NCAA eases rules on athlete transfers

According to the ACC's proposal: "The current rule often places coaches in a hard position to decide whether to play a student-athlete in a limited amount of competition or to preserve the student-athlete's season of eligibility". Previously, that rule allowed players to obtain a medical redshirt if they played in four games or less than 30 percent of their games that season.

Not surprisingly, Oklahoma will get just one season's worth of Kyler Murray as their (projected) starting quarterback.

If a student enrolls midyear and plays in a postseason football game before or during their first term, the new rule does not apply.

"I think this new rule will be a great opportunity for a student-athlete and their overall college experience", Mendenhall said in a statement provided by a spokesman.

Per NCAA.org's Michelle Brutlag Hosick, the Division I Council approved a new "notification-of-transfer " rule that requires schools to enter a student who wishes to transfer into the national transfer database.

"This change promotes not only fairness for college athletes, but also their health and well-being", Blake said.

While Frost is hesitant to open up transfer rules entirely, he had stated a couple times that he's in favor of athletes having a few more rights when it comes to choosing the right school.

Like other Power Five conferences, the ACC has extra restrictions on athletes who transfer within the conference. "Coaches will appreciate the additional flexibility and ability to give younger players an opportunity to participate in limited competition".

Immediately, the conversation turned to who might replace Lopetegui for the World Cup . The national team is the most important we have, the World Cup is the biggest of all.

The transfer rule will generate the most buzz, though.

Under the new ruling, a true freshman could come in and play up to four games at any point during the season and still have four full seasons of eligibility remaining.

That's one way the model could work, but there is no limitation, meaning that a player could be used in game one, then game eight, and then the Big Ten title game, and then the College Football Playoff and still count the year as a redshirt. If he played in one more game, he would not have been eligible for a medical redshirt.

"Now you're getting to midseason or close to the end and you're making a run to get into a bowl game or what have you", Moos said, "and you have some injuries and such and that player (who redshirts) is ready, because he's had a couple months of scrimmage, he's been in the weight room and he's acclimated".

"This creates a safe place for student-athletes to have a conversation with their coaches and makes the whole process more transparent", Nicholas Clark said.
