NCAA Changes Redshirt Rule

NCAA Changes Redshirt Rule

Student-athletes' schools make a commitment of time and money in giving them an opportunity to play at their school and get an education.

Effective October 15, athletes can inform his or her current school of a desire to transfer, then require that school enter the student's name into a national transfer database within two business days. The intent was to discourage coaches from poaching players from other schools and creating a college "free agency".

The other rule change involves the permission-to-contact system for transfers.

While conferences can still vote to create more restrictive legislation - such as preventing in-conference moves - this ruling should decrease the number of instances in which schools block players from transferring.

Reserve running back A.J. Turman was kept from talking to some schools by Smart in the coach's first spring running the program in 2016.

Now, coaches will be able to. Notable recent transfers for Florida State include Leticia Romero, Chatrice White, A.J. Alix and just recently, Malik Osborne. In conjunction with the change, tampering with another school's players will carry a stiffer, level 2, NCAA penalty.

"I don't think that's going to be a big deal", Smart said at the league meetings of the transfer changes.

The benefits are many, Division I Council chairman Blake James said in an NCAA news release on Wednesday.

The long-awaited transfer reform ended up being a narrow change, but should provide more freedom for athletes to transfer when and where they want.

Lashing out over trade practices, Trump lobbed insults at his G-7 host, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Trump , a regular proponent of Fox News , had not responded to the error at the time of publishing.

Beyond this change, the Transfer Working Group is considering other transfer issues, including the processes surrounding postgraduate transfers.

According to the NCAA, the rule change is based in player-safety reasons. Or speedy Eric Stokes could have chipped in on special teams instead of being redshirted.

The new rule goes into effect for the upcoming season. He played in the opener. Players still have five years to complete four seasons of eligibility, but now they won't have to be sidelined for an entire season.

Over the past few months, CBS reported multiple other transfer proposals, including one that would force all student-athletes to sit out a year after transferring, and another that would lessen the mandated time out for students who meet a certain GPA threshold.

Could LSU coach Ed Orgeron apply that this season to his quarterback situation?

Previously, a player would be ineligible to redshirt if they played as little as one play in one game.

No longer will you be unable to see a player on your favorite college football team play in a game because he's redshirting. "But if we don't do that, why is it on me?" It may not be Game 1 but he may be better at the position in Game 4 than the guy in front of him.

One of the lone exceptions to the rule appears to keep a mid-year enrollee from participating in a bowl game that takes place before he has his first academic term at the school.
