    Default More Transfer Portal fun.....

    Looks like UF is losing a 2019 recruit to transfer before the season even starts. Early enrollee QB Jones is in the portal according to SaturdayDownSouth. Enrolled early and played in spring game, but is now leaving.

    This is getting ridiculous. Entitled elite athletes that are afraid of competing and working harder if they don't immediately start.

    What we’re seeing is the system correcting itself. P5 coaches get the top talent by promising them the spotlight but then they end up with 2 or 3 players in the same position who were all promised the spotlight. These guys realize their situation and decide it’s better for their college career to go to a lower level P5 or G5 which is probably what they should have done in the first place. It ends up being better for the non-elites in the long run.

    Troy lost their starting QB Sawyer Smith to transfer. That makes that game easier. They have no lost multiple starters to transfer from 2018.

    Barker was a better QB, although Smith wasn't bad.

    They lost a corner as well, even if he wasn't a starter.

    We have yet to lose anyone that really hurts, although I wish Bush had stuck around to provide quality depth at DT. We haven't lost multiple starters either....and yes I'm thinking of Rogers and Bargnare. Even if they were starters every game they played in, we put a lot of other guys out there as well.

    We've also benefited from quality guys transferring in and may get another great pickup if Feaster comes here.

    Barker is coming off a major knee injury. And he’s a senior. Doubt he was taking back the job from the junior Barker.

    Sawyer only got the job because Barker got injured.

    Agreed. Barker was head and shoulders better and Sawyer knows this

    Correct. This is essentially a form of the trickle down theory that actually works. Ironically, it’s based on the greed of the organization and the selfishness of the players. Ultimately it will force down some of the players that P5 teams try to hoard which in turn will force out of FBS some players that 1) feel that they are better than their competition and/or 2) some of those who probably shouldn’t have been recruited as FBS players. This will happen at every level until you reach a point where you get to schools that have players that are there to get an education over caring about the possibility of riding the bench.

    that's no different than the last 50 years. The difference is kids not wanting to compete and wait their turn.
