No effing rhyme or reason

It seems like the best way to guarantee the NCAA won’t grant a transfer waiver request is to have an ill relative.

UPDATE:  Oh, man.

The NCAA surprised Brian Hoffman again when they came back with another line of questioning — why didn’t Stephanie Hoffman, 50, retire (after her diagnosis and surgery) from her job as a teacher?

“We have almost a million dollars of medical bills,” Brian Hoffman said. “She’s a teacher and doesn’t have enough years to get full pay from her pension. We simply couldn’t afford it.”

These people.

“It is situational ethics at an epic level.”

This is perhaps the best thing I’ve seen written about the transfer portal.  It absolutely nails the train wreck bound to occur from the combination of a poorly written, unevenly enforced NCAA rule with the, um… fluid approach coaches have taken looking for loopholes when it suits them.  Which is half the time, of course.

Finish reading it, and it’s hard to come away not thinking a one-time transfer-without-penalty rule is an inevitability.

A simple question

Dear NCAA,

Is it possible for someone to obtain two transfer waivers in the same year?  Asking for a friend.

Sincerely,

SB

But that’s not what Saban said.

Damn it, did you have to screw up a good narrative?

Proving once again it’s not the numbers that bother coaches.  It’s the loss of control.

Why it’s hard to take coaches seriously on the transfer portal

Shot.

Chaser.

Of course, Eason had to sit out a year.  Maybe that’s what Petersen means by “old-school”.
