How frustrating will it be to get top recruits, simply to lose them to a higher bidder

If we can lose a starting QB to the transfer portal, and if teams can simply outbid each other to steal recruits, college football as we know it is over. The devise between the haves and the have nots will only get wider.
How can a coach at a lesser school compete, and how can any coach at any given time know what players he can expect back from year to year?
The transfer portal and NIL will destroy college sports unless some guidelines are placed.

Maybe we should play the same game.

Only 5-6 schools want the landscape of college football to continue like it is now. For the health of the sport nationally, they’re going to have to make changes or some type of regulations to keep some parity. If 98% of the schools know they have no shot in a bidding war, that’s not a model that can sustain long term.

I agree there need to be clear regulations but the best player in LSU football history came from the portal. Two portal guys have our hoops team number 1 in the RPI. And another portal guy could be a Golden Spikes winner here.

When you’re successful but forget who and what made you successful...we call this “Collis Temple-ing”

If your winning like I anticipate, the culture of the program will decrease the odds significantly

That’s the solution to save college football. If you buy the best players every year doesn’t it take away the fun?

So you outbid other teams to bring in a hotshot recruit, only to lose him the next year to a higher bidder.
Again, this isn’t a sustainable model

For the down voters, let me ask you a simple question.
Do you think players feel entitled now? How do you think they will act when they know they can leave at any time and go to higher bidder? Who do you think would be more motivated to practice hard, get better and put out, the player trying to get in the pros and get paid, or the guy who already has his bank account fat with NIL money?
What player is more apt to not talk back to the coach and be loyal to his school?

Y’all are overreacting creating situations that will rarely ever happen.

99% of all guys in the portal are either due to coaching change, lack of playing time, or going from a weak program to somewhere with a shot at winning. Nobody in the portal has bolted a good situation for cash.

The transfer portal is a cancer to CFB

Did he bolt a good situation? Coaches were gone, fanbase unhappy and new staff openly saying they would look for a portal QB

I honestly think that this NIL crap and transfer portal crap combined is the absolute ruination of College Football.

The more they tinker with CFB, the worse it becomes. I don’t know why though. If you like this garbage, just watch the NFL.

A school like A&M can become a problem. Wealthy oil boosters. You saw it this recruiting cycle

I don’t see how anyone could think differently.
There will never be any sense of stability or cohesion and players will be more motivated by what’s in their bank account and less about winning.

That’s exactly right. This is really bad news for the sport if for no other reason that it puts the power in the hands of a very select few and causes a real disinterest in those who can’t keep up or even participate. This is NOT good for CFB on a whole, no matter if LSU benefits or get’s it handed to them. It’s just not good for the sport.

It’s no coincidence they have the number one ranked recruiting class this year. Reports estimate they spent 30 million to get it.
