    No. I believe it was setup to give the player the freedom to have schools contact them regarding interest without any interference/restrictions from their original school.

    Actually, the U hired Dan Enos, who was Bammer's QB coach to be their OC. Mike Locksley was the Tide OC , and is now the Head Coach at Maryland. Been seeing a lot of speculation about Hurts becoming a Terp.

    Yes but I believe the player can limit contact to the teams he wants to talk to though.

    MD was an option, but it sounds like Enos really wants to Hurts to follow him to Miami. It'd be mutually beneficial for both. I'm not sure Hurts is even that much better, if at all, than Kasim Hill who was a 4* prospect, and the #10 pro-style QB in his class (he will be a junior next year). Which sounds a bit ridiculous, but Hurts is that poor of a thrower. I think most Bama insiders are off the Hurts to MD wagon, and believe Enos takes him to Coral Gables to help establish his system, and incorporate a power run spread system.

    Drubuck What time is it?

    Good luck to the kid. I really don't care. Do what's best in your own self interest. Fight for the spot or start immediately somewhere else. Like many have said, too good to sit the bench and if he wants a shot at pro ball he needs to play. Hope the best for him and glad Nebraska doesn't have a shot at him.

    Not just QBs... Looks like a new era of CFB free agency. Go to a school based on getting a shot to start right away, then transfer if you get benched or told you have to wait.
    Kids seem more antsy than ever to do a one-and-gone. Why wait around riding pine if there's a D1 program who is willing to give you a shot to get on some NFL scout's radar?

    Makes sense to me. It's about time the players found some type of loop hole for power. If coaches can leave when they want, the kids should too. Its disgusting and embarrassing for a coach to take a job for less than month, and then leave when what he sees as a better option opens up. The adults are worse than the kids, and they're getting paid millions

    Well.....there's limits in the sense, you are only truly a FA if you've completed your undergraduate degree. Which I think is awesome. It's incentivizing the kids to complete their degrees in 3 years so they can transfer without penalty to a situation that helps them athletically. It's a win-win.

    All indications are Tate will graduate by April. I think that's awesome.

    Kendall Austin is also a graduate transfer should he choose to leave.

    Jalen Hurts graduated on time, but his degree allows him to pick a spot good for him.

    The new trasfer rule is awesome, IMO. It truly benefits the student athlete to get their shit done academically, sooner the's a great rule.

    Absolutely agree that this is a win-win and it definitely incentivizes the right things. It disincentivizes snake-oil salesmen recruiters by slowing down / counterbalancing the recruiting thing a bit because if a coach sells a kid a load of crap to get him to commit, the kid knows that as long as he can finish his degree, he can always transfer.

    It is about time these kids find some power while everybody else (and I mean EVERYBODY else) is making millions. It should be illegal. It's a wonder somebody hasn't brought a class action lawsuit. Better call Saul... :wink2:

  14. Count me in the camp that thinks transferring should be easier. My perfect system would allow all players one free, no questions asked, transfer. But in order to transfer any additional time, a waiver is required. And a waiver that is not easy to get (see: 2017 and earlier).

    It's really fun when you win.

    It really sucks when you lose.

    Because it's 100% on you.

    Also, this thread is ass, my dude.
