    Texas Transfers

    http://sports.espn.go.com/ncf/news/story?id=2683102

    Skip to the bottom of the article, a DE and OT are transfering out to another school in order to have a better shot at playting time. Any speculation in the Cyclones favor?

    Re: Texas Transfers

    Dunno, but in a different thread a day or two ago it was decided that these players would have to sit an extra year to transfer within conference. So probably not.

    Re: Texas Transfers

    Missed that thread, sorry. In conference or out of conference you must still sit out a year. So would I be correct in assuming they must transfer to d1AA in order to play next season? Does it matter if they transfer before this year is over?

    Re: Texas Transfers

    Anybody hear that QB Jevan Snead is transferring from Texas because he wants to play somewhere??? Wonder what his thoughts are on Iowa State....And I know he would have to sit, but he's only a frosh this year isn't he?

    Re: Texas Transfers

    Sounds like he is heading to TCU.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    Anyone that transfers within the Big 12 will have to pay their own way. Which can be expensive for someone coming from out of state.

    Re: Texas Transfers

    Thats the problem with the power schools...(Texas, Ohio State, USC) they get studs every year in their recruiting classes. These guys dont often realize if they want to play a dominant role they sometimes have to go to the Iowa States.

    Re: great athletes at the power schools

    Yeah, prior to the schollie limits, Nebraska and others would load up with talented kids who saw little playing time in Lincoln. Many could have started in Ames and elsewhere. If I'm remembering right (and I'd like to think I am), the Bob Devaneys and Tom Osbornes of the collegiate world would get 'em in a Big Red uni as a defensive move...to keep them away from playing for others in the Big 8.

    Re: Texas Transfers

    I think you're right about the old days. I can remember Pete Taylor commenting on the games in Lincoln that it seemed like there were close to 150 players on the sideline. Many were wearing the same number. It was a tremendous advantage to have that much depth for practice and games. Most players didn't play till their junior or senior year unless they were really special, so the team had a big advantage in experience and size. As for the transfers, we've probably got no shot because of those conference rules.

    It seems to me that good athletes are more willing to possibly sit on the bench at one of the "big name" schools for 2-3 years than they are at lesser known schools even if there's been recent success there.

    Re: Texas Transfers

    There are ways around transfer rules within the Big 12. Transfer to a JC than to another Big 12 team. You will have to sit out a year anyway and you do not have to play at the JC, so you do not lose a year of playing time. There are draw backs, the player is still on the 5 year playing window time clock and you would have to get your JC degree before you could transfer. This would not work for everyone but it usually will for Freshman.
