    Bizarre new NCAA rule

    Was reading Gregg Doyel this morning:

    "A student-athlete who earns an undergraduate degree in four years but still has one year of eligibility remaining --a medical redshirt , for example -can transfer into another college's graduate school and finish his or her career there---IMMEDIATELY . No sitting our a year . It's graduate, transfers and play .Another dumb rule right or wrong? ???

    Re: Bizarre new NCAA rule

    Is this the NCAA's way of rewarding athletes who graduate within 4 years??

    The most bizarre rule I've heard of. I wonder if we'll ever see it happen at ISU...

    Re: Bizarre new NCAA rule

    ... for the "Student-Athlete" that "ACTUALLY" happens to be a better rocket scientist than basketball player... then this is a good deal... I kind of doubt that there will be very many players opting out of their respective schools to become a rocket scientist elsewheres... ::)

    The way it makes sense

    Perhaps they are thinking about a student-athlete who is intending to go to graduate school at a different institution than where they took their undergraduate studies. If the student would normally get an undergraduate degree then go to a university specializing in graduate studies of their field then the NCAA is saying that is okay and that if the student-athlete wants to compete athletically then there is no penalty. Otherwise the student may "waste" a graduate year just to compete athletically.

    Re: Bizarre new NCAA rule

    We have to remember Doyel has only half a brain or so.

    Re: Bizarre new NCAA rule

    I doubt this rule will effect many athletes in Basketball or Football. My guess is this rule will be applied mostly to athletes in "minor" sports such as golf, tennis, etc.

    Vargas Wins Title as CSUB Places Ninth at Midlands Championships

    December 30, 2005

    EVANSTON, Ill. Senior Tommy Vargas (Highland, Calif./Northwestern) made his return to Northwestern University a strong one, winning the 133 pound title to lead the Cal State Bakersfield wrestling team to an ninth place finish at the 43rd Midlands Championship at Welsh-Ryan Arena in Evanston Thursday and Friday.

    <span style="color:#ff0000">Vargas, who earned his degree at Northwestern before transferring to Cal State Bakersfield to begin graduate work</span>, won his first four matches of the tournament to earn a spot in the finals. In that match, the unseeded Vargas scored a late takedown to earn a 97 victory over No. 7 seed Jesse Sundell of Iowa State.
