Tate Martell could break college football's transfer system
quote:

Publicly, it’s presumed Martell will challenge for immediate eligibility citing Ohio State’s sudden coaching change from Urban Meyer to Ryan Day. Martell’s lawyer, Travis Leach, has said as much. But Martell’s waiver will have more layers than that. You should fully expect Martell to cite a number of previous precedents in his appeal, including potential “egregious behavior” by Ohio State or the more recent modification to the wavier guidelines that allows an athlete to cite "documented mitigating circumstances that are outside the student-athlete's control and directly impact the health, safety and well-being of the student-athlete." Fifty-one of 64 NCAA players who appealed for immediate eligibility since that modification saw their waivers approved, per the most recent NCAA data.

One does not need much mental exercise to connect potential “mitigating circumstances” for Martell to Ohio State’s offseason issues with Urban Meyer and Zach Smith. CBS Sports previously reported Martell considered using those program transgressions as a reasoning for transfer prior to the season; one might surmise that was a leak by Martell's camp to show Martell considered transferring before Fields arrived.

“There were some things that happened at Ohio State that we can potentially get some relief from the NCAA, and we’re going to try it that way,” Leach told the Toledo Blade. “The coaching staff turnover is an issue. There are a few things. There’s no real bright-line test that tells you 100 percent how you can get a waiver. This is a tough one, but there are some good facts on his side.

Good for him. When a coach leaves, players should have the option to transfer.

I don't think he'll break it, but some changes need to occur. Contracts mean nothing to these coaches or administrations, so why should signing a LOI or receiving a scholarship be any different? Sitting out a year makes sense if environmental changes within the program remain consistent with that for which the student signed, but an instance where the person they agreed to play for left, why should they be penalized and have to stay, or sit out for a year during their prime development time? We're holding these kids to a higher standard than we are the people in charge of them.

I think Justin Fields just did that already. Everyone and anyone will sue for this right going forward citing various hardships.

Every coaching contract has some sort of buyout provision that allows for a "breaking."

You're making my point. They go into it with the expectation of breaking it at some point. It means nothing to them.

Since scholarships are only a year to year thing, they should be allowed to go elsewhere for certain things like coach change, family, or school sanctions.

If a coach can pull a kids scollie, why should the kid be punished for leaving as well.

If it’s that much of a risk I would imagine the NCAA would tell OSU to release martell from scholarship and allow him to transfer freely

Would you ever sign a contract for anything that didn't have an "out" clause?

Not to mention that these coaches can also cut these dudes without penalty every season.

Nope.

I understand what you're getting at, and I think if the coaches have that ability, the players should as well.

Or, he could just say that somewhere, somehow, someway, he once heard the N-word on the Columbus campus.





















Thank God for Rap music (and, I use the term "music" lightly).
