talk? Just let Dabo, Saban, and a couple other big name coaches come out with what these top tier Portal players are asking for.
"We inquired about Player X attending Clemson, and were told that his starting price was $2 Million dollars."
"We inquired about Player Y attending Alabama, and were told that the starting price was $5 Million dollars."
One of two things would then happen. Either the fanbases of schools would shut up about getting players off the Portal, or they would realize that they, the fanbases, are going to have to pony up SERIOUS money, THEMSELVES, if they want their schools to actually be able to get some of these top Portal players.
I am a mature, successful man and I would have trouble turning down a million dollars. It is hard to imagine 18 year old kids (who may be having a much harder economic time of things) turning such money down - even though it might be in their best interest in the long run.
