Coaches have to feel screwed

NIL + Portal = Instability.

The first year I coached HS football here in Utah, our rival school tried to recruit our star offensive player. Their HC got caught and paid a penalty for it. Our coaching staff was furious because this school was already light years better than us. They didn't need him and he was, by far, our best player. I can't imagine how helpless college coaches are feeling now with NIL and the portal. The star player you spent years recruiting and planned on starting for years to come could disappear in a heartbeat because some rich asshole at another school lures him away. All totally legal. No penalties. No probation. No death penalty.
