I readily admit I have no idea what the NCAA is doing these days. They make decisions that only further their own destruction and eventual dismantling.

The interest level can’t keep up with this continued idiocy

Kids take a chance getting into the portal. They lose their scholarships at their current school and may not get one at another college. Hopefully jumping into the portal is a well thought out process with a destination already in mind but these kids can be compulsive.

“Pretty soon, guys will be playing for the highest bidder on a weekly basis.”
———-

Not weekly, but it’s not a big stretch to picture in season transfers similar to how MLB has an in season trade deadline that allows teams to beef up areas of need (especially pitching) for the playoffs.

Not immediate transfers. There will still be a window.

This rule just clarifies what you have to do to be eligible for the portal automatically. So if you drop out of school mid semester because you want to hit the next portal, it won't be automatic. You're going to have to go through extra steps to be permitted. This rule creates an Incentive to stay in school.

Academically eligible? Some of these mercenaries never set foot in a classroom. How would they know? It’s a joke.

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

What’s the catch? They transfer, take classes at the new school, etc. Isn’t that progress?

It's immediate eligibility, not unlimited eligibility.

Keep telling yourself that

All these rules changes came about because someone took the NCAA to court and beat them. NIL money, transferring without sitting out a year, etc.

You now have immediate eligibility, if you are academically up to par. With that rule in place, someone is going to swap schools during the season- enroll in a different school in January in basketball is the obvious choice; they will challenge the NCAA because academics are semesters, not sports seasons, will meet the stated criteria, and win. And then, it will become commonplace within a year to see multiple people do it.

A best-case scenario is that the "haves" like the SEC start setting up feeder schools; LSU can "call up" a guard or forward from Nicholls, etc. They might also process lower bench players to said schools, to meet scholarship limits... IF you even bother with scholarships at this point. You could just have a walk-on get NIL deals to match scholarships in cost, plus whatever else he can make. Chuck Oliver today pointed out that BYU started lining up NIL deals for walkons (completely covering room and board) a month after NIL became legal. They currently have a roster of over 130, counting both walkons and scholarship players... none of which pay a penny of their own in tuition, room and board, etc.
As he specifically stated, LSU certainly has that same ability, to where (for example) having 89 guys on scholarship is not an issue. The limit is 85, but anyone over that limit will still get a free ride, it will just have a different name. And there's no rule that states you have to be a scholarship guy to play, or start.

They have more freedom to change teams than the pros do.

Not sure if serious.

The NCAA has a time guideline where you have to be on track for a degree in (I think) 5 years.

So not only are you supposed to be maintaining your GPA and taking hours, but they have to be the right hours to keep you progressing towards your degree.

You can't just take 12 hours of easy classes each semester to maintain your gpa.

If you are transferring schools every year, which often means losing credits at the new school, changing majors, etc., it sets you back on your progress to degree.

Could a high-dollar NIL deal include a no transfer provision? Or a non-compete clause?

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


Agreed. I think that this means that you have to be required to be immediately eligible while pursuing the same degree that you were pursuing at your previous school. I'm not 100% sure if that is what this means, but if they were to do that it would make transferring more difficult.
