    Or, go back to the way it used to be. Freshmen could not play, they had to essentially sit a year, although they played other schools's freshmen teams. After their freshmen year let them transfer were ever they want. They would then have 4 years to play 3 at their new school.

    I look forward to Saban finding all the loop holes and ways to exploit the portal and use it to his advantage and become the best at it. Then and only then will the NCAA close the portal lol

    True, even in the NFL a restricted free agent’s former team receives a compensatory pick. I would equate an undergrad to a restricted free agent in this time period of the NCAA.

    I don't know what the restitution would be when the labor market is wholly an open market. The NFL controls the means for labor acquisition so they can repay a loss in effectively "future labor credits."

    I reckon the NCAA could allow teams to sign additional players above the 25 maximum if you lose players to transfer. Really complicates the roster management math but serious competitors already pay folks to manage that anyway.
    I owe it to the people to have a signature...so here goes nothing!

    You transfer, you sit a year. I miss the old days.

    I agree with the overwhelming sentiment on this thread, completely. But does anyone know for sure Kyriq didn't have a "legitimate" waiver situation?

    I don’t know what role it played in his decision to transfer, but Aaron Suttles on WJOX implied (long before he entered the portal) that Kyriq had a difficult time “finding his way to the classroom”, adding comments along the line of “there is great academic support for athletes at Alabama. If you can’t get to class, that’s on you.”

    My god that was just terrifying!!!!

    He just leaned forward and his hands and feet just started twitching/convulsing uncontrollably as he collapsed and they kept moving like that with him on the ground....

    I hope he's ultimately okay but that did not look good at all....

    Initial reports are that McDonald may have suffered a seizure. McDonald’s mother stated he does have a seizure history.

    Prayers for the young man.

    My late brother had epilepsy. Seizures can be a terrifying thing. I remember as child the first time I witnessed him having a seizure. Shocking is an understatement.
