I think there is a more relevant.


balance question than competitive balance. Hypothetical example but, what if athlete A is being recruited by two schools. Goes to school 1 and then sits out first year due to surgery to correct nagging injury. After surgery and recovery athlete hits the portal and goes to school 2. While I support freedom for kids to move you can see situations developing where some schools could become rehab or minor league development options for larger schools. Schools are already functioning to a certain degree as farm systems for pro franchises and without some well thought out rules either for movement and/or compensation there is a risk that some schools could be functioning as a farm system for other schools. The landscape gets a little more blurred as the business of college sports comes a little more in focus.

  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
