NCAA Transfer Rule
« on: January 18, 2018, 12:52:40 pm »
Rumor is the NCAA is finally about to break down and allow student athletes to transfer one time without having to sit out. This will be across the board in all sports. I like this because in today's world coaches move here and there at the drop off a hat or they get fired and tossed aside in a heart beat. A key point brought up and I agree is this will help programs in that middle ground area of programs when kids from top echelon programs transfer to get more playing time and also create more parity in the long run.

Also, scholarships are only promised on a year to year basis unlike back in the old days getting that 4 year scholarship. If the school has the right to cut ties with you on a year to year basis the player should be allowed that luxury once in their college playing career. I don't really see any negatives from this. It's 2018 after all....

I agree, I think this rule will benefit schools exactly at the level of what Arkansas is as a program the most. I think it will take about 5 or 6 years to see the full impact if this rule goes through. Basketball is going to be the sport where one or two transfers one a season could vault a team from middle of the pack to conference contender in one year. That will be the sport it impacts the most I feel. Football it will be all about the quarterback position that gets all the headlines and publicity when they transfer.

Does that mean this won't go into effect until after the 2019 academic year? As in like 18 months from now? I don't want to wait that long to see this lol....

Keep in mind that there are kids that will leave/transfer from here as well!

Possibly if we can go find them.  Why didn't they just come here in the first place?

You make good points, and I thought about that after I posted it. But I was more thinking of kids who go to smaller colleges and come up here. We seem to have luck with those guys weather it be Juco or smaller D1.

I would not be in favor of this at all.

*The worst year in college would have to be the freshman year.  A lot of people would transfer after that, especially if they have a junior in front of them and are going to have to sit another year.

* Also, coaches may start walking on eggshells worrying that if you coach a kid too hard, he can transfer anywhere he wants with no penalty.

* G5 schools may end up being a minor league system, especially in basketball.

Means they will revisit this next year. Jay Bilas seems to think it was all for show and to get a feel for what folks were thinking. Also said in his opinion it would never happen.

Who cares.... That rule is not meant for the coaches. Its meant for the players. If scholarships are technically only a year by year basis then the player should have the right to leave once without penalty. Coaches already have too much power. It's time to give the athletes who are the ones making the school money more power. Let's put people like you and me in helmets and pads and the product becomes pretty crummy real quick and no one would watch. It's the quality of the athletes that brings in money.  What if in the workforce we had stupid rules saying you get some kind of penalty when you change a job for a better opportunity for yourself on an individual level. This is 2018 and to pretend that the NCAA and individual schools are not corporate entities with the money they bring in is just laughable. Second, let's not kid ourselves because we know football and basketball is already a free minor league for professional teams anyway.

I agree that this rule has the potential to turn the G5 into a minor league system. Some kid with potential goes to an Ark St., Toledo, UCF, etc. lights it up his freshman year then he's on to a P5 school contributing the next year.

If this goes through, it looks to me like there will be college coaches recruiting another colleges players!  I don't think that will go over very well.

I’m sure they’ll put rules in place to prevent this at least somewhat
