Since the staff mentioned earlier there are some changes coming in terms of the transfer portal I thought it might be nice to compile any transfer movement into one post.

I’ll attempt to continue to update this post throughout the offseason. If you notice any I’m missing post in here and I’ll update this post to include them.

So I work with one of the players' dad. He told me that Swann and Taylor are both transferring as well. Anyone seen anything on that?

A couple of weeks ago, I posted a concern that the way this staff is handling QBs, they may lose all three.

The way the schedule looks next year ,the o-line can’t protect and the staff can’t figure the position out I’d be getting out of dodge too.

Nothing good comes from losing and with Texas, Oklahoma entering the SEC next year, it feels like there is a lot of this to come. Vandy can become a semi-pro league to feed other semi-pro teams when they get exposure in hopes they become NFL players. It kind of feels like Vandy is a gudgeon in the ocean right now in a conference with sharks and whales.
