Division I transfers for all sports get blanket waiver from NCAA, can play immediately

 

It's not a permanent end to the stupid rule, it only covers this school year. Hopefully the final nail will come at a meeting next month.

This rule is one of those, I dislike, but I believe if it wasn't in place, hundreds of kids would be transferring at the drop of the hat, if they didnt like the way the coach spoke to them, or an alumni offered there a better enticement elsewhere.

 

I get doing away with it this school year.

So?  Why shouldn't they be allowed to do that?  All other students can.  Coaches can.  Athletic directors and conference officials can.  University Presidents can.  NCAA administrators can.  Why are athletes held hostage?

Most of those in your list are paid employees and not students,

 

And some of these students are on full ride scholarships, so there is the issue of them moving, takes aware somebody else from using that scholarship right away, if I remember the NCAA large rulebook correctly.

First sentence is exactly my point.  That the student-athletes have fewer privileges than other students and university/conference/NCAA employees is the precise problem.  There is no good reason that I've ever heard that athletes with eligibility shouldn't be allowed to go play at whatever school will have them.  If a chemistry major who is not on the basketball team can do it, why can't a chemistry major on the basketball team do it?  If a coach can leave and coach right away somewhere else, why can't the players?

 

Your second sentence is incorrect.  If a player transfers out the school has the scholarship back to use for another athlete the next semester.  Since the vast majority of transfers occur in the offseason for the respective sport, this is a non-issue.

thank you for the correction and I appreciate it.

 

I guess either the rule as evolved or my brain took a dump. :)

 

With that said, I believe I need to rethink my opinion on this.

The notion that athletes, revenue athletes in particular, are students has long existed on shaky ground. And this "season" it was exposed for what it really is....a farce. How many schools said it wasn't safe enough for students to be on campus for in-person classes, but having the money-making athletes on campus practicing, working out and playing games was? They are not students, they're just expected to attend and pass classes so the schools don't have to classify them as employees.

This would make it permanent.
