Employers pay us for what we can do. That always comes down to a talent, whether physical or mental. The high IQ will serve you for your entire life and has broad market application. The physical talents may not, and have only limited market application, although the ceiling is crazy high. If I have the choice, I take the brain.
Grit matters too. I forget who, but some TED superstar woman wrote a book about grit being the most defining aspect of successful people - the ability to not quit on a problem or situation and preservering. I agree intelligence is a huge factor (much more than experience, despite current HR practices), but if you can mesh it with "grit"...that's a deadly combo. And either one separately can be pretty dang strong too.

Siap, but last time I saw the bylaws - if a player enters the portal any time after classes have begun, then his scholarship for that 1 semester is still guaranteed. But nothing further.

If a player enters before the semester begins, then the school has no obligation, but I'm sure schools are strategic depending on the player/situation.
I’d love to see that bylaw. I don’t believe it exist. I am almost certain once a player enters the portal their $ can be removed. Thus why there was a report that Morris was taken off money


Edit: I am an illiterate dumb ass I guess

I believe that merit/effort/grit is a micro effect and talent is macro. Effort will allow you to be the best version of yourself, but make no mistake, the guy with no marketable skills and a great work ethic, has a much lower ceiling than a lazy genius or artist or athlete with exceptional talents. Digging ditches can only be worth so much.

This site says end of semester unless the athlete enters the portal before classes begin: "Also for Division I athletes, remember that once you tell your school you want to be entered in the Transfer Portal, they have the right to cancel your scholarship at the end of the semester or quarter, even if you were planning to finish out the current school year. If you are at a Division I program that hasn’t started classes yet for this year (mostly west coast universities), telling them now that you want to be entered in the Transfer Portal before classes begin could mean that you won’t have your scholarship for this upcoming semester or quarter. "

yea that makes sense

No way a kid could go thru spring practice and enter the portal in the summer and the school have to keep them on scholarship during the season. No idea where @Devo182 got that

Self-employed/contractors/independent agents (you insurance peeps) - possibly big changes coming to PPP loans (in a good way) as soon as tomorrow. Just a heads up for any such folks. And if you haven't gotten your free monies yet...5 weeks left. Fully forgivable loan (just call it a grant)...don't miss out VN homies.

I agree, to an extent. I believe the merit/effort/grit has to be there before the lazy genius or exceptional talent, or else the genius or those talents are never realized.

Devo, doesn’t this round have a requirement that your income was down at least 25%? I haven’t looked at the exact terms recently but saw that as a stipulation when this second round was first discussed.
