B1G Transfer Proposal

Post by jd of de » Sat Feb 01, 2020 9:46 am

A year ago the B1G transfer exemption proposal was tabled by the NCAA. At the just completed B1G meeting they will again propose and the lobby the NCAA to allow all athletes a one-time transfer exemption, allowing athletes to play immediately and not have to sit for a season. The NCAA has a long history of tabling proposals one year and accepting the same proposal the next year. The transfers sit a year rule only applies to football, MBB, WBB and MLAX .

Since they currently have more kids get exemptions than not it makes sense they’ll pass that and take the mystery out of it. Of course it’ll not be of any help for FCS schools.
Delaware Football - time to make things happen or it’s time for changes.....

While it may get worse for FCS to get transfers, clearly that has been the direction. However that raises the question how does JMU still manage to get quality transfers like DiNucci or Carter, etc. ? Yes, we got Will Knight, Lee, Robinson, Beh etc. who were all talented but have not had the impact that JMU's transfers have gotten. I can't remember the year the rules changed on transfers so did JMU just have good timing with regard to getting those transfers?

DiNucci had originally committed to Penn and received a last second offer from his #1 choice down the road Pitt. He never had a schollie offer or even interest from JMU to transfer , just a personal connection so he walked on and had to battle his way on the field by shining at PRACTICE !

Yes Henzone, practices are viable venue for talent to be “witnessed” by coaching staff, and a place for fans to “witness” and evaluate talent.

Okay, let me articulate my point a little better. Yes, I am well aware of Ben DiNucci college history. Point being he ended up at Pitt his first year and played in 10 games at Pitt, starting in 6 his 2nd year. He transferred at the end of his second year. At that point I would think he would have proved himself to be a pretty desirable transfer. Sophomore with starting experience at a P5 school. Would he have been desirable to another P5 school? Doubt it but he probably could have gone to a Mid American school or a desirable FCS program, which he did. I know that his background would not have anointed him at JMU, but he was a very desirable transfer QB in an increasingly competitive market for transfers. What made him choose JMU over other schools? That is the point of my post. Is there something we (UD) could be doing to make ourselves more desirable to a transfer like him. He is not the only high impact transfer that JMU got. This is not a shot at UD as much as asking is there something we should be doing that we are not? Perhaps the WAC will be a huge help. Another example is the Villanova transfer QB from Campbell. Is some kind of "out of the box" thinking needed here? How does UD approach this and do they really scrutinize potential transfers on the market well?

Well, winning would help. But beyond that I’d like to see UD get some qb interest in guys both big and with reasonable speed.

We haven’t had speed and size in that position in a long
Time. Speed yes, size yes. Both-No since Devlin.

Bobby - UD ran a campaign against taking transfers for years after firing KC for having too many transfers. We all know the story - mercenaries, unable to appreciate UD, root cause for bad team morale, etc. It was an ill advised and wrong headed campaign as we all lament the lack of quality players now. It is natural evolution and movement of players to create a competitive environment for a winning team. It looks like the coaches are starting to see the way to go here. (The will lose their jobs if they don't get the help).
