    This keeps up and the dreaded + Assessment of Former Posters tag is going to get added lmao

    Well it’s all but official now. Immediate eligibility for multi year transfers as long as they actually went to class and are eligible to pursue a degree at the next stop. NCAA seems to be using academic standing as the new “penalty” not that it sounds like much of a penalty. It was official in all but name, but the NCAA is making unlimited transfers without penalty policy. 2+ schools is going to start to be the norm I would guess until some financial rules are in place. It is one more official step towards college sports as we all knew it being dead. (Yes, I know they haven’t been challenging multi transfer guys really at all since the last court ruling).

    I wouldn’t say I am optimistic or pessimistic right now. Maybe just a little mistic

    I mean is it that much of a stretch though? 24/7 has them as the 13 and 17th best players available. 5 and 7 at the guard position. And they would be in the same backcourt.

    Preface with I prefer Conwell....buttttt Rice and Kanaan would probably be the best backcourt in the country, not just the B1G.

    Remember when spring was for baseball season and the spring game? Yea, me neither. Portal season is nothing if not entertaining.

    That stings being that he’s local, but I’d rather take a run at Conwell.
  9. He will fit right in here with that percentage lol

    Walsh following Ballo now on IG, if he was earlier I missed it.
  11. That is why I believe it is not sustainable. Eventually the money people are not going to keep pumping funds in and the current rate. That is just simple math, when that happens there will have to be a shift in where the money comes from and how it is distributed. IMO this will be some sort of profit share based on the TV contracts for football, and to a lesser extent, March Madness. Then again, maybe not, but I just do not see how the current large donation based system can sustain itself. I do not think the crowd sourced small donation model can support this going forward.

  12. At some point there are going to have to be other models of profit share and contracts. Exactly what you are saying is why I don't think the current model is sustainable. Unlimited transfers, no collective bargaining, not caps on spending, etc. It is a pro model without the constraints of contracts and salary caps. I am all for players getting paper, but sooner than later in my opinion there are going to have to be rule changes. Step one is universities stopping with the farce of the student athlete and just call them employees with the rights of employees.

    Money available aside, it would seem like there are plenty of minutes to be had in that situation. With Malik still playing out of position I would expect the foul issues to continue. Ballo was at 28 minutes a game. But I agree with you I do not think he is looking for backup money or role. Our track record with bigs has to be enticing though. If I could see any players taking less or a diminished role at IU it would be there, not at guard.

    Ballo, MR, MM, Carlyle, Rice with Gallo/Tucker/Hickman/Cupps and maybe Newton off the bench sure looks like a B1G title level roster. Still not a huge fan of the two big offense, but that would be a really really talented roster on paper.

    Gotta think we would be trying to get him to commit before leaving tomorrow? Based on the numbers involved seems like it would be crazy to have his NIL share pending/in limbo while he takes more visits. That is one piece of NIL that has always been perplexing. With seemingly finite-ish numbers to work with, having a guy slow walk a commitment would seem to hamper other recruitments in not knowing exactly how much cash on hand was left so to speak. ITH has UL, KSU, UNC, and Florida down as intended visits for Ballo.
