    However, Conferences and still add restrictions such as no inter-conference transfers.

    This will further accelerate the transfer numbers but I don't see this as very beneficial for non P5 programs. Anyone wanting to transfer goes into a database within two days of notifying school. Coaches will be stumbling over each other for anyone talented. This is really going to hurt the lower tier programs and I doubt if any of the major conferences had any objections.

    I don't think so. Asking the school for permission was just a formality any way. If they stopped making transfers sit out a year then that would have the impact that you are describing.

    Yeah I don't see it hurting Non P5's any more or less than kids transferring now does. If coaches leave/get fired.... you will still have kids transferring/de-committing. If a player goes somewhere and doesn't get a lot of playing time... now they can transfer without having to "get permission to be released"

    Just think.... under these new rules.... the whole Buckingham fiasco, and all the rumors surrounding it... may never have happened. It would just be.... ok Buck opted out and is now free to go wherever he feels..... obviously with a few restrictions (mostly pertaining to conference schools.

    Just curious, what does a school gain from making an athlete stay that does not want to be there?

    Good question... especially since all you gotta do is put restrictions on which schools he can't go to... so that he can't come back and light your team up for 30 (unless of course you somehow face him in the NCAAs, NIT... etc).

    I think this is an important point. Conferences can set their own, more restrictive rules. I may be in the minority but I think kids should go wherever they want if they aren't being paid.

    So the one thing that is not clear is this. Does this change a schools ability to block certain schools. Yes a conference can make rules like in the A10 if you go from one school to the another A10 school you have to it two years. No where does it confirm or deny that specific schools could be blocked. Previously you could say you have permission to talk to these schools and not these schools. Curious just to know that piece one way or the other

    The rule change ends the controversial practice in which some coaches or administrators would prevent students from having contact with specific schools. Conferences, however, still can make rules that are more restrictive than the national rule.

    So any of our former players that wanted to go to JMU should have waited one more year....:lol:. Seriously, thanks for providing that link. I was never a fan of blocking schools.
