    This is hilarious! Didn’t the coaches push for this new redshirt rule?

    Nothing funny about this type of behavior. The RS change was one where there was universal agreement from players, coaches, and fans for all the positive reasons we expected. Yet the abuses by individuals are what grabs the headlines. Similar to the positives from the grad transfer rule, it is the disruptive use of transfers that threaten the sport. While many here support the “freedom” issues, the ability to manage program stability and development of programs are not unreasonable expectations. The player involved was a starter, now no longer available to the coach/team for an important game just days before it is played. It doesn’t take much imagination to see how disruptive this can become over time. Tip of the iceberg.

      You misunderstood, I view graduate transfers the right/best way, but the word “transfer” has been given a bad name by the abusive way some have used it. We all have seen the weird exceptions to the one year waiver rule, and even Kellen Bryant made the graduate transfer rule seem dirty.

      No, I am not against grad transfers, feel it is the cleanest, best use of transfers, along with truly needy transfers for genuine personal, family issues.

    How is a HC supposed to manage the team roster now? The NCAA’s rules are out of whack. The doctrine of unintended consequences on display.
