Lol, you are extrapolating a whole bunch of your own thoughts into my very basic observation.

It's a simple fact that some kids will leave their current school thinking they're going to improve their lot, and actually end up worse off. Not my life, don't care if they try, but that's what will happen in some cases.
I don't get why this is even a debate. Your comment is not controversial in the slightest

What about the backup big from Iowa last year? (sorry, cant remember his name) Not getting involved in this mistake argument, but rather curiousity makes me wonder why he entered the portal and then left the portal fairly quickly to come back to Iowa anyway.

He made a visit to Temple but wasn't a take anywhere. His options were JuCo or come back to Iowa. Iowa will take him because Fran is desperate to fill his final roster spots and doesn't know how to work the portal. They are going to end up giving a scholarship to at least one walk-on.

I picture Fran pulling a folding chair up to a mid-90s desktop computer trying to dial up while screaming at his secretary to help him 'get into the portal thing'.

Oh, okay. Some on here have said there are several players that will exit the draft yet. And if other schools have already got their guys, I suppose Fran could still pull a good one out of his hat?? He's fortunate that Kris Murray declined the invite. Cuz I think he would have got drafted second round. But just my worthless, non-analytical opinion. lol

Doesn't sound like a done deal on Kris Murray returning but it seems very likely he does. Kenyon said it had something to do with the 5-on-5 portion of the combine favoring guards as to why Kris declined the combine invite.

They seem to be targeting Keion Brooks as their backup plan but he will have far better options than Iowa if he does return.

I’d bet Yesefu would like a do-over. Maybe not so much on entering the portal but at least on where he went.

Lol. Says the guy with a contention entirely based on knowing what a player is thinking, what is best for them, and what they deem as worse off, based on his own thoughts! Exactly why you’re stance is poor.


Just to be clear, you are asserting that sure success of achieving the goal is needed to pursue the goal, other wise it is a “mistake”?

Didn’t Brooks announce he’s not returning to college?

He’s an example of why you SHOULD go to portal Imo. It’s unlikely you’ll lack options.

Playing time risk in those option isn’t portal/transfer specific. Plenty of high school guys would like do-overs because they were able to land a scholarship at a place they weren’t good fits for in terms of PT.

Yes, you are right. Every single player of the thousands that have entered the portal have improved their lot. You win.

Lol, so you see your hypocrisy. Good. Someone adjudicating players making “mistakes” in transferring is placing their thoughts onto others.

Is “improving one’s lot”, needed for it to not be a mistake in entering the portal? Nope. That’s the contention.

You implied there were a material amount of “mistakes” being made, and followed that up with it being based on whether goal being achieved. Seems like taking exceptions and blowing it out of proportion, while also passing your thoughts as to what is a mistake

Stop the mistake or no mistake debate. Nobody is going to 'win', and it is annoying to the rest of us.

No, I see that you are into arguing, no matter how dumb the semantics

This doesn’t make any sense re my post you quoted.

Could be. Could also be that some team really liked him during a tryout and promised to draft him in the late 1st or 2nd round. Told him to shut things down so other teams couldn't evaluate.

Strange logic, but maybe the situation is good or guarantee of 2 way deal or team is targeting Keegan in top 7.

That would be a really stupid thing to do.
