    Hey Kevin is there someplace to understand this transfer portal. I tried to understand the NCAA site on it but it’s really still confusing. I know the athlete has to have eligibility left after that I get lost

    #155239

    Also Why do we play soccer in the MAC and not the Big12

    #155245

    The Big 12 does not sponsor men’s soccer. A list of the Big 12 sports:

    Baseball
    Men’s Basketball
    Women’s Basketball
    Cross Country
    Equestrian
    Football
    Golf
    Gymnastics
    Rowing
    Soccer
    Softball
    Swimming & Diving
    Tennis
    Track & Field
    Volleyball
    Wrestling

    That’s a very broad question on the portal. Basically, anyone in Division I can now transfer one time in their college career without having to sit out a year. All the player has to do is request that his or her name be entered into the portal. The school has two business days to do so. Players still have a five year window in which to complete four seasons of on-field competition.

    There are a couple of limits to transfers, most notably that in order to be eligible to play immediately the next season, the player must be in the portal by a deadline date. For fall\winter sports, that date is May 1. For spring sports, that is July 1. So, for example, if a football player playing this year for WVU decides he wants to transfer, he has to enter the portal before May 1, 2022, in order to be eligible to play in 2022 at another school. A baseball player (Spring sport) has until July 1, 2022.

    This covers any player who has not transferred during their career. If a player has transferred once, he/she can do so again, but would have to sit out a year as was the rule previously. However, they can apply for a waiver to avoid that, and that gets decided on a case by case basis.

    Any specific questions, please reply.

    Does the NCAA have any type rule or other means to prevent “poaching” by schools? It almost seems conceivable that a school, as part of their recruiting strategy, and aware of future needs, might have a built in function to monitor the
    portal, identify possible targets, and…….then what? Could be done both above board and/or otherwise!
    Not sure how the NCAA would control this in a manageable manner?

    #155267

    Don’t know how you can monitor the “poaching”.   Kids will always be looking for more play time of a better program.  The can reach out themselves, have parents and friends reach out and especially have their old coaches reach out.  In BB we know that old AAU coaches have already put a bug in players ear and set things in motion before their names hit the portal.

    Oscar to Coach Cal.

    Miller and Smith to SEC teams.

    It has already happened to some of our best players.  so, how do you stop it?

    #155280

    Cancel the portal!

    Cancel the 4 game redshirt rule!

    Drop scholarships to 65!

    Why does a team need 85 players?

    Spread the talent once!

    #155297

    ESPiN and all of the shoe companies would not like that.

    Thanks Kevin

    Yes, there are rules against poaching. However, before we go any further, monitoring the portal is NOT poaching. Once a player is in the portal, he/she is fair game to be contacted/recruited by any other school.

    Poaching would be contacting/recruiting a player before they are in the portal. There is no way for this to be controlled up front, any more than any other crime can consistently be controlled up front.

    Neal Brown all but came out and accused specific programs about poaching after losing certain player(s).

    Huggs just bit his lip.

    #155381

    Am I looking at this right?
    On the current roster page
    6 seniors. 73 freshmen

    #155385

    Scholarship count tab shows 7 SR’s .. 45 FR

    I’ve tracked WO’s and my unofficial count totals 85 FR counting all schollie and WO’s.

    What page are you looking at? The 2021 roster or the Scholarship count?

    The scholarship count page shows 75 total on scholarship, including 7 seniors.  Please clip the link to the page where you see 73 freshmen.

    #155415

    Just did a search using”FR” on the 2021 roster under Football.

    Probably not up on all the nuances available on here.
    Where are the pages?
    Are there more than one rosters on here?
    Scholarship and Walkons?

    #155418

    What really got me on this were the number of seniors on this team. seemed low compared to the usual. That too was a search using”SR” on the 2021 roster.

    #155419

    Tony, are you looking at the tabs on BGN?  or some other site where you show 73 FR?

    #155420

    And yes ……  Only 7 SR’s on the squad.  THAT is what Dana left us with.  BTW, I WAS a Dana fan until his last year.  Recruiting classes before he left turned me off completely.

    Because of that, we will take a few more years to get the program turned around.  I’m sure Gee and Lyons see that and will give Neal time to turn this around.  Can’t be done in just a couple years.  Not the way Holgs left us.
