NCAA changes redshirt rule eligibility

NCAA announces transfer, redshirt rule changes

Nicholas Clark, a recent graduate of and former football player at Coastal Carolina who represents the Division I Student-Athlete Advisory Committee on the Council, said the rule change promotes fairness and the well-being of college athletes.

In the case of sophomore quarterback Myles Brennan who played previous year as a true freshman, the answer is "yes".

The rule will be put into effect immediately.

The NCAA's Division I Council approved the new rule this week. This not only gives younger players on-field experience, but a chance to keep their eligibility.

"It worked out but to take the redshirt off would have penalized the young man", Stoops said". The current rules give a player some help from overly-involved and impatient parents who believe that if their kid is not starting they must transfer to a school where they will start.

We have already seen six players leave the program this past week alone, but due to new NCAA rules, players that look to transfer, no longer have to get permission from their school to contact other programs about potential landing spots. The NCAA says that part of the rule change was to relieve pressure from starters that feel obliged to play through injuries.

Players are not expected to retroactively qualify for redshirts under the new rule and the rule can not be used to allow mid-term enrollees to participate in bowl games. Applications for the rule to be applied to other Division I sports is now being looked at by the council. But for now, it's all football.

While it's unclear where most of the Class of 2018 stands in regard to early playing time, it stands to reason that down the stretch of this fall - as has been the case in the past - there will be players who can benefit from the four-game redshirt rule.

Certainly, coaches now have to be cognizant of roster management as they must keep track of how many games a redshirt has played. "We did save their redshirt".

The new rule would've been especially useful for United Kingdom during times late in a season when injuries stack up and the Cats have few options at specific positions like on special teams.

Now, players are allowed to participate in up to four games without losing their redshirt status. I think that anything beyond that to me would be awful.

This is an interesting, and I think mostly good, change. But now, a player could hypothetically play the entire month of September, sit out the rest of the season and play the following season without a lost year of eligibility.

The changes to the redshirt rule are more intriguing.

"I really wish we could have redshirted him", Stoops said of McWilson. For one thing, superstars aren't going to stick around for five years anyway. The problem herein lied in coaches preventing players to transfer to certain programs, like when Wisconsin coach Bo Ryan tried to block Jarrod Uthoff from moving onto any Big Ten schools.
