I'm curious as to what percentage of the names are players the team really doesn't want to lose, what percentage are players whose leaving is no big deal, and what percentage would cause the coach to say, "Good riddance."?

1. Look at where the transfer lands. Is he moving up or even lateral, perhaps closer o home.

2. If the player is moving down, that kind of speaks for itself.

3. Could be a combination of 1 and 2, with the added instance of the player not finding a landing spot at all.

I thought the recruiting of a high school kid was nauseating, advertising the cookie cutter comment about how blessed they are to receive offer X from School Z. Now it’s repeating itself several times over by the same kids when they go into the portal, first saying how blessed they were to have been given a chance at that school, then to announce they’re open for offers, then announce which offers they have received and ultimately announce their selection...until they want out and repeat the cycle all over again. BTW, if you loved it so much at the school that gave you such a chance, WTF you leaving? 03-puke

maybe the "portal transfer" will become like the NFL draft where know-it-all "talking heads" go on for weeks talking about who will draft whom, when everyone knows it never falls as predicted, and when some first round draft picks will be busts while some lower round picks and even undrafted free agents will shine. I can almost hear it now: "Mark my words, take it to the bank, Joe Smith will sign with Duke and be an All-American BAAA-BEEEE!"
