    A proposal to require a graduate transfer to count against a team's scholarship total
    for two years in football and basketball has been voted down. NCAA rules require foot-
    ball and basketball players to sit out a season after transferring, but those who complete
    a degree are permitted to transfer and play immediately. The proposed change would
    have locked schools into a two-year scholarship commitment regardless of how much
    eligibility a grad transfer had remaining. Trying to figure out how that graduate space
    works will be a continued discussion.

    The NCAA also voted to allow walk-on athletes to transfer and be immediately eligible
    at a new school.

    The NCCA passed a new rule that will go into effect this fall semester, that allows players
    enrolled in summer school and are on scholarship to transfer and be immediately eligible
    at a new school if there head coach leaves before the first day of fall classes. Previously,
    players in that situation would have to sit out a season.

    Grad transfers...what do you think?
