    Are we even going to talk about the fact ND is paying probably $2.0 millionish for a “athlete” qb who is a “gamer” and a better runner than thrower?

    Man I honestly hate this Leonard move, in Parker I trust?

    I mean Pratt is going pro by all accounts and ward is a spread/go rpo qb.

    I dunno if Riley is going to be all that big of an upgrade over someone like book but he’s way better than what they have (at least in the opinion of the coaches)

    Leonard is a better thrower of the football than runner and one of the best throwers of the football in college football. Now If you were to say passer I'd agree. Incredible arm, not sure how accurate or how he processes.

    I’ll hope for the best

    Man Duke is going to get fucked up in the portal reading their board. Wonder how long it takes before schools of their type just say fuck it it isn’t worth it - the best outcome is a good coach for 2-3 years.

    Losing Staes sucks but might make sense is another program that doesn't have 4 other guys as good as him goes in hard saying come here and be The guy with a nice bag to go along with it. Or Georgia says hey come play for us.

    It is probably the least concerning of any transfer could be that at the same time still sucks.

    It's going to get to the point where recruiting doesn't end until eligibility is out. Signing Day is just one of many holding periods.

    All I can say is that this is the new reality of NIL and the portal. There's going to be a lot more roster turnover, with a lot more guys choosing to explore their options way before any of us would prefer. This will be especially true of ND guys, who with their high profiles and strong academic pedigree, will have a litany of offers to choose from in any given cycle. For better or for worse, college football has become even more transactional in nature. We need to adjust our mindset and expectations accordingly.

    Won’t this year actually be the craziest cycle in terms of sheer numbers simply due to some guys still have Covid year availability?

    If ND takes 25 recruits every cycle plus the 5-7 PWO's of which time is showing 1 or 2 of those PWO's hit and become scholarship players then you pretty much are having 10 transfers out every year (5th years are always going to be a thing as well). Then you've got 5-10 portal adds which changes the math even more.

    In another words do not fall in love with the roster, the roster will always be changing by 33-35 players every Winter from here out. Guys are going to transfer out that are unexpected, trust the staff this is new for us

    Hell, at this scope, it's new for every team. I guarantee that Georgia loses double digit guys that were 4&5 stars that fans were in love with, but who are lured away for NIL or more playing time.

    So far we've lost a few talented starter-ish guys, but every one of those was either in some sort of watered down rotation, had already been passed by somebody younger, or was in real danger of being passed and may get a guarantee elsewhere.

    Losing experienced depth sucks, but every team is going to lose those. And it's becoming less and less realistic to keep experienced vets who see the writing on the wall that there may be more opportunity to play elsewhere. And of course, there's always the fresh start angle.

    So far the one I dislike losing the most is Tyree because he made some big explosive plays this year, and was selfless and showed leadership in his approach to the position change. But he's in the one crowded and promising WR group at slot, and while he made the biggest plays, he was probably not developed or reliable enough in other aspects to hog the snaps.

    Plus, I'm not 100% sure they don't include slot in the portal targets.
