Dennis Dodd of CBS, has a good article about what the Mel Tucker to MSU hire tells us about college football. https://www.cbssports.com/college-football/news/fallout-from-mel-tuckers-move-extends-past-michigan-state-colorado-to-recruiting-the-pac-12-and-beyond/ He makes several good points, but the best in my opinion is about how there is so much gnashing of teeth when suggestions are made to allow college athletes more freedom to change schools or make money, because of the "imbalance" that it would supposedly create between teams, and how ludicrous that argument is considering the massive degree of imbalance that already exists. It seems like a no brainier to me, and yet so many will ignore/excuse that the imbalance exists while making their argument against the players. Tucker's own quote from the article, with it's blatant hypocrisy, is a perfect example of what I'm talking about. "There is no transfer portal in the real world" What? How do you figure? I would guess a majority of us on this board enjoy "unfettered free agency" in our careers. I could walk out of my job right now and go join another company. Some of us might have non-compete agreements, but to say that a transfer portal doesn't exist in the real world is ridiculous. It's called LinkedIn or Glassdoor or Indeed. It's either ignorant or deliberately false for him to say something like that, and becomes massively hypocritical given what has transpired. Can whatever imbalance people are afraid of happening really be all that different than what we have now?
