    Default NCAA Rule Changes

    NCAA approved a couple of new rules:

    Football only: Players can play in 4 games and still preserve a redshirt. After this season, the committee will monitor and discuss applying to other sports.

    https://www.ncaa.org/about/resources...-opportunities


    All sports: Coaches can no longer restrict/block transfers to certain schools. The new system allows a student to inform his or her current school of a desire to transfer, then requires that school to enter the student's name into a national transfer database within two business days. Once the student-athlete's name is in the database, other coaches are free to contact that individual. Conferences can make more strict rules to this though.

    I predict, a byproduct of this will be a lot more players being used in every game.

    Why? That wouldn't be smart..play true freshman first 4 games to see if they can contribute, if they don't..redshirt them.

    Football and Basketball coaches are not going to like releasing athletes within their conferences, especially if the other programs recruited the athlete. I could see where Conferences make adjustments at the request of their AD and coaches.

    Do they still have to sit a year after transferring?

    That affects 1/5 of the classes on the roster.

    The other change affects the other four/fifths.

    If a kid wants to transfer because he isnt playing, there is a reason that kid isn't playing. Coaches trying not to get fired from million dollar gigs aren't making sure everybody gets to play. Whoever they think will help them win will play. The redshirt rule have a way bigger impact..you can play all your freshman for 4 games and still redshirt them..if 4/5 of your roster wants to transfer to another sun belt school something went terribly wrong

    I think it means we see young guys in the last 3 or 4 games of a bad season to get them some seasoning for next year that otherwise wouldn't have played because of a redshirt.

    I still predict, a byproduct of this will be a lot more players being used in every game.

    Especially at the schools with 85 scholarship players that were 4 and 5 star recruits. Each of whom think they are the best ever.

    Without playing time, the talent graveyard exit gates have been opened.

    Good observation, red shirt proof players will see end of season action.

    So a coach will put a guy on the field that isn't as good as the guys in front of him to make sure the 3rd string special teamer doesn't transfer? Transfers still have to sit a year..this is also NCAA rule and conferences can make their own ruling. The play 4 games and still redshirt is a way bigger deal.

    You will see a lot of freshman play at the end of each season. It will not be necessarily for seasoniNg however. It will be due to injuries. You won't have to move a TE to tackle foR example. It is a great rule from a player safety view. I think it really will help mid majors which often have depth concerns.

    I'm not getting sidetracked by what conferences might do. It is an unknown.

    Once they declare their policy to combat transfers we can discuss it.

    As the NCAA announced ease of transfer rule applies, coaches will worry more about keeping 5-star bench warmers happy.

    good point, but there must be a catch, they wouldnt make rule to help mid major

    Yeah because that's who the coaches are thinking about..5 star bench warmers..like they don't have a mile long list of 5-Star bench warmers ready to take their place. You are missing on this. Talent graveyards aren't worried about about replacing talent. Sitting out a year still is and always be the controller of transfers. A guy from the SEC who wants to transfer still has his pick of the other 114 schools in D1 if he is willing to sit

    If a coach isn't "thinking about" it, they better.

    Before now disgruntled players had a whole season to think about it.

    Now they can transfer on a whim and the school has "2" days to comply.

    Yeah because schools don't contact kids now without permission 🙄. If a kid wants out he is out..if a kid doesn't want to be there why would a coach keep him there to be a cancer? This certainly will have Little to zero affect on us and mainly affect the SEC who is the biggest "blockers" of transferring in conference. They still have to sit out
