  • When my daughter was making her Division 1 visits to schools, one coached asked her if a 50% scholarship and some academic aid was enough to get her to come to that school. My daughter replied, why would I accept 50% when other schools have offered 100% full rides? The coach upped the offer to 100% a week later and my daughter played four years at that school and it set her up for life with all they had to offer her, both as an athlete and as a student.

    • Unfortunately you pay for the first two years and then if it goes well, they pay for the last two. Again It's what I've heard, it may not be every case and there may be exceptions and maybe OSU has changed things with the big two, but it used to be that way.

        When my daughter was a D1 athlete 10 years ago the NCAA did not allowed full scholarship to cover an entire roster (for whatever reason) so coaches would typically give full rides to the stars of the team and break the remaining scholarships up and distribute the money in various amounts to the rest of the team.
        Things may have changed since then.

        • Yesterday was the last day for players to enter the portal. There could have been some last minute entrants whose names would not show up on the web site lists yet, but otherwise the lists there are the lists.

          (I'm a little surprised how many there are there who haven't yet committed to a new school. At least not 'officially'.)

          --------------

          And minutes after I post this, Olivia Mobley from Ohio State and Emily Zumwinkle from Minnesota show up in the portal. 5th year scholarship squeeze?

          (And Ohio State's forward problem just got worse.)

          • Yes, the amount of girls still out in the portal is an enigma. I would be interested in hearing theories on this.

            • So the Big ten schools have limited amount of scholarships/money they can dole out. The ivies don't do scholarships they just give you financial aid. How do the Hockey East and CHA teams that aren't affiliated with Ivy's or the Big 10 handle athletic scholarships?

              Isn't the number of players in the portal simply 1- a function of lack of money and roster space due to the fifth year COVID thing? 2-marginal players looking for a greener grass when they were probably lucky to be where they were at to begin with?

                My guess is most the teams get the full allowed amount by NCAA - 18 scholarships and then the coach decides how to hand them out. So many of these players seem brilliant; a lot of them may qualify for other academic scholarships.

                I agree with your assessment of the players in the portal. I doubt the grass is greener for most players and wonder if some of them just don’t use out the rest of their eligibility.

                as an fyi the CHA got a name change and is now the AHA. Merged with a men’s league for operations.

                  Oops, I guess I should be paying better attention to some things.

                  • I suspect some posters are overlooking money related aspects that could lead to the portal. For example, the high school player from out west who only considered eastern teams because her parents would not be able to come to see many/any games might decide after a year or two in college that having her parents come visit wasn't a bad thing after all. Heck, I remember changing schools and majors (and foregoing a scholarship in the process) after realizing the career I had aimed for was not what I really wanted.

                    And as long as I am here, I wanted to comment about a post I saw a couple of weeks ago about some sports team making a profit. That would have been a serious mistake by the AD if true. Most (if not all) colleges and universities classify themselves as non-profits. As such, they have to offset every dollar of income with a dollar of "expense". Failure to do so would mean that donors to the school would lose the tax benefit they accrue with the donation. So every program has to create a couple of business units that are for-profit and can charge the non-profit entities for services rendered. For athletics, if you look at the cost an average student pays for classes and housing and meals (lets say $20,000) the "cost" of the equivalent services for an athlete will be listed at one and a half to twice that amount (say $37,000 in my example). So what are the profit centers in a typical university? Back when I last looked at this, university doctors were for-profit but university hospitals were not. There will be a for-profit business unit that owns all the copyrights and other income producing intellectual properties. University police and maintenance, facilities, travel agency, and a handful of others will all be for-profit.

                    Anyway, TMI for any one post.

                    • Yes, each school is allowed to fund up to 18 scholarships. There was a time not to long ago that some schools were not funding all 18. I don't think that is the case anymore.

                      I think the best gauge is to take a look at the roster size on what the school is doing.

                      The larger the roster, the more partials.

                      I still see a lot of girls that could help out a lot of teams. Boucher will definitely help UNH would be an example.

                        Looks like OSU fixed the forward problem. Wheeler now a Buckeye...

                          That gets you from 10 to 11 on the roster; sort of cancels out losing Mobley this week. It clearly helps, but going into a season with only 11 forwards can turn into a big problem if you get hit with any kind of injuries/illness, etc.

                            Maybe true. Maybe OSU is not done yet... that's why it's the off-season. OSU is always working.

                              Ohio State may not be done yet, but entries into the portal are. The list of available transfers is now fully known, and I'll dare say that the entries over the last couple weeks - outside of Wheeler and Mobley - haven't been all that impressive. Of course there are S-As still available; the question is the talent level.

                              • To my knowledge the best F in the portal, Natalie Mylinkova, has not committed yet.
