NEW NCAA RULE-Players can transfer without school's permission
LINK /

Full NCAA.org report
LINK

In an effort to bring transparency and drive open conversation between student athletes and coaches, the DI Council has decided to adopt a new proposal, the NCAA announced today.

Starting in October, Division I student athletes will have the ability to transfer and receive a scholarship at another school without asking having to ask their current school or coach for permission.

In addition, in the event that a school “tampers” with a current student athlete at another school has been added to a list of potential Level 2 violations, making it a more serious offense.

The rule change ends the controversial practice in which some coaches or administrators would prevent students from having contact with specific schools. Conferences, however, still can make rules that are more restrictive than the national rule.

The days of Coach X restricting a player from transferring to another specific school, citing internet outrage about how coaches can leave but players can’t are numbered, unless a conference steps in with rules of their own.

The rule change will take effect October 15th.

Whole lot of Worms

To add to my thought I do believe it’s in favor of course to the student athlete which is great it’s just some schools and players will abuse this rule along the way.

I also believe the SEC will add multiple addendums to this which will dull this rule down quite a bit.

Well this is game changing stuff. Next will be no sitting out, it’s coming. Once it does then the student athletes will have the upper hand, (oh I’m not playing? I will be out and go to Bama and see you next year then).

This would be a disaster. Free agency in college football.

To get playing time due to less competition? If anything this will hurt Alabama the most.

Why shouldn't they have the upper hand? They're the talent that's putting money into the school coffers.

I'm a fan of players getting to play in up to 4 games without it counting as a year of eligibility

great move

Ehh, superstars on smaller teams or losing teams will transfer to programs like Alabama without punishment to get more time on TV and a chance at a title.

It'll be a net positive for them for sure.

Personally, I think that would be fun. Guys that didn’t get big time offers out of HS, but end up being good at smaller schools can transfer to a bigger program. Then guys that don’t pan out at big programs don’t have to sit around until they graduate, or risk sitting out a year.

I just believe if this makes things a free for all it’s hard to build quality teams around players who only stick around one or two years. Every player gets disgruntled at some point due to playing time or how hard a coach rides them during practice or a workout.

no, they won't make that change. It would be chaos, with players transferring multiple times. It won't happen.

Great...now maybe we can keep a decent transfer QB on our roster at all times since we cant develop the guys we actually sign out of high school.

So they are actually putting something in that makes sense. Good for the NCAA.
