Player Transfers/Going Pro

Recommended Posts

@CoachPelvisPresley I could have sworn I seen something on the internets about the NCAA’s newer, more lenient take on player transfers. There’s a horrible double standard here. QBs can transfer and get immediate eligibility because of a case of Martellhurt, but a no name lineman or backup TE can’t? That’s total Martell. All players are equal to the NCAA, it’s just that some players are a little more equal. Let the kids be able to transfer and be eligible wherever they wind up.

As Texas waited to see how all these waivers fell out and then files McCoy's waiver...and they were all being allowed through until probably the most worthy waiver request is denied, then McCoy's probably the second most (with a coach/school hiding the negotiation of the coach's hiring to the pro's until the day after national signing day to hold recruits that would have bolted)...I am concerned for Texas that his will be denied as well. I have this feeling that people have fussed and so that as a screen to not ok everyone and then X his, they X this one and then they will X McCoy's real soon too. Hoffman will appeal it and be re-approved but McCoy will still be denied. I just have this feeling. Hope I'm wrong though.

I think McCoy has a more legitimate reason for a waiver than Fields and Martell. I feel bad for that kid though, that's just not fair.

I know @Stoney and @ETXfan16 that's why these stories over the last week worry me for Texas. I suspect something bad coming down the pike for McCoy's request and then there will be a total meltdown based on all these other yahoos getting their waivers approved.

I was kind of surprised to see McCoy play in the Orange/White Game...guessing it was cleared through the Compliance Office, I mean our compliance person was all over us paper whipping me on every kid I had before they could even take part in a live practice, so that's what the whole waiver thing for me has been a weird thing... 

Now there at a big school...a couple of asst and the football operations guy are probably handling it all.

I’d want UT to riot, storm the NCAA headquarters and burn it down. Give me absolute chaos over the NCAA.

Can we just call the NCAA Transfer Portal what it really is, QB free agency? You have non skill position players being denied waivers due to mileage, familial bonds not being close enough or health situations not being dire enough but Justin Fields can transfer over 500 miles from Georgia to Ohio State and be granted immediate eligibility? Bull!! The players, the coaches, the schools need to wise up and say to hell with the NCAA.

Exactly. This transfer portal only applies to QBs and anyone trying to transfer to Texas. 😂

SG Quentin Grimes is transferring from KU to UofH, will apply for a waiver to play immediately. 

 

 

I think he's the 3rd Jayhawk off last year's basketball team to transfer out, something is up.

I think the NCAA hammer gets dropped there...Too much smoke in Lawrence between Adidas and some other player issues they have dealt with the past few years...
