Thread: Transfer Rules

  1. #1

    Default Transfer Rules

    What are the rules for transfers? I've basically only followed NC State wrestling, and there wasn't much reason to follow wrestling on a national level.

    I didn't realize all those VT kids transferred. Did they have to sit out a year?

    I found the ESPN article about the Iowa 5. I didn't realize Olympic athletes could transfer without sitting out a year if the school released them.

    I'm glad VT made these kids sit out a year for refusing to honor their commitment.

    Rumor has it VT agreed if Brands left they would release the wrestlers without penalty

    I just found the brands affidavit on the roanoke times website. From that it sounds like VT would allow Olympic athletes to leave, but didn't want to allow all their recruits to follow a coach if he left the program.

    I say good for VT. These kids sign with the school, not with the coach.

    Your right, but I bet most would say they pick the school because of the coach

    Once the coach starts paying their scholarship then, they'll have a reason to follow the coach. Until then, their loyalty should be to the school.

    You're right. I didn't realize what was behind the VT transfer until watching tonight.

    I'm in ACC country. We're lucky to get the wrestling schedule much less any news.

    If you read the replies on the espn article, you'll see how fresh the wounds still are for many of the fans of both schools.

    Keep coming on here and you'll get the skinny on pretty much everything in real time.
