West Virginia Mountaineers at Kansas State Wildcats 2/14/2022

The first year of the athlete compensation era in college sports evolved into almost everything the NCAA didn't want when it gave the green light last summer.
What originally was envisioned as a way for college athletes to make some pocket money based on their celebrity has turned into bidding wars for football and men's basketball recruits and transfers. Pack made one of the first big splashes in April. (AP Photo/Reed Hoffmann, File)
