    This is where an established coach can keep a few and the importance of making the NCAA’s is obvious. Every year will be a rebuilding year otherwise.

    Until it changes back and costs the player a year, this is the new normal. A complete cluster duck.
    ^ Accurate summation.

    Yes I believe me and you coached against a local area kid who played for Marucci. He is over in the Mississippi area. Heard he is in the portal looking to get on at UL since they have openings. Great kid, but his old man is a big turd.

    Tony was right. Select has ruined an entire generation of children. And this portal will make it worse. Spoiled rotten children.

    First, the kids switching teams left and right in select aren't the ones being recruited to play at the top D1 schools. Blaming select baseball on a failure to recruit better players isn't the systems fault, it's the coaches fault.

    Second, if a coach leaves a school for another, is he penalized? No, but before the transfer rule change the player was penalized. The higher number of transfers is due to the one time transfer rule change, not the portal.

    Third, the portal is just a way for everyone to know who is looking to transfer. Before the portal, it wasn't public knowledge but the same talks about transferring and players contacting other schools was already happening.

    Coaches don't leave at the rate kids are moving across all sports. As a simple example, Luke McAffery (Brother of Christian) is transferring to his 3rd team in 7 months, having not even played a down at Louisville where he transferred to in February. Coaches are either getting fired or they're getting a better gig. They don't move at the rate kids do. Not the same.

    You're using only 1 kid as an example and you're only thinking of head coaches. These kids are mainly not recruited by the head coach, their relationship is with the coach that recruits their area. Those coaches are on 1 year contracts and switch schools often because of that.

    Coaches don’t have 5 years to play 4....they have a lifetime to coach. We have had 3 coaches leave here before ever coaching a down that I can think of, I’m sure it’s more

    You don't have to look far to find so many more. Hell, we just got a basketball commit from a guy who's committed to at least 4 programs and played for 2 of them.

    Do you think kids should be stuck for 5 years with no chance to transfer while coaches can change schools each year?

    And we must not forget that at the heart of this issue and the main cause for ruin are the coaches in select ball.
