    Incoming DB transfer:



    Josh Newton is a 6'0, 188-lb DB from Louisiana-Monroe who has played boundary CB in his three seasons for the Warhawks. He has started 24 consecutive games for ULM, and last year totalled 48 tackles, 2 INTs and 8 PBUs. He'll have two years of eligibility remaining.

    Newton was originally a 2-star WR recruit coming out of Ouachita HS in Monroe, LA. Jimmy Young was also a 2-star recruit coming out of that same high school.

    For once "Fox news" is at least interesting!

    I wonder how the transfer portal is ultimately going to affect pro leagues. I'm just looking at some of these young players in the pros (notably Kyler Murray and Bakefield) who used transfers in college to up their profile and are now having difficulty adjusting to a world where they aren't in complete control and the people that run things don't give two squats about holding their hands and stroking egos.
    Will the portal make already big ego entitled players that think they should get what they want when they want it create even more players that are going to be completely unprepared for the status change they will face going? This just seems like it's further cementing a mindset that if you don't like a situation for whatever reason you can just move. That doesn't fly in the pros.
    Anybody think pro teams might start factoring in "how many times did this guy transfer" into the equation when looking at drafting?

    Inbound transfer:



    Florida State running back Corey Wren announced today that he'll be transferring to TCU after two injury-riddled seasons in Tallahassee. Originally from New Orleans, Wren was heavily recruited by the Frogs during the 2020 cycle as a three-star prospect. In addition to RB, we may also see him at WR or returning kicks & punts.

    Schools should pay the athletes, and there should probably be set pay scales. But God forbid universities do anything remotely ethical. Talk about a hive of hypocrites.

    Yeah, the system was unfair to players. But rather than actually do the hard work to actually come up with a fair system that still maintained at least a semblance of the amateur college experience, they just went, eh, whatever, and now it's a system where some people get paid insane money, others don't really benefit, and loyal fans get left in the cold because of the lack of any sort of institutional pride and brotherhood.
    But this is the world we live in... don't do the hard work of creating something of quality but rather just put some bs out there that changes the landscape and consequences get pushed to some unfortunate later people to deal with.
    Reminds me of the Affordable Care Act. And the general attitude toward climate change... and COVID... and the wealth gap... student loans... etc.

    I'm actually dealing with a similar situation in the library world and it's really making me angry.
