NCAA passes 4-game redshirt rule; what it means for Syracuse football

"The membership showed today that it supports this significant change in transfer rules", said Justin Sell in a release, the chair of the Division I Transfer Working Group and South Dakota State AD.

Before, playing one snap of Division I football would have claimed a season of eligibility.

The first, beginning October 15 student-athletes will be able to transfer and receive a scholarship without asking their current school for permission across all sports.

As we've seen in recent weeks with the SEC voting to allow inter-conference graduate transfers, the Power Five conferences can implement their own nuances to a national rule.

The NCAA has passed a rule that allows college football players to play up to four games without burning their redshirt.

Previously a player would lose his redshirt status after taking the field for a single play.

Beyond this change, the Transfer Working Group is considering other transfer issues, including the processes surrounding postgraduate transfers.

The pilot has been transferred to a hospital and is in "serious condition", the US Air Force in Kadena said. The F-15C, assigned to the 44th Fighter Squadron of the 18th Wing, crashed at approximately 6:26 a.m.

Nicholas Clark, a former football player at Coastal Carolina and a member of a student representative on the council, said the change promotes fairness and the well-being of college athletes.

To address one specific concern, the Council specified that midyear enrollees can not use the exception to play a bowl game before their first academic term. "Redshirt football student-athletes are more likely to remain engaged with the team, and starters will be less likely to feel pressure to play through injuries", James said.

The NCAA is changing a rule that allows schools to block student-athletes from transferring to different programs. "Coaches will appreciate the additional flexibility and ability to give younger players an opportunity to participate in limited competition". As of now, schools can not cut off an athlete's financial aid based on intent to transfer at the end of a term - but the NCAA will vote on two different proposals that would allow institutions to end aid after an athlete's intent to transfer has been made clear.

In years past, if a player wanted to leave a school, the school, if it granted the player permission to contact other schools, could place restrictions on the school the player speaks to.

The old rule was meant to discourage other schools from tampering with student-athletes.

The Division I council adopted a proposal that prevent schools from blocking transfer requests from student-athletes. If he played in one more game, he would not have been eligible for a medical redshirt.
