NCAA about to dump permission transfer rule

    The Phil Martellis and Bo Ryans are going to have to figure out another way to fuck over the kids. NCAA is looking at a rule that would allow athletes to transfer wherever the hell they want, without having to ask the school for permission:


    It's about friggin' time they did this. Why should any educational institution have the right to restrict where a student can choose where to go to school and participate in that school's extracurricular activities.

    Not a bad idea. I look at the kid from Pitt, Tom Savage. Played as a freshman at Rutgers, transfers to Arizona has to sit out. Transfers again to Pitt, has to sit out another year. So now he's finally getting a shot as a senior.

    Look at Jacob Coker at Florida State. Redshirts as a freshman, sits behind EJ Manuel the next year. Now he's a redshirt sophomore stuck behind some wunderkind phenom. Gotta be thinking "Damn, I could start at 80 percent of the D-I schools out there and why I am wasting away on the bench here?" Not saying it is the coach's fault all the time, but they should be able to move on and get on with their lives without too great of a penalty.

    It would be even fairer if they paired this with a rule change that eliminates the need to justify cutting a scholarship athlete loose at the end of each year. If it's a free market, why should a coach/school have to even think for a second about keeping a kid they don't want any more? Hired and fired, the only way to go.

    As long as the street runs both ways.

    My major concern --- and I'm sure this is a big reason the rule exists in the first place --- is that it would become a recruiting free-for-all, with schools constantly trying to entice players to transfer early and often. I've dealt with that too much with high schools --- Joe Stud suddenly decides to live at grandma's house and play for rival school --- and it's just an invitation for even more corruption than already exists today. No easy answers.

    If a kid quits or gets kicked off the team/out of school he should have to pay back the cost of his scholarship then.

    Schools and coaches have been doing that for years already. Only in the last year have they been allowed to offer multi-year scholarships. Previously, it was year by year. Coaches run kids off all the time.

    If a coach has a losing season, they should give back their salaries, right?
    There already is the free-for-all for coaches. Why should players be treated any differently?

    Coaches get fired for losing. No need for a give-back.

    Try to be a little smarter. I know it's asking a lot.

    Actually, coaches under contract still get paid when they're fired. Their contracts are guaranteed.

    Your effort is lacking.

    Of course, the other nine guys who get fired for sucking don't get paid.

    But I guess you aren't smart enough to understand that.

    Using your idiot logic from earlier, those coaches should not only be fired, but also have given back their salaries, right?
