College football in the 2010s compared to the 2020s is an entirely different landscape. Paul Finebaum doesn't just think the current NIL and transfer portal frenzy is unsustainable; he believes it could be the end of the sport as we used to know it.

College football is slowly, but surely transitioning from an NCAA-run organization to something like a minor professional league. Eventually, the sport as we know it will probably be gone.

Finebaum thinks it's only a matter of time before college football is done and transitions to something entirely different.

“I don’t think this is a sustainable model that will last a couple years. It’s impossible to predict the break up of an organization like this because it moves so slowly,” Finebaum said, via Saturday Down South.

“But it is going to come apart, the NCAA is on its last breath and I think college football as we know it is on its last breath, and it’s happening with unbelievable speed, supersonic speed that I could not have predicted.”

Overreaction? Probably. But the point is that the sport is changing rapidly and before we know it we won't recognize it.

All of the transfer and NIL changes have been major benefits for the players. However, it's unregulated. The NCAA would be wise to add a few provisions to keep the sport in-tact.

What do you think about all of college football's recent changes?
