of better recognition and the higher amount of revenue. Lower level institutions don’t sell as many tickets, have the same amount of fans, or have as many students that attend that institution. Therefore, the players don’t get half the recognition as Division I and wouldn’t receive the same NIL deals worth the high amounts that they receive. Unless, a specific Division II institution is well known or a player on that team has big platform because of his high rated performance. Division III institutions honestly feel left out regardless but don’t actually feel it’s necessary to have an upset attitude towards NIL deals because we’re already playing to play and not too much worried about our player likeness.
B. Steps I would you like to see implemented to enhance NIL opportunities for D-II and D-III athlete are getting more media recognition between commentators and talk show host. The reasoning is because people need to understand there is more to the game of sports than just Division I, the famous headlining players, and the hall of fame. People have to also understand sometimes players all may have the same goal in getting to the NFL or playing in some type of professional league but doing what it takes to get there may and will guide us all through different journeys!
