It's been a busy — and not so busy — week in Kansas athletics, with several key Kansas basketball players weighing their future plans and a handful of KU football players entering the transfer portal.

Included in this episode:

• Christian Braun and Jalen Wilson seem to have the biggest decisions to make among the current Jayhawks with immediate NBA aspirations.

• Could the departures of 11 KU football players actually be a good sign?

I really feel like the widening and facilitation of the transfer portal along with NIL is going to continue to concentrate more power in the hands of fewer schools. NIL if it's going to be a success needs to be on par at EVERY Div I school. I'm not a socialist, but college hoops needs competition among many to be successful. It's not the free market for a reason.

Thinking about the portal from the coaches' side, it's like a giant Sears catalog. Need a Wide Receiver? Turn to the section on wide receivers, scroll through and identify those who might fit your needs, who you want to take a closer look at. Seems like this would make identifying potential candidates to fill your team much simpler, at least the part to identify those to look at more closely.
