Here is a quote from the Oakland coach.

"He's going to get offered so much money and I can't [match that]. We've got a 'Keep Trey Townsend Fund' going from our [NIL] collective, and we might be able to get $40-50,000 in there, but he's looking at $250-300,000 from what I'm being told. So, it's going to be hard for me to tell him to stay."

Gee, he is expecting to make more $$ than our coach.

Can’t really blame him. In a capitalistic society, he is free to make whatever $$ that people are willing to pay him. This is especially true for those who will never make it to nba. Make $$ now while you can.

Like most of the industrial companies, there are very little loyalty between employers and employees anymore since very few companies are offering pensions. The relationship are “at will” between them (employers can terminate employment at anytime for whatever reasons and employees can quit at anytime). People make decisions based on their personal benefits ( not company’s).The retirement $$ is now the 401k which employees can take with them when they leave.

If the mid major guy can expect to make this much, how much are the power 5 guys…..
Colleges may have to start looking at revenue sharing…..

Thanks,I'm a little slow today.    Townsend can for sure go up a level and help a so called power 5 conference program.  I would like to know  how much players are getting in the Horizon vs other conferences.  I would think the MAC would have deeper pockets than the Horizon but it could vary from school to school with football taking a lot of the collective money.

Yes. Two transfers IN for the women so far. Dacia Lewandowski from Akron and Faith Burch from Cleveland St.

Looking at the website, it is scary that we don’t have any assistant coaches listed on the team and we also lost half of the players via graduation.

Oakland and Horizon league player of the year Trey Townsend is in the portal.  I guess Oakland didn't have the funds to keep him.   Can we say any H-league player that is under recruited and then develops is more than likely a stepping stone ?

Interesting to note that Great Osobor of Utah State, who was the Mountain West player of the year, has entered the portal.

Transfer portal is all about money.   Simple as that.  Money. $$$
