    Apparently Ohio State gets immediate help at QB by way of a Georgia transfer. Conveniently he is immediately eligible.

    I like the reported reason for immediate eligibility. So let me get this straight - last fall a baseball team player used a racial slur regarding this QB. The baseball team member was dismissed from the program within a week. Yet this is grounds for not having to sit out a year. He even has gone so far as to say the Georgia program and university (where his sister plays softball) created an experience for him consistent with diversity and inclusion. Seems much worse than something like transferring so you can be closer to your mother who is fighting life threatening cancer.

    NCAA - just keep NCAAing.
