Ongoing discussion of B1G Transfer rules and status of Nebrasketball’s difficulty to ascend in conference next year

-Jake and Sip take more calls and texts on the big topic of the day regarding B1G Athletic Directors discussing their idea for a one-time transfer policy in Division 1 for all sports without needing to sit out a year.

-And, regarding Nebrasketball…can they really ascend quickly next year? The reasons for concern are that those “gimmie” wins of the past are now tough wins…there’s not really an easy win anywhere (Northwestern’s record is bad but they’ve played a lot of close games)

B1G ADs are in support of a one-time transfer exemption in all sports…is that the proper solution to current matters?

-Ohio State AD Gene Smith told ESPN that this was the hope of B1G athletic directors, and they’re hoping to raise the current moratorium on transfer discussion this spring, in order to have a vote at the 2021 NCAA Convention

-Is this the proper way to handle the transfer epidemic? If you want to transfer twice, you’ll have to sit out a season with the new program. If you transfer just once, you can play right away. What’s the perfect solution?

Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby remains adamant that all transfers—no exceptions—must sit out one year…is there a right or wrong choice?

-We have seen immediate eligibility come in to play often lately; looking at Justin Fields and Tate Martell mostly from this recent year to leave their schools to go elsewhere. Many would agree with Bowlsby on this, but some think it’s time to be ‘progressive’ and let players leave their schools to go elsewhere and be eligible immediately. Is there any way that will ever be the case, and should it?

-Jake seems to be behind the times on a lot of these new issues (see: redshirt 4-game rule) and is kind of on Bowlsby’s side here, just to avoid free agency in college sports. What about Parker?

Early Break: Mike Schaefer (247 Sports/Huskers Illustrated): Part 2

  • Nana Akenten (not surprisingly) announces he will transfer from Nebrasketball….addition by subtraction, or did you think he’d fit in with Hoiberg?
  • Does this team have to be bad next year? Will Matt Abdelmassih’s recruiting ability with transfers, couldn’t you see a bunch of good/decent grad transfers come in and play with Dachon Burke/Jervay Green/Amir Harris and create a pretty dang good squad in Year 1?
