No Team Loyalty
We fantasize that our favorite college players love the team and feel a strong attachment to it. The reality is that they came to the best program available. But when they stay for a couple of seasons and create memories it doesn’t matter. Unfortunately, many fans won’t experience this because of the new NIL program.
It’s having a serious impact on the transfer portal as college athletes switch schools like Leonardo DiCaprio changes girlfriends. We’ve seen college players spend six seasons with the same team but this may never happen again. Some schools may see the benefit of bringing in an older player to guide their younger stars (via TWSN).
