Kids decide to transfer without asking or talking to coach. PNG? Cut off from training room etc?The era of D-1 free agency begins. I think the risk is that transfers will explode and G5, MAC and BE will become development (farm) teams for P5 programs. Either way, I hope we find a way to benefit from the new system.
so you are saying that the NCAA will enact a rule that will eventually screw over a majority of their constituantsAnd to make matters worse, transfer decisions frequently come at the end of the playing season after the recruiting cycle is over. The late signing date is in May ... we got lucky this year but in future years this could really make roster decisions chaotic and leave teams in the lurch.
That is probably true -- I see nothing in the NCAA release to the effect that the one-year penalty has been abolished. If it's still in effect, it may benefit developmental players more than starters. But transferring without even talking to your coach?Still have to sit a year
I'm sure there will be some that just up and leave - but kids will still inform their coach that they are going to be transferring. The DOFO will then put the kids name into the NCAA database. He's not going to tell the Chancellor he's transferringThey just have to inform the "school" and the school has to add their name to the transfer database.
Well the kids choose who they tell. I imagine it will depend on the kid - hopefully most will be responsible. It really doesn't matter that much b/c the coaches will find out one way or another. It just seems a little strange to take the coach out of it, although some (a few) coaches brought this on by blocking kids from certain schools (like UM did to us).I'm sure there will be some that just up and leave - but kids will still inform their coach that they are going to be transferring.

All going to depend on each individual but players coaches (like Dino, PJ Fleck, Frost, etc) I feel most players would tell them directly. Again - depends on each situation - but I still believe 95% of players will be telling their coaching staffs directlyWell the kids choose who they tell. I imagine it will depend on the kid.

Expect to see conference rules that prevent direct intra-conference transfers.Here’s the catch, though: this new rule is a nation rule, but that doesn’t mean it’s a catch-all. As the NCAA notes in it’s release: “Conferences, however, still can make rules that are more restrictive than the national rule.” Each league can still set up its own permission-to-contact rules.
I think it applies to any transfer. The improvement is that the player, after notifying the school of his decision to transfer, has his name placed in a database. This will make it easier for both the player and a school to make contact.Expect to see conference rules that prevent direct intra-conference transfers.
Does the new rule also apply to graduate transfers? E.g. can schools still block some of their destinations?
You're OK with Syracuse being a farm team for FSU and Clemson?I never understood the conference rule of not transferring. If the player is a superstar, why not let him stay in the ACC? Bowl $ in this situation along with being drafted helps the conference overall along with the obvious better talent.
Sure, if that's where the kid wants to go to school.You're OK with Syracuse being a farm team for FSU and Clemson?
Dino does all the legwork on a recruit, and if the kid becomes a stud, you want to lose him to a competitor?
Would you be OK if Oshea Brissett was playing for Duke or UNC this season?
