There’s been some mention of Luke Ford waiting for news from the NCAA that his transfer waiver request has been granted and how it doesn’t seem fair that he’s twisting in the wind while Tate Martell is busy getting snaps in Miami.
The NCAA wants you to know that fair’s got nothing to do with it.
Former Coastal Carolina offensive lineman Brock Hoffman is scheduled to transfer from the Chanticleers to Virginia Tech after spring semester to be closer to his mother, who recently had a brain tumor removed. It turns out that he may have to wait until 2020 to play for the Hokies, though.
Hoffman announced on his Twitter page that the NCAA denied his waiver for immediate eligibility and will force him to sit out the 2019 season before the clock starts on his final two years.
Here’s his tweet and, yeah, it’s a little infuriating.
Five miles and his mom’s not sick enough. Sure, that sounds reasonable.
If this sounds to you like there’s no rhyme or reason to it, well, you’re wrong. Let someone explain.
Luke, if you haven’t hired Mars yet, you might want to think about doing so.
