    We had a discussion on our forum regarding the transfer of the Boren kid from Michigan to Ohio State. He is a sophomore. By Big Ten rules, he does not qualify for a scholarship from tOSU, even though he will sit out next year and then have two years of eligibility left. In the Big Ten, if you leave after you are enrolled and are on athletic scholarship, you cannot get a scholarship from any other Big Ten school.

    If you scroll to page 3 on the attached website, it lists the transfer rule by conference, which vary from the NCAA rules of sitting out one year.

    Although there are conferences with similar rules, it appears the SEC just follows NCAA guidelines. Has there been any significant transfers within the SEC over the years?
    I'm trying to build a case why the Big Ten rules may be a tad outdated.

    Rick Claussen was a QB at LSU, he transferred to Tennessee just a few years ago, like 2004. Seems he got a scholly, and he played for the Vols the next season. In fact, he QB'd their rally against US in the second half of our 2005 loss to Tennessee.

    So, yeh, the rules are different in the SEC.

    The Pac10 used to make it a 2 year sitting out period but obviously that's changed to just one year. There have been a few recent incidents of players wanting to transfer within conference and coaches filing an objection for specific schools. To my knowledge none of the xfers were ever denied.

    I don't know. Seems like free market rules should apply. If a kid can get a better deal, why shouldn't he move? If we want them to stay, it should be part of the contract of the schollie.

    Talk about, I remember Miles draining a water bottle in one gulp without a breath. What an inauspicious Tiger Stadium debut.
