    NCAA transfer eligibility rules (re: Royce White)

    Here is what I found in the NCAA transfer rule book regarding when an athlete would be eligible at their new school:

    http://www.rolltide.com/fls/8000/fil...sfer_guide.pdf

    Some highlights (or lowlights for us):


    You must spend one academic year in
    residence at your new school before you

    are eligible to play.

    For your academic year in residence to count
    toward your eligibility to play, you must sit
    out only at the school where you intend to
    play. And you must be a full-time student.
    You cannot meet this requirement by going
    part time or by not being in school at all.
    For a semester or quarter to count toward
    your one academic year in residence, you
    must be enrolled full time (which is generally
    at least 12 credit hours) and you must be
    enrolled before the 12th day of class.

    So, that does not sound good for his chances. Some wondered that since he was granted his release before the start of the second semester (online article dated Feb. 3 says he was granted his release - not sure if that was before the start of the second semester at the U of M or not but it doesn't look like it would matter) if the NCAA would count his spring semester at Minnesota and fall semester at Iowa State as the year of sitting out. This information says that is not the case.

    However, if you read on through the manual, it talks about a one time exception to the transfer rule where an athlete does not have to sit out. Problem is, that exception does not apply to basketball players. No luck there.

    Final option that I can see is petitioning the NCAA for a hardship waiver that would set aside the requirement to sit out a year. We have seen this happen when a player needs to transfer closer to home due to a family situation. I would have a very difficult time imagining the NCAA saying that he would be eligible for this waiver since the problems involved that caused him to transfer were legal matters he put himself in the middle of.

    Unless there is something that I can't find, I don't see how he has any chance of being eligible at a Division I school before fall of 2011. If anyone can document anything different, let's take a look at it.

    Logic pretty much says theres no way he could play next year.

    However, everything I'm hearing he wouldn't even be sought after by the schools he is if he couldn't play next year...take it FWIW.

    You didn't include the entire rule. There was more to the NCAA's rational and rule making....

    You must spend one academic year in
    residence at your new school before you

    are eligible to play.


    For your academic year in residence to count
    toward your eligibility to play, you must sit
    out only at the school where you intend to

    at least 12 credit hours) and you must be
    enrolled before the 12th day of class.

    This rule to all NCAA Division 1 schools with the exceptions of the following crucial schools: Kansas, Kentucky, Duke, North Carolina and any other school that happens to be 'hot' at the time. All schools not listed above are ****ed!

    Does he have any 'baggage?' Risk?

    Maybe, as a new coach, Fred can pull a Costanza-getting-busy-on-his-desk-with-the-maid and say "Was that wrong? If I had any idea that that type of thing was frowned upon, then I wouldn't have done it."
