    The no sit transfer is turning college sports into a chaotic farce. I hope the SEC takes note and maintains their policy to sit out 1 competitive season before regaining eligibility. Won't solve the problem but will keep the SEC teams from poaching within their conference from each other.

    You aren't alone, was never a huge basketball fan to begin with. This latest move by the NCAA has pushed basketball completely out of the picture for me now.

    I personally don’t understand the anger over the new transfer rule. If a player doesn’t want to be in your program you should want him gone. In my opinion effort and intensity was a huge problem for UGA basketball last season. Hopefully these new guys play like they want to win!

    I have a solution for the transfer mess. You can transfer as many times as you want. And play the year you transfer. But for every transfer, you lose a year of eligibility.

    For all 9 that have left, I do hope the door hits them when they leave. Maybe all this transfer mess will settle down after one year when those that transferred this year tells all of next year’s players that the grass isn’t always greener on the other side.

    Anyone know how to play taps? College basketball is moribund! Ridiculous. NCAA has ruined it. What are they thinking. I like the comment "Crean enters the portal in 2021." Dick Vitale is the only one I have heard taking the NCAA to task over this.

    It's not the rule that I have a problem with, although it obviously needs amending. The issue for me is a lack of roster continuity from year to year.

    In the current format, we have a better chance watching pros under contract than a uni team with underclassmen staying with their current team for more than one year.

    College Sports is the one place where we can cheer for a player & University as they grow together. There will be so few Freshman that stay at their beginning school that I'm confident in its current format college basketball will fail.

    Anyway, go dawgs!
