Meanwhile Emory Jones is on his 13th school in 2 years.
All joking aside, how does the NCAA explain cases like Emory Jones’?
UNC is appealing their Kent State WR transfer as he’s also out.
They’ve appealed and denied twice I think. Their board of trustees had an emergency meeting this week to discuss as well, which is kinda crazy. It’s just ridiculous and so unfortunate for all the kids caught up in this.
As the chicken said in Charlotte’s Web “true, true, true”
BTW, where is Braxton Beverly enrolled this year?
Wish ALL schools would ignore these stupid rulings. Know that isn’t possible and won’t happen.
The NCAA seemingly answers to know one. Most coaches are not aware of the transfer rules. I asked a coach where the NCAA was located. He had no idea. This coach is a Power 5 football coach. I asked 4 different coaches at different levels. Finally a JUCO coach said Indianapolis. The compliance officers are typically inexperienced. They are the ones writing the appeals. If you think this is bad, try to figure out what is on the “banned substance “ lists. The list is vague, no actual named products mentioned. Things like caffeine are banned. Yes, caffeine. Yet, they sit kids for that as well. The NCAA overlords are dictators that answer to know one . They do what they want, when they want and how they want: They Suck!
For years they were located in Shawnee Mission, Kansas - a suburb of KC. They moved to Indy a few years ago. Their primary purpose is to conduct championships at all three levels of college sports. They tend to do that very well. The more they’ve gotten into enforcement over the past 50 years, the more they look bureaucratic and incompetent.
I said it on an earlier thread, Kopp is getting royally screwed. His case is the perfect example of how the NCAA selectively enforces rules.
My son benefited from transferring, but I’m still in favor of the one transfer exemption, to prevent the JT Daniels and Emory Jones fiascos, and there should be exceptions to every rule.
As Kopp indicated, he knew the situation when Sanders got the job, but his dad advised him to keep an open mind. If Sanders hadn’t explicitly told these kids ( and most specifically the QBs) to hit the portal, then maybe he stays and competes, or even if he still decides to transfer, the NCAA might have a case to deny the waiver. These kids had no choice. Even if they stayed, the chances were Sanders would’ve pulled the scholarship because he needed them for all the incoming transfers and then he’s stuck paying for a school that isn’t helping his learning disability. Agree with BC, the NCAA sucks.
Colorado had 5 QBs transfer.
The scholarship is a year to year basis. Coaches don’t even have to “pull” scholarships. They Just don’t renew them if they want them gone. The NCAA reviews appeals on a case by case basis. The review boards are typically set up for each conference. That’s why the appeals are all over the board. Different boards, different situations equal different decisions. Completely insane. Side note. Try to find out who’s on these boards and how to contact them. Virtually impossible.
The Tez Walker situation here in NC is insane, too. He started at NC Central in 2020 and they canceled their entire season before it even started because of COVID. He transferred to Kent and played two seasons. Then his entire coaching staff left. Since he had been sharing care for an aging grandmother back in NC he decided to transfer much closer to home. They implemented the new rule after he transferred and now - like Kopp - he’s screwed.
Yeah, until this year, a coach leaving was considered a valid reason to transfer without losing eligibility. NCAA does not care about the student athletes.
Agree. I know they’re for one year. I was just equating pulling with not renewing. Every Colorado player who entered the portal after that meeting should’ve been granted a waiver if needed.
And now Beat suUCks!
The NCAA is an organization run by the Presidents and Athletic Directors of the member schools. They have hired permanent staff members to implement their rules. The member schools have the power to change or not change the things you are talking about. They made the rules.
How about Ben Bryant? Cincinnati to Eastern Michigan to Cincinnati to Northwestern. I don’t think he’s ever sat out.
Again…. Different boards for different conferences coming to different conclusions on appeals. We know how it’s happening. The question is why isn’t it a set of rules applied evenly regardless of the conference, situation etc……
