I hope you’re right, but, it’s a risky game! They’ve given up a $100,000+ a year scholarship with no guarantees they will get it back!

That's not exactly a step up.

I'd agree with that.

"pursuing my dreams" (playing bb professionally) obviously trumps a vanderbilt education for the great majority of today's men's hoopsters.

How much does it pay to play for the Egoli Magic, the South African "pro" basketball club based in Johannesburg?

He was in the portal several weeks back.
I suppose the only saving grace is that the portal is full of players and VU is far from alone in what has indeed become a nonsensical mess.

Bump. Updated with Edwards.

I was a bit worried with all the departures. However, so far Byington has hit the portal hard. I wouldn’t be opposed to seeing some of the guys who left return, but regardless, CMB and staff are clearly putting in work. And it sure makes one wonder about how much NIL support has increased.
(Side note: I would’ve been curious what Stack could’ve done with the added NIL support, but that ship has sailed.)
