Welcome to The Ranch Collective

An NIL Collective Supporting McNeese State Student Athletes

Creating New Opportunities
for our Cowboys and Cowgirls

With the passage of Louisiana’s name, image, and likeness (NIL) legislation, student athletes in our state can now receive compensation for their publicity rights. This landmark legislation is a literal game changer.

The Ranch Collective understands this new opportunity and was founded to support McNeese State student athletes. Your willingness to join our cause will allow the Ranch Collective to compensate our outstanding student athletes for licensing and the use of their publicity rights.

The Ranch Collective is also the best way to partner our student athletes with businesses that want to use Cowboys standouts in their advertising. We can help in devising ad campaign concepts, drawing up contracts, and ensuring everything is compliant with both McNeese State and the NCAA.

About The Ranch Collective

Supporting McNeese State University Athletes and Ensuring Championship Programs for Years to Come.

McNeese State Athletics’ focus is very clear—to be the top program in the Southland Conference and win championships. We want the program to be able to recruit and retain the best student athletes possible to support this quest.

NIL is changing the competitive landscape of college athletics. Our student athletes will want to be fairly compensated for their publicity rights. If we can harness the giving power of our community businesses, alumni, and supporters, we can quickly rise to the top of the conference—across the board.

We want to make it easy for Pokes Nation to be a part of this initiative, and The Ranch Collective is excited to join forces with stakeholders who are ready to make this monumental initiative happen.

Thank You to Our Corporate Partners

The Ranch Collective and the support we provide our Cowboys student athletes would not be possible without our sponsors.
