NCAA Rule Change Will Prohibit Schools from Blocking Student-Athlete Transfers

Previously, only players who did not play a snap in a season or were sidelined by injury before playing in more than four games were generally granted redshirts by the NCAA. "The new exception allows football players to preserve a season of competition if, for example, injuries or other factors result in them competing in a small number of games".

Beyond this change, the Transfer Working Group is considering other transfer issues, including the processes surrounding postgraduate transfers. The rule change ends the controversial practice in which some coaches or administrators would prevent students from having contact with specific schools.

Under the new rule, athletes would be permitted to be contacted when they notify their current coaches, who have two days to enter the names into a database created and managed by the NCAA that will alert schools who can be recruited.

However, under the new system, individual conferences can agree on their own transfer rules - like mandating time off of competion when an athlete transfers within his or her conference.

"This change promotes not only fairness for college athletes, but also their health and well-being". "I'm proud of the effort the Transfer Working Group put forth to make this happen for student-athletes, coaches and schools".

The rule changes were decided by the Division I Council in Indianapolis this week.

North Korean Denuclearisation To Start After Document Is Signed
Independent experts say the North could have enough fissile material for anywhere between about a dozen and 60 nuclear bombs. In 2012, North Korea agreed to suspend nuclear tests in exchange for food aid, then reversed course two weeks later.

"Redshirt football student-athletes are more likely to remain engaged with the team, and starters will be less likely to feel pressured to play through the injuries".

"This creates a safe place for student-athletes to have a conversation with their coaches and makes the whole process more transparent", Nicholas Clark said. Applications for the rule to be applied to other Division I sports is now being looked at by the council.

Much of the talk about transfers focuses on the so-called year-in-residence, the one year a player in the most high-profile sports such as football and basketball must sit out after switching schools. The NCAA also adopted a new policy this week that prevents schools from telling student-athletes where they can and can't transfer to.

If another school tampers with student-athlete, it could be a Level 2 violation.

That's one way the model could work, but there is no limitation, meaning that a player could be used in game one, then game eight, and then the Big Ten title game, and then the College Football Playoff and still count the year as a redshirt.
