“Beginning in October, student-athletes who want to transfer to another school can not be blocked by their current school & don’t need permission to transfer. Transfers will go into a national transfer database, allowing other coaches to contact them directly”

It could get crazy.

If you’re happy with good enough, then good enough is what you’ll be. Greatness requires the expectation of excellence.

This is a terrible idea…While it sounds “fair” it will create a huge environment for corruption…..A school, coach, booster that doesn’t care what it takes can use this new rule to offer money or some other under-table incentive to the athlete or some surrogate to coax him into making a transfer.

Pirates function as a team. There were a lot of castes and classes in England at the time. But with pirates, it didn’t matter if you were black, white, rich or poor. The object was to get a treasure. If the captain did a bad job, you could just overthrow him.

Spot on. It can also increase under the table transactions in house. Gotta keep them happy so that they stay where they are. If you are a “have” school like CU or Bama you’re not gonna like this change. If you are a traditional “have not” then I think most will be okay with it.

We’ll see how it pans out.  Taking lots of transfers and Juco’s is a double edged sword if done wrong.  Recruits see it as a way for coaches to disrupt their way “up the ladder” so desperate coaches that use this too often may find recruiting harder as recruits won’t be able to trust that they will get a turn a starting. 

Also there are benefits.  Clemson is still a destination location and after next year if we put 5DL in the NFL and Dabo goes on TV and says “We need D-Linemen next year” it could open the doors for a 1-2 year player to plug an immediate need. 

Kids will move around more and schools will have to do less to piss off their athletes as they will have more freedom. 

It might force coaches salaries even higher as staff changes can impact where players want to be.  yikes
