Council changes transfer rules, permits immediate eligibility for transfers who are academically eligible/in good standing at prev. school & meet progress-toward-degree requirements at new school.

Decision not final until meeting ends Thurs, must be ratified by DI Board Monday.


I know the SEC doesn't allow immediate in-conference eligibility for football during the spring, but I can't imagine that the SEC would want to be the conference that holds back student athletes from being able to make this type of decision.

I know it sounds like they're opening the floodgates, but this right here is actually how they're going to limit things.

I think the transfer rules are rediculous and they are why NIL has had such a negative impact

BUT you’re being silly

Degree progress is a specific calculation and can be affected by classes from one school not transferring properly to another school.

They are enforcing academic standards, which is how this should have been policed from the beginning.

As far as I know, the courts have never struck down the NCAA's authority to enforce academic standards.

The NCAA''s message should have been "academics" from the start.

There is no way these multiple transfers are maintaining progress towards degrees.

the courts haven’t ruled on something like this

NIL ruling was about the NCAA prohibiting players from making money outside the sport.

I don’t know what law transfer rules would run aground with.

Yes they have. They issued an injunction which triggered the immediate eligibility due to selective enforcement of the NCAA's waiver process. If the NCAA were smart, they would just get rid of the waivers for immediate eligibility for transfers and they'd probably be fine with making ALL transfers sit a year. The NCAA just screwed up by reviewing, case by case, a bunch of hardship waivers to play immediately and then pick and chose when they would approve or not approve those waivers. That's why the courts got involved and did what they did because the NCAA was sued. The underlying case hasn't been heard, but it seems like the NCAA is taking the path of least resistance to make the lawsuit moot instead of addressing a glaring issue in collegiate athletics.

The NCAA caused this by not creating a pay program for players.

It's not football that will be totally screwed up with this; as the season is primarily locked into the fall semester.

Basketball is both fall and spring. "Immediate eligibility" is the key phrase; if you can enroll in a different school for the spring, AND you happen to be a good player, some kids will jump. Maybe a good point guard at some mid major, and Kentucky needs an upgrade at that position to make a run (they notice it's a weakness during the preconference schedule).

Or baseball, which is spring and into the summer- LSU and Florida are both loaded with talent that expected to go to Omaha. They most likely don't even see a regional.
Tommy White and Jack Caglione could try to enroll in summer classes at Arkansas or A&M etc, and be "immediately eligible" for the Super Regional, or CWS.

I want to see how this rule is actually written.

This is about eligibility. It reads as if players can transfer an unlimited amount of times and not sit out, but that doesn’t mean that there aren’t still portal windows on when they are allowed to transfer. We need to see the whole rule before overreacting.

It is beyond me how there is no talk of a contract in this process. It's all backwards

I agree that the NCAA is going to take the path of least resistance and allow unlimited transfers, with immediate eligibility. They know they're going to lose the lawsuit. Courts don't like to restrict movement, especially when it is tied to college students deciding where they wish to pursue an education, regardless of how tenuous the connection between academics and athletics may be.

The Department of Justice is a party to one of the lawsuits challenging the "restrictive" transfer policies of the NCAA. The NCAA will likely just fold, rather than suffer another costly loss in court.

This is fake news. They get paid over 6 figures at some schools. They even get monthly stipends that are damn good income. 10 years ago when data was released on the stipends, a school like Tennessee paid their players a $630/month stipend. Athletes also get up to $500/month for making good grades. Now add free room, free food, free education and it's a damn good living.
