The portal thing to me is,

a lot of trouble and does not serve the purpose intended IMO. I say dump it.

The portal is there and probably isn’t going away but it was set up for grad transfers and has changed to allow a full blown transfer option for all! If they are going to have this portal let them all play immediately and stop the waiver junk that seems to get approved for blue bloods and disapproved for most of the others! A AD at a school where a player is transferring from should not have input about the waiver being approved or disapproved! At some point make it about the players!

SMU disagrees.

The portal is not going away. Might be adjusted, but not going away.
