College Free Agency On The Horizon

Recommended Posts

Transfer activity appears to be growing at a faster rate.

Too many top recruits consolidating to too few colleges, causing expected logjam in competition for starting positions.

Georgia, Alabama and Clemson are hoarding 5 star talent at a rate never seen before.  It's inevitable that these kids, who see college as a training camp for the pros, will transfer when the playing time window closes.

How does this get fixed?  

Personally would like to see the 5 star talent more spread out, making more programs better and a challenge to the top tier schools.

The game will suffer long term if the same 2 or 3 schools are the only ones with a legit shot at a national title.  Clemson-Alabama viewer ratings were a disaster this year, as was the decision to play the game in Santa Clara.

Add to it that both teams had a lot of young talent on the field, pretty guaranteeing their spots in the game next year, and maybe even beyond. If I remember right, years ago, the NCAA changed the number of scholarships that could be offered. The impact was more noticeable in basketball as it spread the top talent across more programs. But even in basketball, we are seeing the same few teams at the top again. Part of me says things like what we have seen exposed at Louisville are the norm, and that some schools have the cash for the top talent that lures them there, but that programs that have not been caught are just smarter than the people at Louisville are.

Maybe the kids will finally get the message.  I think of Indiana guys like Tommy Stevens,, Gunnar Kiel,  Hunter Johnson and Brandon Peters.  

 

All could have had productive multi season college careers had they gotten better advice from coaches, parents, gurus, insiders, etc.

If you can play, you can play, you do not have to go to OSU/MICHIGAN/USC/TEXAS/BAMA/CLEMSON/FSU/FLORIDA to get drafted.
