Pat Narduzzi takes the baton from Randy Edsall....now can Randy find some cover? Probably not.



“You look at that transfer portal going around the country, it’s ugly," Narduzzi said, per The Pittsburgh Tribune-Review. "They really should call it the 'Ugly Toilet Portal.' It’s not good for a lot of kids...

"When you look at the amount of kids who transfer from Power 5 (schools), how many really make it back to Power 5? They don’t. They’re going down (to a smaller school or lower classification), or they’re asking to see if they can come back here if they did go in the portal.”

Here's the part that hurts the kid the most:

While a player entering their name in the transfer portal means they intend to explore their options, it does not necessarily mean they will leave. A player is free to withdraw his name at any time. However, schools are under no obligation to keep a player on scholarship once they enter the portal.

Not good. Once a kid explores the school he's currently at can bolt on him.. Not a good look for colleges... Cattle hurding at its finest.. Sad stuff....

I can think of a certain school that might have had 60 kids in the portal if you were truly allowed to put one foot out the door and keep one in the program. Does your wife let you browse?

If the kid is not all in, the school should be able to move on as well.

That's why usually have a hs coach reach out to other college coaches to see if they're interested before entering the portal.

Here's an electric Philly RB that did a year at Salisbury prep school before taking a scholarship to Marshall now in the portal after one year. The staff had some follows on him back in 2018.

Fickell has to be one of the best recruiters in college football. In a non p5 situation, he gets very strong hs kids, but he's got a bama rb and now a nd wr with 2 seasons left. Guy's good:

I was curious about Marvin Washington.
He said he was recently offered by Eastern Kentucky via social media.

I am not sure I agree. One presumes a kid enters the portal because he feels the school is not all in on him. There is no other way to explore whether u might be a better fit elsewhere. Last, this isn’t a prison sentence - why is it so bad that a kid says, I want to play, I don’t see a path here or I think I'd be happier elsewhere and want to explore options?

Schollys need not be renewed by the school. This is a 1-way street. At no other point in their careers will they be told they must stay for 4-5 years regardless of whether the job works out, the boss they joined to work with moves on, etc.

when we level the playing field for players and coaches, I’ll feel different.
