4Q Basket Case
- Nov 8, 2004
The transfer portal is in effect for all scholarshipped sports, not just football and men’s basketball.The portal is not the panacea that players think...only about 50% actually find another school...many give up scholarships too. Its more of a lottery than a certainty of success
A while back I read some statistics showing more athletes in the portal than all the scholarships that can be awarded in all sports — and that doesn’t include an allocation for incoming freshmen.
A LOT of kids get hurt, and there’s no doubt some of it is self-inflicted.
I also wonder what portion of them are not there by choice, but have been asked to move on by their coach — whether that’s a new coach (e.g., Deion Sanders’ first speech to the CU team), or the one they originally signed with.
