  3. If the ACC scraps divisions...

    I would be shocked if the 4 NC schools aren't the permanent 3 for each other and it does make alot of sense from a history standpoint. I'm all for scrapping the divisions. It'll basically be the top 2 teams playing in the Championship game (likely to be decided as the top 2 ACC teams in the CFP...
  4. Transfer Portal: Who's Coming and Going (2022 Roster)

    Solomon Byrd - the DE from Wyoming, I really hope we do not lose Joseph as someone above hinted at, he is one of the more proven productive players we have coming in.
  5. College Basketball NIL Discussion

    The US has never had and hopefully never will have an unfettered non-regulatory Capitalism. That is a recipe for disaster, just like unfettered Socialism or Communism would be. There have always been regulations and laws that serve as guardrails. At some times there are more guardrails and...
  6. Can we stay competitive in the NIL era?

    Unlike every other sport, college athletics is now basically running as a pure free-market system and that is a bad thing. Anybody with a basic understanding of economics understands you do not want an completely unfettered free-market - that tends to be bad for a society. That's why every...
  7. Finally, a non-profit GT collective: Introducing Jackets for ATLanthropy

    https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/ncaa-aims-to-crack-down-on-boosters-disguising-pay-for-play-as-name-image-and-likeness-payments/ We'll see if anything comes out of this.
  8. College Basketball NIL Discussion

    Swarbrick has been making a similar take for 4-5 yrs now, even before NIL and portal rules. His opinion is that there are some schools that want to have an academic student-athlete model and some that just want a semi-pro football model and that those 2 designs are not really compatible (though...
  9. ACC Discussion 2021-22

    Love announced he is returning as well so UNC returns every starter except Brady Manek. I expect they will likely be ACC pre-season favs next fall and I can easily see them being the pre-season #1 team.
  10. College Basketball NIL Discussion

    I think it will be a mix. The ability for some schools to offer large NIL packages will make them attractive to some of the top HS players and keep them from going to the G League or other places.
  11. College Basketball NIL Discussion

    I know it is easy to dump on the NCAA and they should have come out with stronger guidelines, but some schools didn't want them to and the NCAA is not going to try to enforce any of it because they are afraid they will get taken to court and lose. Basically the genie is out of the bottle and...
  12. College Basketball NIL Discussion

    Unlike some I never saw being in Atlanta as some huge advantage for NIL - to me that was always a mirage. It isn't companies providing most of this money. It is rich alum and fans. Large companies are not going to be big spenders in NIL because it does not make sense for them to. They usually...
  13. Can we stay competitive in the NIL era?

    This tweet is basketball specific, but it gives some idea of why I think there is a good chance Miami could rise to the top of the Coastal within 2-3 years. A much more competent coaching staff combined with nutty fans willing to spend alot of money provides alot of potential for growth. If...
  14. Transfer Portal: Who's Coming and Going (2022 Roster)

    Good article on how coaches are looking forward to May 1st as at least they have a good sense then of who is on the team for next season. https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/college-football-coaches-eager-to-catch-breath-as-transfer-portals-may-1-deadline-pauses-roster-churn/
  15. Transfer Portal: Who's Coming and Going (2022 Roster)

    As mentioned the importance of May 1st is it is simply the day where players have to enter the portal by to be able to play in the fall. So who you have on your roster on May 1st you know should be there. Players who are still in the portal can continue to be recruited by schools and pick...
  16. Transfer Portal: Who's Coming and Going (2022 Roster)

    I think the only thing you can say about him is that he is a young guy with some potential. Nothing more, nothing less. He did not play as a true freshmen (as most don't), and he didn't figure to see significant snaps this year at Kansas, which suggests he probably is unlikely to see significant...
  17. Transfer Portal: Who's Coming and Going (2022 Roster)

    This is my biggest concern going into the season. I'm not even convinced we have 5 legitimate ACC level starters, much less acceptable backups. If the OL isn't significantly better than last year's then it won't matter what talent we have at the QB, RB, WR, TE spots on offense. They won't have...
  18. Coaching Carousel 7 - When life gives you lemons, squirt someone in the eye

    I would expect the big time basketball factories - Duke, UNC, KY, L'ville, AZ as well as a handful of others that just have deep pockets due to football will likely have alumni spending alot of money while others get what they get. I get Tshiebwe's decision. He isn't listed as being on many...
  19. Transfer Portal: Who's Coming and Going (2022 Roster)

    If you want to understand where this is headed just look at college basketball as it has a few years head start in using the portal. On a yearly basis over 40% of all college basketball players portal. When you add in those that use up their eligibility and those that leave early for...
  20. Coaching Carousel 7 - When life gives you lemons, squirt someone in the eye

    In the next 5 to 10 years I think many coaches in college basketball will start to retire by the time they are 60. Most of them make enough money that they can afford to. There is alot of talk that it is just too much of a grind now with all the changes. It's a year round job with no real breaks...
