What if it is neither of those choices?


you neatly bucketed it to either
A. College football is a way-point to a pro carreer
B. A way to attend a certain school and you should remain there no matter what

People move on from situations that are not right for them all the time in life, this is not an indictment on them. Maybe some of these kids know this is their last shot to play at a high level and know they are not going to go pro, and maybe they want to spend those years actually playing at a school where the competition level better fits their talent instead of watching it from the bench. Or maybe they feel like they don't belong with their team/school for a variety of other reasons. In many cases the Transfer Portal helps all parties, both the school and player's situations are often better off for the transfer. This does not make either party the bad guy.

  Yes, but we didn't fill that form out. -- st_andrew 08/12/2019 12:18PM
  Makes sense -- crazylane 08/12/2019 2:38PM
  Again, that's the issue. Why is there more than 1 form? -- Vienna_Hokie 08/12/2019 1:26PM
  That seems a little too far IMO -- Vienna_Hokie 08/12/2019 1:33PM
  Seems to me that the portal.... -- 2hhoop3 08/12/2019 11:56AM
  Agreed ** -- Wild Turkey 08/12/2019 1:10PM
  When combined with the 4 game RS rule, you are spot on -- Vienna_Hokie 08/12/2019 12:02PM
  Weren't they prior to the portal transfers? ** -- likehokies 08/12/2019 11:21AM

  What was the stated purpose of the portal -- likehokies 08/12/2019 10:37AM
  To distract us from the real issue of paying players -- Baltimore Hokie 08/12/2019 2:17PM
  How has it not? I think every aspect is better. -- 48zip 08/12/2019 10:40AM
