    No idea. If they can find a way around it, they will.

    Have to wait for the announcement. I could be wrong, but it could be longer than just a week.

    Unless they're spending a full semester enrolled in classes abroad, there is no way it should be considered "studying abroad." One week, two weeks, even a month, still just a vacation/field trip for the players.

    Adding 10th assistant might be pushed back to 2018

    From the proposed amendment:

    An April effective date is in the middle of the budget year for the membership and is late in the hiring period for a football staff. If the effective date is amended to occur to the conclusion of the 2017 football season, member institutions will have the opportunity to budget for the addition of a full-time countable coach and associated costs related to recruiting. In addition, a delayed effective date will better fit the hiring timeline for a football staff and will not require readjustments following the spring practice period.

    NCAA has a committee looking into proposals to change the transfer rules:

    NCAA considering changing transfer rules

    The NCAA’s Division I Council Transfer Working Group on Wednesday unleashed a set of suggestions that could either radically change or slightly tweak the way transfers are handled in college sports’ highest level.

    Let’s start with the (possible) radical changes. The working group is considering a suggestion that would make all transfers immediately eligible, provided they hit certain academic benchmarks:

    Establishing uniform transfer rules — which would require everyone to follow the same rules regardless of the sport they play — was a topic that the group agrees will likely take longer to resolve. While most members agreed the concept of uniformity would be positive, what the specific rules would be is less clear.

    Members discussed two models: One model would require every transfer student to sit out a year to acclimate to a new school; the other would allow all transfers to play immediately provided they present academic credentials that predict graduation at the new institution.

    Walking back from that, the working group did recommend changing the transfer process to where players seeking new destinations would no longer need their former school’s approval. Considering the NCAA formally argues its athletes are merely students, and there is no limit on normal students receiving financial aid upon transferring to a new institution, this change should pass without a word to the contrary. But, you know, the NCAA is the NCAA.

    Group members believe financial aid should not be tied to whether a school grants permission to contact. They want to know if others in the membership feel the same way. The group also agreed that enhancements should be made to the formal process students use to notify a school of their desire to transfer. The group will seek input from the membership on appropriate enhancements.
    Any changes proposed by the working group are merely suggestions. The earliest any proposals could be voted on would be April 2018.

    Entire article:

    Here's what I like:

    1) Schools can not block a student wishing to transfer to any other school. Any player can transfer to any other school; however, he/she does have to sit out a year.

    2) Graduate transfers do not have to sit out a year per above.

    3) Any player attending a school that goes on NCAA probation can transfer to any other school without having to sit out a year. However, this does not apply to a player(s) that was involved in the school getting on probation. This is in effect as long as the school is on probation.

    ACC proposes adjustment to archaic redshirt rule

    The AFCA has been stumping for such a rule change regarding the redshirt policies for over a year now, and it would seem there is enough momentum to see the proposal take the next step toward a formal change in the rulebook used by the NCAA. In essence, you would still have five years to play four seasons, but the ability to preserve a year for a player who may be injured early in the season or a young player getting a redshirt year burned by playing late in the year to fill in the depth chart would be a nice benefit to the player. The adjusted rule would also allow younger players the opportunity to play later in the season without wasting a redshirt year. Not only does that give players who have taken the bulk of the season to adjust to the college game and train with the program, but it also allows teams to fill roster spots in need of a boost in depth due to injuries during the course of the season.

    They actually said that with a straight face? :lol:

    I guess it flies better than "One model would require every transfer student to sit out a year to discourage such transfers, because lords hate when a serf has the freedom to just walk away."
