Hall of Famer
It feels weird trying to play peacemaker, but I have to say I agree with both @jessej and @Quentin Daniels on this one.
Nothing wrong with young people believing in themselves and wanting to take a shot at playing for a better program and/or in a higher-level league. Anyone who has ever changed jobs knows what that’s like, and it doesn’t always work out. There’s risk involved in putting your name in the portal and that should be understood by all parties.
At the same time, a lot of these kids are getting terrible advice or being outright deceived to go into the portal based on the promise of something that isn’t real. That’s unfortunate because getting a free college education is a big deal and we’re doing young people a disservice by making it seem like an afterthought to NIL and instant gratification.
So endeth my Ted talk.
No issues w/any of that. None at all.
Sleeperpick's keyboard-warrior schtick of constantly bashing kids gets old though. Non-stop w/that guy.
Who remembers him declaring the A10 Rookie of the Year a bust before he even set foot on campus?
