Breer is saying there will be a lot of kids playing for 3 or 4 different schools and end up with no degrees. They get one "free" transfer where they don't have to sit out a year. After that, if they went to a third school they would need to sit out a year. By then they wouldn't have enough eligibility to sit another year and go to a fourth school. And I doubt many guys want to sit out a year anyway if they went to a third school. A one time "free" transfer really doesn't seem like much of an issue.
Breer is wrong about this.
Listening to anyone from a blue blood that over recruits is going to be biased to the old ways of college football.
This is no different than the NBA/NFL. These kids are essentially free agents yearly and Coaches are running kids off to the portal to open up spots.
It works both ways. Schollies and NIL aren't all auto-renewing.
Coaches shouldn't be stuck with a kid who doesn't want to work hard and buy in and kids shouldn't be stuck with a coach who has no desire to develop or play them but instead sees them as practice fodder.
Kids should also not be stuck when a Coach leaves.
But education-wise the easiest way to transfer is use the 1-time nod. After that easiest way is grad transfer. That makes you immediately eligible at any place who offers some grad program you want so essentially anywhere they want you.
Because of this more kids than ever are taking summer courses and graduating in 3 years. The portal is improving grad rates not hurting it.
This new system should create about 30-50 viable schools. A number that represents every section of the country and makes for elite development of those kids but also entertainment.
A number consistent with how much legit D1 talent is out there.
College football fans are weird anti-progress people so often and it is just goofy.
Most of the schools we love don't get the titles they have without JUCO or transfers.
This is just an opp for those kids who got bumped down a slot to also move on somewhere else rather than redshirt and then cover kicks for 4 years.
And it makes this off-season far more interesting for fans with all the movement.
