    btw that’s some BS... I’d wager 75 to 80% of kids would be kicked out of school if they enforced that underage crap

    Was set to be the starter at USC, then held out of the first game the day before the game. Sucky situation. It's hard to believe someone could get a 28 month suspension from school for that

    Sounds as though he didnt play a snap this year, which means he should be able to play anywhere he wants next year with this being his redshirt while he transfers...

    Transfer Process

    Academic year in residence: Under the basic transfer regulations, you must spend an academic year in residence at the school to which you are transferring. If you transfer from a four-year college to an NCAA school, you must complete one academic year in residence at the new school before you can play for or receive travel expenses from the new school, unless you qualify for a transfer exception or waiver. To satisfy an academic year in residence, you must be enrolled in and successfully complete a full-time program of studies for two-full semesters or three-full quarters. Summer school terms and part-time enrollment do not count toward fulfilling an academic year in residence.

    One-time transfer exception: If you transfer from a four-year school, you may be immediately eligible to compete at your new school if you meet ALL the following conditions:
    • You are transferring to a Division II or III school, or you are transferring to a Division I school in any sport other than baseball, men's or women's basketball, football (Football Bowl Subdivision) or men’s ice hockey. If you are transferring to a Division I school for any of the previously-listed sports, you may be eligible to compete immediately if you were not recruited by your original school and you have never received an athletics scholarship.
    • You are academically and athletically eligible at your previous four-year school.
    • You receive a transfer-release agreement from your previous four-year school.

    I don't know all the specifics but it seems like we have seen an ass ton of exceptions lately

    I think the NCAA will do whatever it takes to not get sued or have the twitter social justice mob loosed on them.

    I'm sure he can create some kind of victim angle to this.

    You have really really really got to act like an idiot at a party to get kicked off USC's team without doing something illegal (or any top team to be fair)

    Or they were looking for a reason, which is a terrible look for Bolden, especially at this point in the season.

    Will Ohio State go after USC safety Bubba Bolden?

    It’s a tricky situation.


    There’s been plenty of talk on this website, and on just about every Ohio State website this season on the struggles of Ohio State’s defense this year. Most of those complaints center around the linebacker play, and of course, the issues at safety, specifically at the free safety spot, because Jordan Fuller has been pretty solid at strong safety.
    Bolden, for those who don’t remember, was recruited pretty heavily by Ohio State in 2017, and was part of the Bishop Gorman group that Ohio State wanted to land (the Buckeyes landed Tate Martell and Haskell Garrett, but couldn’t hold on to Tyjon Lindsey, and missed out on Bolden). That original interest from Ohio State caused some conjecture online about the possibility of Ohio State as a landing spot for Bolden to finish the last few years of his career.

    While that is a possibility, I don’t know if Buckeye fans should bank on it as hard as they may be right now. Firstly, Bolden will almost certainly have to sit out a year at whatever he lands at, because he was entering his sophomore year this year, and transfer rules don’t allow underclassmen to play immediately, barring extraordinary situations. That means that Bolden wouldn’t be eligible until the 2020-21 season. Ohio State may not even need a safety at that point, because they have a lot of young talent at the position, that should be ready to go by then.

    Secondly, and more importantly, Ohio State going out and taking a player that had some Title IX related issues would be pretty heavily scrutinized, given what happened in Columbus this summer. Bolden is a good player, and would be able to contribute to Ohio State on the field, but with plenty of questions around what actually happened at USC, I’m just not sure Ohio State is willing to take that media hit. I guess we’ll see.
