    Free agency if it wasn't already.

    I agree with the rule from a principle standpoint, but some lower level teams are going to get plucked big time.

    Even the grad transfer market has changed in recently years. You have so many kids that enroll early into college now a days they’re graduating academically within three years while they still have two years of athletic eligibility left.

    The pandemic has even added a temporary wrinkle with the eligibility clock freezing. You had fifth year guys this year given a sixth year of eligibility for next year.

    It’s been rough for the middle & bottom of college athletics these days. But in terms of the ultimate goal in college football this has been a sport where even at the top the gap between Alabama & Clemson has been noticeable to the next tiers in the last decade.

    —————

    Locally a school like Temple that’s done a good job of developing up lower ranked recruits into NFL prospects have seen some of their grad transfers picked off by P5 schools recently. It could get worse for a school like that.

    Seems like he had lingering health issues from a serious car accident in 2010 on top of drug & alcohol problems.

    Dan Mullen's weirdness definitely cost him the best TE on the transfer market, a mere 30 days after putting a TE in the top five of the draft... @FLYguy3911.

    I'd bet any amount of money that they offered it to Johnny Dawkins first, and for whatever reason Dawkins turned them down. Johnny Dawkins was the man before most people even knew that there were men.

    There's a wild story with a VT freshman being arrested for murder. Seems there is a dude who catfishes young men and victimizes them and he finally did it to someone able to easily beat him to death.

    It's a situation where the more you dig in the worse the "victim" looks. People have recognized him as a regular at some bars, and those bars have had issues with men getting roofied drinks. Interesting correlation there.

    I think 8 teams is best with the 5 conference champions and 3 at large. Twelve teams sets up all kind of controversy over the 4 teams who get a bye.

    They need to go to 16 - the more, the merrier. It will be great to watch.

    There’s a noticeable gap after Alabama & Clemson let alone that next wave of teams that have made the playoffs recently in like Ohio State, Oklahoma, Georgia, & Notre Dame. Then that next tier. Even LSU was essentially a one year crasher to this point.

    Am sure am serious, Hollywood. Better to sacrifice a couple of regular-season games for playoff games.
