The Notre Dame Fighting Irish have seen the transfer portal giveth and the transfer portal taketh — and that’s just the easiest way to look at something that has become a staple of college athletics moving forward.
Because of the nature of college football and the portal itself, the number of players who choose to transfer elsewhere for their remaining year or years has dramatically increased. This has made some CFB fans wonder “what’s wrong here?” as they see name after name go into the portal.
The thing is... there’s nothing really wrong at all at most places — it’s just a new way of doing business. Regardless of why I’m always curious about how former Notre Dame players do at their new homes.
It’s why this tweet is really, really interesting.
