It’s a puzzle.

Can someone explain to me how a kid can be outright dismissed from a program for the usual unspecified violation of team rules and the school still impose control over where he can transfer?

Clearly, Mark Richt has lost control over the dismissal rules.

    Bet Auburn hopes this doesn’t become SOP. Honestly I have very limited sympathy for the student athlete here. Best solution would be for the student to agree to the rules he broke to be specified by the school and the school to agree to let him transfer where ever he wishes. Open honesty on both sides. Never gonna happen.

    Well, it’s for the kids.

    Do you think this would have happened if the kid had been a five star coming out of HS and had legitimate NFL prospects? Just guessing but, he might have folks lining up to represent him in a suit against the university and the NCAA. Any thoughts?


  5. I’m sorry it makes perfect sense to me to restrict a player’s ability to transfer to a school your going to be playing the next season. Having a player on your roster that has an intimate and working knowledge of the oppositions playbook does seem like a competitive advantage that a school ought to be able to protect its self against. Generally I agree with letting kid come and go for better opportunities , just like Coaches, but common sense says backdoor stealing of the oppositions playbook should not be encouraged.

    I’m guessing “outright dismissed” does not also mean “released from scholarship”. That would seem to imply that they still own his butt and can place those restrictions.

    If you dismiss a kid you should not control his future.



    Really, GA State James Madison and Marshall….is NC STATE really worried about those schools. Very small minded thinking, IMHO…
