« 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.

That would be a major improvement over the current setup.

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.

Why give players free school and housing?

Exactly, pay them and charge them room and board.

Why make them go to school at all? Just make them employees that play basketball.

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.

Why give anyone free school? I think k-12 should have to be paid individually as well.

All college should be free, as well as healthcare, housing, and Arby's

Fire departments.

Police departments.

Libraries.

Public schools.

Interstate highway system.

All of those (and many others we take for granted) are "free." All have value.

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.
