Southern Utah Basketballers, Prestige Means Squat
Streamers don't care about Jay Leno.
Mr. Beast doesn't know what Good Morning America is...
He might not know who Jimmy Fallon is.
People who are watching Tik Tok Jocks and Youtube stars like Mr. Beast have no idea that ABC and NBC and CBS are spending hundreds of millions of dollars to try and get them to watch Young Sheldon or whatever lame sitcoms they have going now.
The networks carry zero caché anymore. Ted Koppel, Dan Rather...there's no such thing as prestige brands in the TikTok / YouTube era.
Just like there's no such thing as prestige college basketball in the NIL era.
Krewsewski-ville is a ghost town. Duke is irrelevant this March. Nobody cares. Coach K is gone.
Jim Boeheim, gone.
John Callipari, the one guy who used to be able to pay players, hasn't won a title since 2012!
The reason Miami is in the final four isn't because they're a blue blood, or because of program prestige, it's because they're paying Nigel Pack $800,000 dollars!
Not one top 3 seed is in the Final Four.
This is like when the Tonight Show's ratings lost to The Wiggles.
Prestige is dead.
Mr. Beast is a billionaire.
And FAU is in the Final Four.
Southern Utah high school basketball players, there's never been a better time to play college basketball. You can get paid. You can transfer whenever you want. And you don't have to play for a blue blood to go to the Final Four. Keep practicing!
