NCAA getting hammered after reportedly tracking down coaches that have provided access to transfer portal
The NCAA always seems to make itself an easy target.
That continues to be the case this week as the organization is reportedly focusing its efforts on tracking down coaches that have given away access to the NCAA transfer portal.
Apparently, the NCAA is tired of the same handful of reporters sharing who has just entered the transfer portal. Of course, reporting on the names in the portal isn’t going to stop players from entering it.
According to Jeff Goodman of Stadium, that hasn’t stopped the NCAA from trying to halt access to the portal:
Been told the NCAA is gonna track IP addresses for those in the transfer portal and come down hard on the coaches who have given their passwords to non-coaches.

oh hey there it is: NCAA always focused on the critical stuff — like eradicating transparency whenever possible. https://t.co/EMrD3Ch4ZT

the NCAA cares more about the integrity of the portal than the integrity of some of its coaches… https://t.co/ous46rQtWu

The NCAA is acting like Netflix when they find out you shared your password with your friends and family. https://t.co/b75UgHIjFI
