Transfer portal and NIL have become a joke. Long term sustainability for both is limited. Has to be. I'm all for allowing kids to transfer. How many 18 year olds make good decisions? So let everyone transfer one time within their first two years without having to sit out a year. No penalty. Transferring as an upperclassman will require sitting out a year unless there are extending circumstances, such as an illness at home, head coach leaving, etc. Limited reasons for not having sit out a year if you leave as a junior or senior. Limit transfers to 2 times over 4 years for each kid, unless for extenuating circumstances and by petition only. Over 1600 kids in the transfer portal this year is laughable. NIL is totally being abused. Who saw that coming? Best comment I heard recently was that these kids are actually being paid to play and not really for their name, image or likeness. Have you seen some of the "efforts" put forth by so-called sponsors to live within the NIL rules that really have zero positive impact on the business/supporter who is paying? It's a joke. Don't kid yourself either if you don't believe that schools are not involved in these negotiations or at least setting up the situations or greasing the skids for kids being paid. This will be short lived. U. of Miami will be the poster child here for change. What's wrong with a four year full ride with a grand or two a month for pocket money? And maybe even a lease on a "reasonable" car while on the team, for each kid on the roster. Isn't that enough? The argument that "someone is making money off of me" doesn't cut it. So what? Welcome to the real world. So as a college athlete going in you know the set-up. Live like a king for 4 years and get a college degree. If you don't like it, skip the college experience, move on and get a job. Then the only one who makes money from your efforts will be your employer. That's how the real world works. Life's a b!tch. Sorry, I simply don't possess much empathy for the student athlete argument here.
