bona now has whole roster gone, look at verbal commits and see how low to mid are losing stars eg. hammond, you can rationalize it any way you want,look at st petes,robert morris a few years ago lost there best player 3 years in a row, st petes has so humiliated the megas that it would not surprise me to eventually see the bigs force div 1 a for the low to mids just like in football, of course the supreme court recently destroyed sports with the nil, if you saw the story in the buff news yesterday about the sums of money being paid to recruit athletes, some lineman in football making 300k, , there are horror stories about the amount of money being thrown at athletes in bball and fball, schools like nu cc spu can not possibly find rich alum to pay off players, also what good does it to recruit sleepers and freshman if they have breakout years and all of sudden they are gone, either bought off or promised nba careers (waterman),you can now see low to mids going juco or portal, high school seniors are no longer a priority , even for the mages, duke lost 6 players to the draft and kentucky usually loses 4-5 as well as other bigs, definitly an education is not even considers for many of the top 100 in major college sports, if you do not believe me , how many seniors were drafted in the last 3 nba drafts? more foot ball seniors are drafted, but there are many lower class players drafted, how many seniors were drafted first round yesterday? again education is not a major consideration for the big time program recruits, i wonder what the actual graduation percentage is for the top 100 in fball and bball, probably a lot higher for fball

You sound just like me re: this matter. I can tell you that from what I have read, college head coaches are just beside themselves with the portal issue. It's a disservice to the kids, in general; they are NOT graduating; they are not experiencing the ups and downs of life-that is how to respond to adversity by not fighting for a starting position (just transfer instead of competing); some kids transfer 2,3 and 4 times losing credits each time they transfer.

Coaches are constantly recruiting to fill their rosters (EVEN THE BIG PROGRAMS).There is no continuity in the college game anymore, EVEN in the BIG programs.

IT IS A NIGHTMARE FOR THE KIDS, THE COACHES, AND THE FANS.

Absolutely correct. Bona is down to 7 players even with latest additions. NU has almost a new team. Is it worth even recruiting freshmen. If they succeed they transfer. If they don’t succeed, they still transfer. It really is making a joke of NCAA. Remember when Prochet, Scott, Robb came here as freshmen and graduated from the program? Those days are gone and with it goes fan enthusiasm. Does anyone really know what to expect from Purple Eagles next year?

"Remember when Prochet, Scott, Robb came here as freshmen..."

Greg Paulus looks to be a very good coach, but his recruiting still doesn't measure up to what Chris Casey did. GP has yet to bring in 3 freshmen the likes of Prochet, Scott, and Robb.

If you're a good, competitive basketball team and you lose your recruit the first time around, don't worry. You can just keep recruiting them after they've committed to another school. What a country!

Looks as if college sports is going to me more of a cesspool than it already is. https://www.cbssports.com/college-basketball/news/agent-for-miamis-isaiah-wong-wants-better-nil-deal-threatens-hurricanes-star-will-transfer-per-report/ Wait till a player decides to hold out for more money during the season. Really not opposed to the portal. If coaches can leave, why not players? The NIL is turning into a giant s**tshow.

Looks like most of us agree the Portal is just a nightmare for college basketball, more so for low mid-majors like Niagara who will get stripped of any talented young star they happen to land, without much hope of getting anything in return...how long do you think big 7-foot Harlan Obioha is going to stay at NU if he happens to be a major force in the MAAC?

I've been watching mid-major college hoops since I was 8, and this might kill my fandom. College hoops is being ruined.

Isn’t it amazing that everyone of us agrees that college basketball is in trouble. It would probably be hard to find another subject all of us would agree on so easily.

What is amazing is that the NCAA still allows this to go on.
