Deion Sanders’ use of Colorado’s transfer portal is “troubling,” according to an SEC commissioner.

After the Buffaloes’ dominant season-opening victory over TCU, which featured a number of new players on the roster, SEC commissioner Greg Sankey commented on the beginning of Deion Sanders’ tenure with Colorado.

As a result of Sanders’ use of the transfer portal, Colorado will begin the season with 86 new players, Rich Eisen asked Sankey what he thought about this.

The commissioner commented, “The headline can be a little troubling as we’re talking about providing more certainty and security for student-athletes.
“Deion has explained a lot, in my opinion.
What people think about that is probably a topic for a different discussion on another day.

The fact that the SEC commissioner, of all people, found the use of the transfer portal “troubling,” is ironic, of course.

Even though the roster adjustments aren’t quite as radical as what Colorado made this offseason, the top programs in his conference are undoubtedly using the portal.
While Stetson Bennett switched between Georgia and another school during his collegiate career, LSU won the championship in 2019 with transfer quarterback Joe Burrow at the controls.

Bennett’s sole accomplishment was to guide the Bulldogs to consecutive national championships.

The use of the transfer portals by LSU and Georgia prior to their national championships was probably a good decision.

Given Colorado’s recent roster turnover, Sanders is currently a divisive figure, but it is difficult to contest the initial outcomes. The Buffaloes only managed one victory all of last season, but they are off to a perfect start and will be ranked in 2023.

Sankey may find how they got there “troubling,” but Colorado’s future remains as promising as it has in the past.
