    For a lot of kids you might as well just pencil in their eligibility at 3 years - college football is simply the minor leagues getting them ready for the NFL.

    Coaches and players both know it and understand it. Only thing keeping some players around is the transfer protocol which allows some players (Jalen Hurts a good example) to raise their draft stock by cherry picking a good opportunity with a team that will take them.

    And with Justin Fields case showing that you can transfer anywhere/anytime without sitting, free agency in NCAA football is wide open as an option these days.

    Agree with you here. The way the transfer landscape is today, isn't this advantage USC? If upperclassman see an open position and USC wants them, you'd think transfers would strongly consider it. Especially if terrible recruiting class continue under he who shalt be named, we might be able to salvage it with the portal pickups.

    Another player who had committed to Iowa. In this case he stole some Iowa merch on a recruiting trip and his offer was withdrawn.

    Interesting piece of information.

    ASU has become something of a "last chance saloon" for some kids with sketchy academics or off-the-field issues - Vontaze Burfict is perhaps the poster child for that type of player who ended up at ASU. CB Jack Jones was a kid who played for two years at USC and then ran into some off-the-field issues that led to his departure from the Trojans - now he is playing for ASU. On the flip side, there are a number of kids who have benefited greatly from the chance to raise up their academic skills and/or social issues - one was a DT from Corona Centennial (sorry - name escapes me) who became an academic all-american and was drafted by the NFL after he was admitted to ASU after not being able to qualify academically elsewhere in the Pac12.

    His offer wasn't withdrawn because he stole Iowa Merch.
    I think he had an Iowa hoodie on that some fans thought was stolen.
    Lol really, a hoodie?

    If his offer was pulled because he stole merch, tell my why two coaches were then let go because of this?
    Iowa totally screwed up the situation with Eno.

    He admitted he screwed up and went back to ask forgiveness.
