Oh god no, just know it in my heart.
It won't bite.
And I hate the dangling response where you start off on a neat line of thinking, lose your thought then forget it STAYS in the response window for eternity. I was weaving this delightful story of Penn State and buttt stuff and never finished...
Why I’m not holding my breath on Bolton. Nothing the ncaa does ever makes sense. This kid left UGA to be closer to his sick grandfather.
Whatever the right thing is to do, expect the NCAA to do the opposite.
Malou was banned from NCAA because a couple of courses didn’t “transfer”.
KU has their shoe company pay players, and they get off free.
They throw in a few, what they think are inconsequential, decisions in favor of athletes from non-big name schools so they can claim to be fair and impartial.
NCAA is a hellish mesh of incompetence and corruption. One or both is likely to bite you in the ass if you are not a top favored school.
As much as I kinda hate the NCAA administration of rules this seemed like a weak case. They weren't just asking for a waiver, they were asking for a waiver of rules for waivers. Throw in it was Illinois and there was no way this had a chance. Waivers that waive even the guidelines for waivers are reserved for schools like Notre Dame who got Jessica Shepard illegible without even having to disclose the basis for the waiver at all. We can assume it was because her coach at Nebraska was a big meanie and hurt her feelings but no one knows.
Honestly. Not sure I would approve for a grandfather unless he was raised by them instead of his parents.
Ok I'm not of fan of the NCAAs inconsistencies as much as anyone else but why should he be eligible to play immediately just to be close to his sick Grandfather? He can still transfer to Illinois immediately to be nearby his Grandfather but will just have to sit out a year to play. Am I missing something else?
Hopefully his grandpa's around in two years to see him play.
I don’t disagree but it’s just the amount of inconsistency from the ncaa. Why approve Tate Martell for immediate eligibility and not this kid?
They either need to make everyone sit under any circumstance or let everyone be eligible under any circumstance.
Have to be within 100 miles from his grandpa and hes 107 miles
I'm growing more in favor of the idea kids should just get 5 years to play 5. No more waiver or redshirt crap, if a kid gets hurt he still can play 4. If a kid wants to transfer for any reason then so be it.
I hate seeing guys commit to schools only to leave after a year or 2 but the inconsistency the NCAA has at granting 1 kid a waiver and not another if they just leveled the playing field it would make the whole transfer thing a lot less complicated. The guys with pro ambitions probably wont play 5 years and some guys may just get their degree and leave after 4 still anyways. Probably would reduce some of the parity in competition too as the big time programs usually are heavy on recruits with ambitions to play pro anyways and many of them dont stay 4 years.
Or they could just honor their commitment and stay. If they can’t do that they should have to sit out. If there’s a special circumstance for needing to leave, they can apply for a waiver.
Are you willing to give a full four year guaranteed scholarship for that? Honoring the other side of the commitment and all that?
I’d agree that if a player is told their scholarship will not be renewed, then that should be grounds for the waiver approved.
I think if the head coach leaves or the assistant that recruited them leaves they should be able to transfer. Special circumstances are hard each situation is different but a non sit out transfer should be given if their head coach leaves IMO
Tate Martell hired a lawyer for his waiver process.
Justin Fields also hired a lawyer for his waiver process. Read about him here. This guy has helped around 50 kids get waivers over the years.
You want to know why they got waivers? Because they NCAA doesn't want to test their transfer rules in court. Want a guaranteed waiver? Right now hire a lawyer.
So does Mr. Bolton have such sterling legal representation...?
