College sports are no more. 

It's now just a bunch of sleazy Name Image and Likeness collectives bidding against each other for 17-year-olds.

BYU is entering the BIG 12 who has the biggest swinging stick in the region forking out cash. T. Boone Pickens.

This guy is lousy with oil money, and has spent millions to build up his alma mater Oklahoma State.

Here's who BYU needs to step up in order to compete with T. Boone.

MITT ROMNEY - Net worth: $200 million

Mitt could have bought BYU Arch Manning, Shedeur Sanders, Caleb Williams, and maybe have convinced Zach Wilson to transfer from the Jets to come back to BYU.

Romney is the 800 pound gorilla that the Royal Blue Collective needs. Get his Venmo ID and start sending requests.

BLAKE RONEY - NUSKIN | Net worth: $200 million

Blake Roney is a part owner of NUSKIN.

He's one of the biggest wigs in the BYU alum pool. He sponsors BYU athletics and the Jazz. He's already shelling out dough for the Cougars, but now that there's the NIL, he could be well on his way to being BYU's T. Boone.

RYAN SMITH - QUALTRICS | Net worth: $1.5 Billion

Uh oh.

We buried the lead. Smith is worth conservatively $1.5 Billion according to Google.

He owns the Jazz. Make him the owner of BYU. He'll have RGIII hired as a consultant in about three seconds.

Ken Jennings is my favorite. He made boat loads on Jeopardy. He might not have the funds of the previous three, but the highest GPA kid on BYU should definitely receive the "Ken Jennings Scholarship"

Wally Joyner is the guy to get some cash for the baseball team.

And Ziggy Ansah, or a million other football alumni, I'm sure are gonna be forking some cash over to the Royal Blue Collective.
