Yo… NIL is fvcking awesome. Name-Image-Likeness has changed the game for college football and I am here for it. It changed it so much that paying kids is straight up public knowledge.
Charlie Batch, who spent 15 years as an NFL quarterback after attending EMU, tweeted: “Hey (Caleb Williams), have you considered Eastern Michigan, @EMUFB? If not, you SHOULD. GameAbove Capital is prepared to pay you ONE MILLION DOLLARS for one year! Are you ready be an EAGLE?”
Williams is coming off a true freshman season in which he passed for 1,916 yards and 22 touchdowns at Oklahoma after taking over for shitshow asshole Spencer Rattler (now at South Carolina).
The former five-star recruit was part of the Heisman discussion by mid-season and then realized he could open the bidding for his services and entered the transfer portal. With numbers like those versus Big 12 competition, schools with more national buzz and deeper pockets will undoubtedly soon outdo the million-dollar offer from Eastern Michigan.
I wanna see all the bids become public. Oh man, this is amazing.
Batch joined CapStone Holdings in late December as the company’s Senior VP of Strategic Investments. Though this looks more like a strategic investment into the EMU football program.
