Re: Football player enters transfer portal

A college kid who plays basketball for your favorite school (and doesn’t get paid to do so) owes you absolutely nothing, and if this is the first generation to realize that, good on em. Doesn’t get paid, are you trying to stir the pot? Tuition, fees, books, housing, food, travel, hotels, media expo...

Re: Teams Reactions

Yeah, the Marco rumors have been going on ever since Smith left and we haven't heard any official news on it. If he leaves it clearly wasn't an easy decision.

Re: This just sucks, come on Rolllie

I blame Smith more for this. When you have already betrayed your former team by going to their rival, the least you can do is not gut their roster as well to add insult to injury. Smith is completely dead to me now. There should be a non-compete type clause in coaches contracts that when they leave...

Not to my knowledge, but there has been a lot of talk about "following the coach that recruited you" in the assumed belief that Worster is transferring to Utah, so I was using the example of a star ...

Re: We need to accept that it's a two way street

Leaving for Utah as opposed to a school 1500 miles away that I haven't heard of makes a difference......at least for me. It makes a difference to fans, but in both scenarios it’s just players following coaches. Marco and Rollie don’t hate Utah like we do. And as fans posting here, losing coaches an...

Re: Big name in the transfer portal

It's interesting, with all the attention being on the transfer portal, maybe the smart approach would be to focus heavily on high school talent. You might be able to find some gems that were otherwise overlooked. Same thing for junior colleges - just a thought. I've had this same thought. Both HS a...

Players now do want to play right away more than in generations past.

He was starting as a true freshman and his role would have b...
