    Fairly safe to assume virtually every ‘new’ program calls the ‘old’ program before accepting the transfer. Like a personal reference. I’d say the ‘old’ school’s coach can play a big role in looking for a ‘new’ school.

    Scholarships are guaranteed for five years if you sign a NLI. Here's a source: https://informedathlete.com/the-fact...-scholarships/

    I'm nearly certain the B1G had been doing it for a few years prior as others have said.

    That said, I'm not naive enough to think coaches don't have ways to "convince" players to leave. Though I am guessing a lot of it is the "son, you know you're never going to see the field, right?" Most kids have enough pride to want to get somewhere else, where they can compete.

    In the case of Nolan Edmonds, he medically retired and is staying at the U as a medical non-counter. He is not transferring. https://www.thedailygopher.com/2019/...ically-retires

    There is nothing wrong with being up front with the players that are buried deep in the depth chart. But, it has to be their decision to transfer or to stay. Some may be comfortable being bench or practice squad players who really love the U and want to stay and graduate.

    Is it legally the players decision?

    I'm not sure the player interviewed is correct about specialists "splitting" scholarships between fall and spring. I'm nearly certain both would count toward the 85 in that scenario. Then again, it is the SEC, so who knows if it happened regardless...

    Understood. However, I thought the debate was about if/if not scholarships get pulled and not about if/if not it can be done.

    We all agree NLI players can’t have their scholarships pulled - which is why we have discussed being “pushed out”.
