It’s no secret that the NCAA’s recent changes allowing athletes to profit from their name, image, and likeness have altered the state of college football. And Nebraska Cornhuskers head coach Matt Rhule got pretty candid about just how much those changes have impacted the sport.

During a press conference this week, Matt Rhule revealed that the going rate for a “good” quarterback in the transfer portal is between $1 million and $2 million and that some teams even have players that are getting paid between $6 million and $7 million.

“Make no mistake: a good quarterback in the portal costs $1 million to $1.5 million to $2 million right now,” Rhule said according to On3. “So just so we’re on the same page, right? Let’s make sure we all understand what’s happening. There are some teams that have $6-7 million players playing for them.”

But Rhule isn’t necessarily pleased with this development in college football. While he’s perfectly fine with players profiting and making money, saying “they’re the ones out there doing the work,” he doesn’t think that teams should be able to lure away other team’s players with lucrative NIL packages.

“It is what it is,” Rhule said. “I would not let people be able to buy people off another roster. It’s real simple. You recruit somebody, you develop them for two years, and then someone comes in and takes them, and then that coach gets fired. It’s like, he actually did a pretty good job. So, that part of it. I think the players getting a piece of their name, image, and likeness makes sense to me. 100 percent makes sense to me. there’s not one part of me that’s ever had a problem with it.”

It’s safe to say that college football has changed quite a bit.
