Re: Transfer rule adjustment scary
Agree. Wait until Congress declares them Athlete/stuents which will make them employees of the school. Next step is to unionize and get a salary as an employee in addition to everything else. Coach Prime, a Colorado, set the stage buy kicking off the student athletes who weren't good enough for him and brought in 57 athlete/students. College athletics is BIG BUSINESS with way too much $$$ involved. At least there are still student/athletes below the Power 5/6 level.
Agreed. There is no longer such a thing as a Student/Athlete.
Amateur athletics is over in college sports and is nearly over in high school sports where recruiting and NIL has started to be a bigger problem.
So, hearing of new rule that, with the portal free for all, just keeps getting worse
• Before and still: can transfer in a whim... or wait till after season leaving coach inlerch
• New this year: if a program picks up a transfer, said transfer cannot be dismissed for any reason unless actually ejected from the university for non athletic reasons.
So add a transfer at your own risk as the can effectively retire on ride or revolt with no protection for the program.
S/athlete power is out of control.
Wait till they grow up and have to work in the real world.
