Towson from the CAA, another one bid league.  I know he did not have the resume of Cremo or Nichols to get a bench role on a Power 5 team, but Towson was 4 and 14 this season, 2nd to last in CAA.  He will not sniff a tourney bid next season that's for sure.  Odd choice or maybe the only one?

It’s typically hard to find a a degree worse than Albany, but he found one in Towson lol. Hopefully he was able to finish his undergrad in three years there.

Well over 25% of all college basketball players are now in the transfer portal. I wonder if the NCAA should just starting assuming everyone is transferring and create a "staying portal for those guys

In 2020 - 4 kids transferred out in 2019 - 2 kids transferred out in 2018 - 4 kids left, granted 2 were grad transfers in 2017 - 4 kids transferred out   on and on and on, ros

Why? No one seemed to care when Albany lost a quarter of the roster every single year. So now we're worried? I've been beating the lack of recruiting, lack of development and excessive transfers out o

Very odd. Expected him to go A-10 or top CAA.  But so many kids in portal, take what you get and run. Kids will be left out. That said, the CAA is barely a shell of itself   That in mind, the league is Charleston’s for a long time...with Elon a sleeper   The rest will be Delaware, JmU (new arena alone will make them better), Drexel and NU

It sounds like a lot of Mid-Major schools will experience the transfer portal as a way to move up the ladder. It would be a shame if kids start using schools like Albany as a Juco year.

I think this might boomerang in some cases. Most mid majors are looking for the diamond in the rough kind of player that attracted little higher level interest. They land them, develop them and they blossom. You wind up with players like Lamb, Coppenrath, Warney, etc. Are recruiters going to still take these kids, when the expectation is that they’ll bolt after one or two years? I can see it from both sides. Why should a player be stuck and lose eligibility to be able to transfer vs why should a school give a scholarship to a player without expectations of some loyalty and appreciation in return?

The extra year of eligibility just doesn’t make sense to me. I’m all for student athletes being allowed to freely transfer without restrictions, but the extra year, no.

I may be completely wrong but I this 1000+ players in the portal is great news for us . 

Killings is suppose to be a recruiter. That's suppose to be his strength.  As a new head coach he will make some in game mistakes and things like that but he should know how to recruit.  

I truly expect to bring in "better recruited " players then Brown did . Brown has zero pull and needed to develope that as is went along.  Killings should be light years ahead of him. 

Again maybe I'm wrong but if this guy can't recruit significant better then Brown (his speciality) then I think we will be in trouble .
