    One size doesn't fit all. One athlete may transfer bc of playing time. One athlete may transfer bc of a family health problem. The latter shouldn't be "punished" in my opinion.
    I totally agree with this, but you may likely see an increase in the number of family health related issues from those players transferring.

    agree with WMACK with these caveats... if a kid wants to transfer, so be it. Let them. I just don't like that they can play immediately. I think REGARDLESS OF THE REASON OF THE TRANSFER (unless you have a degree in hand already) that you should have to sit 1 year. That's tough but that's life. If this were implemented, then there's no inequality and randomness like there is now (no appeals process would be necessary, no judgement required, etc.) Just 1 year sitting if you transfer but you don't lose any years of eligibility for that. Also, make it that you have 6 years to play 4 and eliminate the medical redshirt nonsense.

    Consequences may make some of these kids who are never happy and jump around multiple times rethink their hopscotching!

    Yep, completely agree. Sitting out a year is "punishment" enough. To then take away a year of eligibility is just over kill. Or, give the players an option. Sit out a year and keep full eligibility, or choose to play immediately and lose a year of eligibility. You know kids these days are all about options and choices. LOL!

    The player can still use a redshirt for the sit-year. If Justin Fields was forced to sit a year, he would have redshirted and still had 3 years of eligibility after that.
