Huuuuuuuump Daaaaaay! Gosh it’s good that the week is already halfway done. Love those holiday weeks.

Check the first story below, where apparently the NCAA may completely overhaul the transfer policy, and allow players to transfer and be eligible immediately to play. You would only sit out a year if you fail to meet the minimum GPA (lol), or if you have already transferred before.

I think I’m in favor of this because I’m pretty much in favor of anything that benefits the players, but as several people have already pointed out, this is going to just crush the mid-majors, and the low-majors below them. They’ll become a feeder system, a minor-league if you will.

A rule change like this would just create a larger pool of players for Villanova to recruit from. While Villanova has players transfer out every now and again, Jay and staff have done a great job of fostering a culture that keeps just about everybody happy.

And now, the “news.”
