Is USC Overhyping NIL Deal?

USC announced this morning wide receiver Jordan Addison and Tuli Tuipulotu will drive Mercedes-Benz S500s this season. The cars are valued at $120,000 each per USC.

The deal “was struck between BLVD and Fletcher Jones Motorcars.”

“We want to do something unlike you’ve seen before,” BLVD chief Michael Calvin Jones said.

REACTION: OK, let’s cut through the hype. USC coaches have had cars from Fletcher Jones FOR DECADES. I’m going to repeat that: USC coaches have had cars from Fletcher Jones for decades. I doubt BLVD even negotiated the deal. Someone else in the athletic dept. who already deals with Jones probably did.

So don’t act like BLVD pulled off a coup by expanding an already existing relationship with a car dealer that has strong USC ties.

Oh, they got cars for the Biletnikoff Award winner and best defensive player? Congrats. The rich get richer. BLVD claims it has gotten hundreds of thousands in deals for linemen. So how come they don’t show them?

Instead, this pablum gets spread below:

  5. This best part of this blog was in the comment section – humorous as well as some times insightful. It’s now just one idiot with multiple screen names posting as others often and making crass and racist remarks. Meanwhile, others engaged in sophomoric political bickering. All in all, it’s rather stupid as the real contributors have left. I will join them and hope others do as well until Scott Wolf cleans up this site.

  7. Scooter,

    Has anyone thought this out. This is a joke. Cart dealer gives a car to a kid who can barely shave let alone what it means to own a $120,000 car, which is marked up about 1,000,000%. Kid takes the car. Question: Who pays for the car tax and registration? That is another $14,000. Who pays for the insurance? And once the car goes 300 miles, will the kid call Fletcher and say, “Bro, i got no gas. Get me filled”. Fletcher will say, “Son, i just gave you a car, it is your responsibility to fill it”. After three or four years and it has 48,000 miles, will Fletcher give him a new one or does he still ride in the ol’ sled given four years ago? This is a joke.

      the kid receives $120,000 gift or income. How will he report it on his IRS form? One of Fuerer Biden’s henchmen, err Gestapo, the IRS agent will say to the kid, son, that car you received is $120,000 gift. You owe 20% tax for the car, so you owe $24,000 in Federal Tax. You can make payments at 3% compounded monthly. Who will bail the kid out?

  9. When I was at USC a friend of mine borrowed his roommates beat up used car (the car most college students drive) to go and buy cigarettes at that 7-11 up on Figueroa near Adams. My buddy was making a left to come out of the lot back on Fig and wrecked the car. Totaled.

    We laughed about that for years. Told him he should have bought his smokes from Spudnuts.

    Can you imagine all of these “buddies” now asking to borrow these Mercedes?

  12. Not good!! How do these players stay motivated for an entire season.
    What about the other kids who are starters, and are driving a Honda with 250,000 miles on it. To me college football is headed down the toilet if something is not done to tone this down. I see USC having team chemistry issues this year despite the talent that has been brought in.

    If it continues all the universities should just pay each player a salary based on performance just like the NFL, and cut out all these gifts What’s next???? Free Agency is already here in college football it’s called the transfer portal, but really the same thing.
