Title: Big 10 wants to change transfer rules
Post by: Pakuni on January 31, 2020, 10:46:19 PM
Under their  proposal, athletes in all sports would be allowed to transfer once without sitting out a year.

It helps all sorts of schools.  Players transfer up AND transfer down.

But that isn't really the point.  The players shouldn't be expected to have their freedom restricted for the sake of lower level schools.  We don't expect coaches to bear that responsibility by restricting their movement.  We don't expect athletic departments to share this responsibility by sharing conference revenue.  So why should expect that from players?

1..The NCAA setup already favors the rich and powerful schools.
2. A large majority of transfers involve kids either moving down a level or making a lateral move. Relatively few are kids going from a mid/low-major programs to a P6 school, and the ones that do are often grad transfers.

My sympathies, though. I imagine it's no fun watching the NCAA capitulate on these issues (transfers, NLI) for which you've carried their water for years.
You can commiserate with Mike DeCourcey, I suppose.

I believe TAMU provided some excellent facts and figures about the majority of transfers being kids who move down a level - something we've seen from Wojo's transfers. So, as others have pointed out, this actually would expand opportunities for the "non-rich."

Regardless ... freedom of movement, without onerous consequences, is generally a good thing.

Yep. It's a free market versus a cartel. Too many D1 schools anyway if they can't stand in there own.

Btw, how many big media contracts are there outside of the P6? Too bad for the rich and powerful that DTV has now decided to revenue share their conference sponsorships.

Of course, none of it really is free. You and I and millions of others help pay for them. We also use taxpayer money to give stadiums to billionaires, welfare to farmers, incentives to corporations, tax cuts to billionaires, etc, etc, etc.

Disparity in conference media and tournament payouts?  Cheeks:  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Coaching contracts that allow them to leave for "haves"?  Cheeks:  ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
Transfer rules that allow students to be immediately eligible?  Cheeks:  OUTRAGE!!!

Conference payouts are a product of the success of the conference.


What this rule change will do if enough conferences start to do it is wide open tampering, full free agency.  It is beyond stupid.  If you are any good at a program that is a step back, you are likely to lose players.  It makes rebuilding very difficult, and the major programs simply have to target who they want to pull up from other teams. 


Brutally bad.  Senseless.   And yeah, life isn’t always fair or comparable.

We get it.  You care so much about have and have nots that you go on endlessly about players.

Never the underlying cause of the disparity.

yep, not free... but I gladly pay my taxes to get them.  Having lived in countries which don't have these, I see the value.  Paying more, however, to get more stuff for "free"... no thanks.

If this passes transfers will increase, I see no way around that.  If it is already 40%, it will be higher still.  Probably a bad thing overall for the quality of play in college basketball (I think familiarity with your teammates is a big factor in quality) and I'd rather it not happen, but it is inevitable.  A consistent rule that says you always sit out a year or are always allowed to play immediately would be preferable the current state, where it seems to an outsider like me that the granting or denying of a waiver is rather haphazardly applied.

This is a practical, intelligent way to look at this issue.

You personally would rather it not happen for a variety of reasons, but you realize it very well might happen and that, in some ways, a consistent policy would be preferable to the status quo.

That's a lot better, IMHO, than the hair-on-fire reaction of some. There were similar reactions to many other big changes that, over time, proved to have not warranted all the WE ARE DOOMED angst they inspired at the time.

Boeheim admitted as much last year and said he would oppose it.

Mid-majors would become developmental leagues for the Power 5. Transfers up happen already with guys willing to sit (e.g. Rowsey, Curry), now imagine if they could move immediately, they wouldn't hesitate to do it and there would be a huge spike. A mid-major kid who puts up stats against a high-major team is going to be recruited in the handshake line.

Poaching by high-majors is a major issue in Men's Soccer with no year in residence requirement, basketball would be 100x worse.

I don't disagree with this, although I think I lean toward supporting this rule.

I'm curious about something, though, and your background might make you uniquely able to comment. Are some schools that are not well funded reluctant to take transfers that will have to sit out a year? I've seem some schools in non-revenue sports that are pretty aggressive in trying to move athletes through in four years to avoid the additional costs of that fifth year. Redshirt years cost the program money without corresponding production on the court. I don't know if that would ever be a concern in MBB. Is it possible that a rule like this would benefit smaller schools by allowing them more flexibility to take incoming transfers without having to give them an extra year? If you take a junior transfer, you only have to give them two years, not three. And could this also benefit athletes who are in over their heads at high-majors by giving them more potential landing spots in a transfer?

I am not doubting it will increase transfers of talented players to high major programs and harm mid major ones.  But I have two responses.

First, why is that on the players to ensure competitiveness of mid-majro programs?  We don't limit a coach's ability to move.  We don't try to share revenue in a more equitable manner.  Why do we bring up these issues ("have and have nots") only when we discuss players?

Second, collectively college basketball fans don't care about mid-majors.  We SAY we do, especially when schools like Loyola and Sister Whateverhernameis make for a nice story, but even in the NCAA tournament, the big boys draw the most eyeballs.  There are 80+ schools in the P6 conferences plus a handful of AAC, MVC and Gozaga type schools that can compete every year.  That's plenty.  If the other schools can't hack it, drop to D2.

I would have been fine with immediate transfer eligibility with a GPA requirement. 2.6 is needed to get a APR point back so as to not penalize the school (particularly important now with the Shared Revenue Distribution program that began this year). But, commentators like Bilas killed that.

It's rare for any MBB program to not want to take a transfer due to concerns over having to pay for a fifth year. However, the bigger issue would be eligibility. After two years it's difficult to be eligible immediately, especially if one is transferring into Business, since entering the fifth semester is when the percentage towards degree requirements kick in. Private and religious schools like MU are at a disadvantage with public school transfers meeting those standards because of the number of prerequisite classes they wouldn't have taken elsewhere (e.g., Theology and Philosophy). If MU's graduation requirement is 128 credits for someone enrolling as a freshman it could increase significantly for a transfer and cause them to not meet immediate eligibility requirements.

That is a terribly broad statement to say they don’t care.  I remember Xavier, Gonzaga, Creighton and others drawing very good crowds for their mid major programs.

What you eventually see with all the pilfering is schools dropping out of D1, which means less opportunities for minorities, women, etc. 

It is a horrific idea.

Now, as a cynic I believe a major conference will do it to bolster recruiting by saying you can leave whenever you want with no penalty.  Come on down.


Some people think players are soft now, you just wait until this process rule is put into place....the ENTITLEMENT it creates is off the charts.  Sorry kiddos, life ain’t easy all the time and you will find situations where the coach is mean, or your boss, or your colleagues.  Use it to grow yourself and learn to handle adversity, do not run away from it.

The idea that a bunch of programs are going to drop sports or drop to a lower division because of this is palpably stupid.
You're going to see just as many - and perhaps more, as is the case today - lateral and downward transfers as you do upward moves. The low- and mid-majors will thrive by being able to offer immediate playing time to kids stuck on the bench in the better conferences.

Frankly, this has the potential of hurting the power schools as much as helping. Plenty of 9th-10th guys at a school in the Big East or Pac 12 might be happy to leave for starters minutes at a smaller program if they don't have to sit out a year first. That's the real reason a guy like Boeheim is against it. It makes his job harder.
Conversely, P6 schools aren't going to be able to raid the smaller programs for their top players unless they can get those kids minutes. Kids starting in the Missouri Valley or Big West aren't transferring to a bigger school to play 10 minutes a night.
At the end of the day, players want to play.

But again, for all the talk of how much NCAA athletics benefits athletes, some of you can only frame this discussion in terms of how it affects the schools. How it affects the players isn't secondary for you. It's not even worthy of consideration.

In basketball all it takes is one or two guys to leave and you potentially crush their chances.  Sure you will have some ladder  up and down, it’s the degree of impact that matters.

A kid laddering down has much less impact to the school they leave than one laddering up.  It isn’t about quantity, it is about quality.

Bull----
With extremely rare exceptions - Steph Curry, Marcus Camby -  a single kid isn't going to drive a small program to major success. Northern Illinois and Stetson losing their best player to a transfer will become ... Northern Illinois and Stetson. Nothing changes.

The slippery slope chicken little stuff here is ridiculous. This changes the college basketball landscape little, if at all.
But it does give the players power, leverage and freedom of movement. And that's what really has some people scared.

Bull----
With extremely rare exceptions - Steph Curry, Marcus Camby -  a single kid isn't going to drive a small program to major success. Northern Illinois and Stetson losing their best player to a transfer will become ... Northern Illinois and Stetson. Nothing changes.

The slippery slope chicken little stuff here is ridiculous. This changes the college basketball landscape little, if at all.
But it does give the players power, leverage and freedom of movement. And that's what really has some people scared.

I’m not talking about major success, I’m talking regular success which you are now yanking out of those schools.  They took a chance on a kid with resources, investment, etc, help develop the kid and now he gets to walk away.  I’m all for it if he has to pay back the value of the scholarship.

Are you really saying there will be no more successful coaches at those levels?  There are numerous successful coaches at the D2 and D3 levels now.

Regardless, maybe Barry should think of this as an opportunity to recruit more transfers up from the low major level...or recruit those sitting on high major benches with the offer of more playing time.  He's been a decidedly mediocre coach who has all of three NIT bids in his 16 years as a coach in the Missiouri Valley.  One would think he would welcome a change like this, and try to be a leader and innovator.  Because he certainly isn't succeeding in the current system.

But my guess is that he will whine and act the victim instead.

I have always believed that the rule that makes no sense is not the sit out rule, but the 5 to play 4 rule.  Eliminate the 5 to play 4 rule and require every transfer to sit out a year.  This way nobody loses any eligibility even if they want to transfer every year. 

The sit out year prevents chaos every off season and also makes the kids transferring weigh the pros and cons of their decision which is a good life lesson.  But they shouldn't be penalized an entire year of eligibility if they change their mind on more than one occasion.  Even if someone transfers after every year they play, it will only take 7 years to exhaust their eligibility.  What's the big difference between 5 and 7.  Anyone that transfers 3 times and is still hanging around college at 25-26 probably isn't making that big of an impact anyway.

I believe this would be fair to the student athlete without turning every off season into a free for all.

Why should a kid have a penalty of sitting out a year in case they made the wrong decision at the age of 17? Why should a coach be able to bail a year after recruiting the player while the player has to determine if sitting out a year is worth improving their situation?

I just don't think it's that big of a sacrifice if it doesn't cost you any eligibility.  In fact if you play your cards right you can use it to your advantage.  College basketball is a competition.  And competitions have rules to maintain order that you need to obey if you want to participate in the competition.

In the current model kids are losing something.  A year of eligibility is precious when you only have 4.  This way they would not be losing anything.  I also don't think a rule that makes a young adult stop and think before rushing into a big decision is necessarily a bad thing.  But they shouldn't be punished because of that rule.  Just my opinion.  I think it would be better than an open recruiting season every off season.

Stop trying to use these kids for sports only! They are the children of this great country. Let them be educated.

Yeah, Cheeks had to dredge up a two-year-old quote.
But Fluffy is right ... Hinson's comments are all about protecting his interests and his job. And, of course, no mention of the ways this would benefit a program like SIU (like, maybe the 10th guy at Illinois or Indiana would like some playing time and immediately becomes a difference maker at a lower level).
As usual, what's best for the athlete is irrelevant to most coaches and administrators.

Curry also transferred the year after his big bro set the world on fire and was a lottery pick (which undoubtedly gave him visibility he otherwise wouldnt have had) and also may have realized that he didn't want to spend 4 years at an uber restrictive school like Liberty when he had options elsewhere.

No one is saying upward transfers don't happen.
There's just no reason to believe that mid- and low-major rosters are going to be picked clean of all their talent every year - even to the point they shut down their programs - as some here are arguing. Some programs will lose players some years. They'll also pick up players who are looking to move down a level for more minutes.

Also, SIU is "great"?  Pretty liberal use of the term for a team that is 140 in the NET and has a largely unremarkable season outside of sneaking past a really tough UNI team at home.  The MVC is pretty soft this year.  Looks more like the MAC than the WCC or MWC.  Even the SoCon is better this year.

Great in this case is relative.. but, yeah... I'm a huge Marcus Domask fan.. was trying to tell people he was the better prospect than Days years ago. Crazy, as a frosh he's already got 9 KenPom mvp's.

Not sure I care about the Net, but in KenPom Southern Illinois started off at ~220 and is now 157..they've won 5 in a row and stand at 7-3 in conference. Lots of solid MM teams in the MVC.

Dalton Banks is legit as well.. they've got some young guns getting nice minutes this season..

The Valley has been softer for awhile now. Losing Creighton and Wichita State will do that.  According to KenPom, they’re the 11th best conference.  They are ahead of the SoCon pretty comfortably in that particular matrix and just ahead of the MAC. KenPom has the Mountain West just ahead of them and the WCC 3 spots ahead.

From 2005-2009, they were the 7th best league in KenPom.  That was their high water mark.  They fell all the way down to 15 last year, so they are better this year.  They’ve been around 9-11 the last decade or so for the most part.  The days of the multi-bid Valley are probably over.  That has more to with realignment than transfers.

But my guess is that he will whine and act the victim instead.

I am happy to use other examples if you wish.  Hinson was an easy one from a few years ago.  I think you are still missing the overall point and Billy (who actually is at a mid major and does this for a living) knows more about this stuff than 99% of the people on this board.  The issue of tampering will absolutely EXPLODE....and please do not start with the tired trope that "it is already happening".  Not like this it won't.  Today it of course happens to some extent, but the player still has to sit out so there is a built in control against it.  If this nonsense is passed, there will be active free agency recruiting all the time.  Who wins?  The haves.  Who loses?  Everyone else. 

This notion by Pakuni about players going down....who cares.  Are the Dodgers suddenly hurting when a player is demoted to Triple A?  Uhm, no.  It's the upward bound players that provide the benefit and the teams they LEAVE that are harmed.  In a baseball example it doesn't matter because they are working in alignment with the big club.  That's not what is going to happen here.  Teams will have their guts ripped out by upper echelon teams, and they will then try to do the same to someone else to fill the void.   Horrible outcomes.

THIS IS SUCH TORTURED LOGIC.  First off, they didn't mine because the kid had to sit out a year.  The market opportunity wasn't there.  Not the case with grad transfers where this is happening more and more.  You think for a second an upper level school wouldn't want a chance to grab a stud player on a team that was in "rebuild" mode because kids were graduating ahead of him?  Etc?  Give me a damn break.

I am happy to use other examples if you wish.  Hinson was an easy one from a few years ago.  I think you are still missing the overall point and Billy (who actually is at a mid major and does this for a living) knows more about this stuff than 99% of the people on this board.  The issue of tampering will absolutely EXPLODE....and please do not start with the tired trope that "it is already happening".  Not like this it won't.  Today it of course happens to some extent, but the player still has to sit out so there is a built in control against it.  If this nonsense is passed, there will be active free agency recruiting all the time.  Who wins?  The haves.  Who loses?  Everyone else. 

This notion by Pakuni about players going down....who cares.  Are the Dodgers suddenly hurting when a player is demoted to Triple A?  Uhm, no.  It's the upward bound players that provide the benefit and the teams they LEAVE that are harmed.  In a baseball example it doesn't matter because they are working in alignment with the big club.  That's not what is going to happen here.  Teams will have their guts ripped out by upper echelon teams, and they will then try to do the same to someone else to fill the void.   Horrible outcomes.

JUST DUMB.   


I'm not missing anything.

I don't care about the fate of whiney mid-major programs.  Those who are innovative will find a way.  I don't really care about tampering.  Such is life.  I care more about the players ability to play where they want to play without sitting out.

You really want to be the person to call out someone who says they are going to change their behavior?

I believe there's a mea culpa post on this board from you

When that same person is PMing me about changing mine and he continues to do it.....you bet.  He can show by example, he cannot do it...is incapable.

THIS IS SUCH TORTURED LOGIC.  First off, they didn't mine because the kid had to sit out a year.  The market opportunity wasn't there.  Not the case with grad transfers where this is happening more and more.  You think for a second an upper level school wouldn't want a chance to grab a stud player on a team that was in "rebuild" mode because kids were graduating ahead of him?  Etc?  Give me a damn break. You are not comparing apples to apples because the rules aren't the same.

Not quite sure what this gibberish means ... but if you want to believe that top programs are really going to re-stock their rosters annually with kids from the MAC and Southland, enjoy that delusion. It certainly won't be the first time one of your predictions of doom has been woefully wrong.

By the way ... notice how one of the guys you frequently quote in your full-throated defenses of the status quo came out yesterday ranting about how badly college basketball needs to change the status quo?

I believe those in favor of this mostly care about the players having the freedom to go to their school of choice without sitting out a year. I wonder if more MU players would have transferred down a level if they didn’t have to sit a year. Maybe they didn’t want to stay in school more than 4 years, so thought being a role player was better than needing a 5th year.

Is a likely result that it benefits the high majors more than mid-majors? I’d say most likely. However, that’s not the motivation to do it. It’s more about letting students make the best choice for themselves without a need to sit out a year.

Yep. Personal freedom. Personal choice. Those used to be seen as good things. I guess they still are, but only when they fit each debater's chosen narrative.

Interesting article. But until I see a multi-year pattern, I am sticking with "sports are cyclical."

College basketball was great last season. This season, not. It might be great again next season or two years from now. Or not. We'll see.

Regardless of the subject, I've heard a few too many "such-and-such is doomed" angles to buy in until I see a lot more evidence.

Except I think Coach K wants to limit players movement more than they are now.  Thats how I read the article anyway.  He wants kids to stop leaving for the NBA.  I suspect he'd want something similar to baseball.  Come to college, ineligible for the draft for three years, or something like that.  Maybe 2.  THat would build up JC basketball, anyway.  Sad thing is, what's best for the players is not what's best for the coaches, the fans, etc.  I think unfortunately the correct answer to that issue is "so what?"

I had a very different reading.
He doesn't want kids to stop leaving for the NBA. He wants kids to stop leaving for places other than the NBA.
As he said here:
“I think the whole state of college basketball has been hurt by how many kids have tested the waters,” Krzyzewski said. “It’s not the one-and-dones. We’ve lost about 70 or 80 kids who weren’t even drafted.”

As some have said for some time - and Coach K is realizing - because of the way the NCAA runs it, college basketball is now a less attractive option for a lot of kids than not just the NBA (it'll always be less attractive than the NBA), but also Europe, China, Australia and even the G League.
Dozens of really good players leave college early every year now not because they're expecting NBA riches, but because earning a low six-figure salary in Europe or Australia, or even $40-50K in the G, is a better alternative than playing for nothing in college.
I'm sure some will say "That's fine, we want the kids who want to get an education." And that is fine if you're a hardcore fan willing to spend your time and money on a mediocre product.
But casual fans and those who want the sport to grow and thrive and be popular - like the people who rely on it for a living - want to see great players with whom they're familiar. And that's not going to happen with the current direction of the NCAA.

I think he is also saying that there should be a path back to college for those who are undrafted, or even allowing a player to go back to college even if they are drafted.  Back in the 90s, the NCAA allowed that.  The Bucks drafted Voshawn Lenard back in 1994, but he opted to go back to college.  The Bucks did not retain his rights, but perhaps the NBA could retain the rights and work with the player to continue at the college.

The ridiculousness of the amateurism rule prevents a lot of good ideas from coming forward.  What would have been the harm had a team chosen Markus in the second round last year, have him sign a contract with some compensation, but then had him go back to Marquette for a final season?

I'm not saying that's a perfect idea, but the NCAA is shooting itself in the foot.

Made all the more weird by the fact they allow drafted and undrafted players to return in other sports.

I think the top programs will restock from the next level....including P6 schools....then those schools from the next level and on and on.   It becomes a domino effect and injures the mids the most.

A guy I frequently quote about a crapshoot nature...yes.   Not about other things.  Duke is the ultimate have and they will ask for what benefits them most.  His primary complaints about the NCAA on this where they have no control.  If the nba wants one and done, nothing the ncaa can do about it.  That’s a nba issue.  Poor mike not getting his nba players anymore....good.  Let the pros go pro, let the college kids play in college.

I want to apologize to MU 82, I said 17 posts over a two week period. I was wrong.  It was 18.  I blacked out a few non-MU82, but left Billy in there as just another of many samples of evidence that he and I are not the same person for those idiotic enough to still believe that.
