If Matt Hayes is right about this, then the APR will have been good for something:
It looks as though the NCAA finally will look into the possibility of immediate eligibility after a transfer for players affected by coaching turnover. Although any legislation must clear significant hurdles, there is momentum for such an idea after the recent release of the Academic Progress Rates showed a direct correlation between declining scores and coaching changes. . . .
It’s a sensible idea, but where is this momentum coming from? The schools? Aren’t they the ones who propagate the myth that the kid commits to the institution, not the coach?
And outside of Bobby Petrino, for whom this would be like his own personal Marshall Plan, you wonder how the coaches will react to this proposal.
