    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.

    A lot of times it is an ego thing with the coaches. If coaches would follow CJR3888 model of developing kids and not chasing rings then the system would be great. These guys do a great job of sticking to the process and along the way they will win a few games and once they get better they will win rings also. Robe didn't like travel because of the mostly play heavy, skill weak concept. CJR3888 does the opposite these kids work hard and have fun and pick and choose how often they play. This concept is proven as the area they are based out of has won a state title and just recently made it to the semi-finals.

    Thou I’m no longer in the crowd, I can’t tell you how many times I heard a parent utter towards their child playing a select sport “well, we either pay for college now or later, so it might as well be now”. Then later hear the parent be resentful, because, in their mind they’re paying twice. I have a good friend that did the baseball thing and I repeatedly told him, it’s not going to happen, his kid’s team wasn’t top flight, nobody would see him and second team all district doesn’t equate to a scholarship. A decade plus later, he’s still ____ed off, fully admitting everything except “you were right”.

    And of course, in general, the child is hearing it from home. Animosity is usually directed at college coaches who under appreciated their child, often in a sport that scholarships were split up from the get go.

    Parental egos, later manifested onto players to please mom and dad. We’ve had the “too many world champions” discussion of youth stick sports. Not the fault of coaches if parents want to spend money on junior trying to be a world champion at the lowest level of the sport.

    Yes, you are correct, never put any blame on the drug pusher.

    KB Sides in the portal, to transfer to a school for the masters program she wants that’s not offered at Bama. She will be a solid pick up for whoever gets her. Also Lexi Wagner from Oregon in portal-she was vital to the team in Lombardi's first year after taking over for Mike White.

    Itís a one time transfer rule, Iím wondering if it only applies once you dress for a game? You only get to transfer once without sitting out and I canít find clarity anywhere if this means mcaffery will have to sit at his next school? Or technically wonít bc he never played for Louisville

    That is a good question. I could be wrong, but technically he never played so should be good to go?

    It is possible but I doubt it.

    If Lexi Wagner is pre-med and a west coast girl, think Stanford is more likely than USA.
