The NCAA Slightly Changes How It Handles Transfers
So, most College Football fans know the NCAA isn't the quickest to make common sense rule changes. There's also a lot of rule changes that they eventually get around to that don't make much sense. But it sounds like this one might actually make a lot of sense.
Here's the breakdown from the Louisiana Radio Network:
"The NCAA has eased the restrictions that have been placed on college athletes when it comes to transferring. Under the new rule, student-athletes no longer have to get permission from their current school or coach if they want to play at another school, even if it’s in the same conference. Tiger Rag Associate Editor James Moran says it’s a good move by the NCAA as schools shouldn’t control where a person gets an education.
The other rule change will allow football players to play up to four games and still receive a red-shirt, which gives them another year of athletic eligibility."
