Randy Moss really did say it best: “Straight cash, homie.”

We’ve been hearing story after story about how Name, Image and Likeness (NIL) has completely changed college football and how it operates, and now we’re starting to get some video of how flashy these kids are living off this money.

Recently, I blogged about Colorado Buffaloes quarterback Shedeur Sanders (Deion Sanders’ son) getting a Tesla Cybertruck that costs around $100,000 — you can check out that scene here. In this piece, we have another example of NIL riches, this time in Gainesville, Florida — the home of the Gators.

Michael Hickernell, an alumnus of the University of Florida, was walking through the campus of the college when he started recording the parking lot at the Heavener Football Training Center. And what did he see?

Dodge after Dodge after Dodge after Dodge … and every single one of them cost a pretty penny.


I’m glad to see all of these collegiate student-athletes getting paid, but I do have one question: What’s up with all of the Dodges?

Nothing against Dodge, I have a Dodge myself (though nothing as flashy as these guys), but I’m just curious to know why every player is vibin’ with a Dodge. It makes me think maybe these players got deals through Gainesville Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, something that’s been done in the past.

I don’t know, but regardless, get your paper, youngbloods.
