Terrible piece with no logic to it.

Clark enters the portal to no ones surprise. Good luck!

It starts with "Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results" and ends with "I have complete faith in coach Donahue to build a winning culture at Penn." By the author's own logic, he is insane.

In the author’s defense I can say from personal experience that it’s hard to write a good sports column when you’re a college student!

Clearly, the DP scribe has neither seen nor heard of the presumptive Ivy rookie of the year, Malik Mack.

He said “best pair.” There is only one of Mack!

Washington Post weighs in with an NIL article on Malik Mack. Strong case that he should just go to Georgetown if he wants academics and NIL money. Tyler Perkins mention along with Wolf and Lee as other young Ivy players that could get significant NIL money if they transferred.

I didn't really understand the concept of collectives until I read this article. After reading it, I honestly don't understand how the Ivies will survive at a D-I level.

They have plenty of money to do the same. I will never understand. Why wouldn’t a Wharton grad with influence and interest in sports put up an NIL pot? Anything to stop it?

Many here have said that at this level, it's all about winning. Well, winning won't happen in the future without alumni opening their checkbook. We will all need to stop whining and start giving. Who will step up and raise the Penn basketball NIL collective?

It’s not just Penn. It’s the whole league with more than its share of rich alums that won’t get on the collective train. Coincidence or collusion? DIII here we come.

If I were an Ivy president I'd do everything in my power to prevent alumni starting NIL collectives, up to and including jacking admissions standards WAY up. Collectives will cause the institutions lose too much control over their varsity programs, and that carries significant risk-- risks that really aren't worth taking for an Ivy as there's very little to be gained in return. Now, a president of a major conference university wouldn't care about this all that much, because those schools' varsity programs are already beyond their control, and they're also less concerned about the potential risks in light of the benefits.

And that's the unavoidable calculus-- Penn doesn't have enough to gain as an institution to justify pursuing major sport success, particularly in light of some recent embarrassments, especially with MBB. As a fan I desperately wish this weren't the case, but if I were Penn's president I would reluctantly decide to stick with the status quo. Steve Donahue has run a clean program and hasn't embarrassed the university, and, regrettably, that has to be good enough for the time being. Maybe when his contract is up the university will reconsider.

A contract that we STILL have no information about. They have made it very clear how they feel about this program and I guess us fans have to now do the same. What a shame.

Will you open your checkbook? You would get a voice if you do.

Earl, Henderson, and Martin, may be in the running for other coaching jobs. Donahue may move up the league tables.

By the way, the insinuation that we need to pony up even more money to have some fictional “say” is disgusting.

The Penn lacrosse “collective” (we actually bought tickets) was discussing this today. The consensus was that most of the mid majors that can’t or won’t buy top talent will end up in a new NCAA division much like 1AA or FCS in football. More palatable than DIII.

I don't know what you are disgusted by. That's the new world of athletics. The whole thing is disgusting. I know for a fact that Coach K is meeting with alumni and boosters about this stuff, even though he isn't even the Duke coach anymore. If you put in $10M, you don't get to run the program - but you better believe that you get to bend their ear.

If you think it is disgusting, then join me in not taking this stuff too seriously. It's fine by me if we fire Donahue. It's fine by me if we don't. I'm fine with Donahue starting Holland, and I'm fine that Laz got more time (especially since he was statistically superior). At this point, I only care about the program representing us with great student athletes.

You take it so not seriously that you invest time watching teenagers play a game (not well) and then post on message boards. You’re being aggressively weird.

Let people be mad. This is garbage. I’m just too apathetic to really call you out on your crud

I was a Penn fan even through the worst of teams. When I was an athlete, I played hoops a few times with some of the players. Penn wasn't very strong then. I was decent friends with an all-ivy player and also a benchwarmer who barely saw the court. They were both simply great guys. The benchwarmer worked his tail off in basketball and his schoolwork. He was a true student athlete. I'm still judgmental from my armchair, but I choose not to be a militant @sshole as an alumni with regards to people I don't even know, as long as the program seems to represent. On the other hand, a former player from the Miller years interviewed at my firm. He said it was dehumanizing playing with Miller. He was someone who had good playing time, so it wasn't a gripe about that. It isn't all about winning. It really isn't. The winning is nice and can be a great positive experience. If winning means so much to you, help the program by giving. That's the path in this new era. If your personal happiness depends so heavily on whether these young kids win or lose, then who is the weird one spewing crud?
