Bryan and John talk about men’s basketball’s 4 game slump, and then spend some time talking about the latest football news, transfer portal realities, and hard numbers.

So, we Talk Turkey over some realities in this one. The first Roundball Roundup segment is short and not so sweet. The NCAA is now out of reach, unless this team suddenly wins out and dominates each game for a shot at the bubble. Post season is looking like our best hope is the NIT and a solid run far into that tournament.

On the football side of things, the transition continues. The Transfer Portal and reactions by Fuente and the team are misunderstood by a media looking to create controversy. The coaching staff has a limit... 85... if a player hits the portal, their scholarship is surrendered for that period, and used to sign another player or retain someone who is not on schlarship. Fuente and staff have to take a business decsion. This year, especially, with so many players coming back to play in 2020.

Lots to cover, and there will be more as this new way of dealing with personnel hits college football.

Regular National Signing Day was quiet, a couple of solid gets is all we had scholarship offers to notch. The lockerroom door is closed for 2020. Time to go to school, condition, and get ready for Spring practice.
