It’s way overdue but at least a good first step.      Many of the “hardship” transfers never mentioned any sick relative – even to their closest friends – until they decided to transfer.   Then all of a sudden a “sick” grandmother pops up.    And in a number of cases, a prospective  transfer has looked at possibly transferring to schools a thousand miles away from home and then suddenly applied for the waiver when he ultimately decided to transfer to a local college.

One interesting waiver given recently was to American’s Austin Carroll.   Carroll transferred from Rutgers to American – a school further from his Massachusetts home than Rutgers.    He didn’t leave due to any coaching change or due to any Rutgers’ probation.   Yet the NCAA waived the sit-out year.    No idea why.
