I attended a pregame event before last night's game. Coach P is a very dynamic speaker. The issue of transfer loaded teams and NIL was discussed. In short, many transfers are looking for the best NIL deal. Minnesota can't compete for the top transfers in that arena. Coach P said she needs more NIL money to compete for the transfers she needs and to retain her current star players. On the way out of the room, I stopped to talk to someone from the athletics department. I asked if it was better to donate to the Golden Gopher fund for basketball or to contribute to Dinkytown Athletics. The response was that in the current environment it was better to donate to Dinkytown Athletics. I'm sure it was hard to say that. But, those are the facts that we are dealing with for now.
