Bit of a surprise. Trevor Anderson, a walk on turned valuable scholarship guy is hitting the portal. Insiders say he’s headed to Wisconsin – Milwaukee.

I didn’t see that coming, but I get it. He was going to be an excellent insurance player for the badgers. But, if they wanted to go into next season with any experience in the back court, it was a somewhat decent chance he would get squeezed into a very small role. He helped the team win a conference title and was super valuable this year. Wish him nothing but good luck.

Worth noting Wisconsin-Milwaukee's coach's kid is a five star prospect who may go play for his dad

Also worth noting, getting a recruit to commit to you, just means you have to play him as a freshman, or you'll lose him. Almost better to be a transfer destination, then an original commitment at this point.  Because the powers that be would rather drive college sports into the ground, then pay athletes, or apparently allow them to get paid

I thought so too but apparently not:

That always seems like a stretch to me. He probably has the best pro potential of anyone in the Wisconsin senior class. He has been in college for five years, about to get married. He should get paid to play basketball somewhere for a good long while assuming health. I always thought his chances of coming back for your six for pretty low.

Shaka now headed to Marquette.  Meaning that there is a decent chance that Beard will trash the dreams of both Raiders and Hoosiers alike by jumping to Texas.

I'm good with that. 

The last thing I want to see is Chris Beard in Bloomington. He's actually good at his job, and we can't have that down there.

This transfer portal thing, particularly in men's hoops, is turning into quite the shit show.

Feels like AAU (scum) on steroids right now. 

This is likely the beginning of the end for developmental programs like Wisconsin.

Some interesting Shaka or Moser debate apparently within the Marquette Trustees/AD if my, pretty good sources, people are to be believed.

I don't 'like' this but it really is ruinous to the sport imo, from everyone else's perspective.  I recognize the argument for autonomy.

Yes.  I don't get some can't acknowledge something as being mostly good (although far from always) for players, but bad for everyone else.  Including the fans who fund the machine.
