    Wow. That’s fucking ridiculous. Just remove the outdated transfer rules entirely. Forcing these kids to put furthering their careers on hold for an entire year is detrimental to all parties BUT the NCAA.

    It’s the right thing but still hilarious how often the NCAA shows no backbone. Just stop with this charade.

    Remove the amateurism rules too. They only exist because some dickbag fifty years ago didn't want to have to compensate his players if they got hurt.

    Some past NCAA history on why SMU is the only school to have ever gotten the "death penality":

    How Eric Dickerson’s “Trans A&M” Changed College Football Forever

    [​IMG]

    To this day, only one NCAA Division I football program has ever received the death penalty. A few universities have come close, but none have faced the harshest penalty — which bans a team from competing for at least a year and heavily reduces scholarships — since Southern Methodist University‘s football team in 1987.

    The NCAA nearly brought that same hammer down on Alabama in 2002 for a pay-for-play recruiting scandal and Penn State football in 2012 for a child sex abuse scandal. Despite the severity of those cases, particularly in the Penn State case, the NCAA has been reluctant to impose the death penalty, opting instead to reduce scholarships, vacate wins, and hand out postseason bans and hefty fines.



    As the former University of Florida president John Lombardi perfectly put it, the death penalty is like a nuclear bomb: “The results were so catastrophic that now we’ll do anything to avoid dropping another one.” That’s why the death penalty itself received, well, the ultimate death penalty.

    That precedent can maybe be traced back to one single car: Eric Dickerson‘s “Trans A&M.”

    Before the running back was inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame in 1999, before he set the NFL single-season rushing record with the Los Angeles Rams in 1984, and before he compiled a legendary career at SMU that established the Mustangs as one of the elite programs in the country, he raised eyebrows when he began driving a gold Pontiac Trans-Am while still a blue-chip recruit at Sealy High School in Sealy, Texas.



    Legend has it that Dickerson began carting himself around in the automobile around the same time he committed to play in College Station for the Texas A&M Aggies in 1979, leaving many to question if Texas A&M recruiters had given him the car. When he suddenly chose SMU over schools like TAMU, Oklahoma and Texas, the muscle car disappeared. One myth claims an Aggie destroyed it in retaliation to his decision.

    Dickerson was one of the biggest names in that year’s recruiting class. Texans that were football fans at the time will tell you virtually every school in the Southwestern United States wanted him. One recruiter from the University of Texas even cried when he didn’t chose the Longhorns.

    Dickerson has denied that the car was a gift from any school. He claims in a Houston Chronicle article his grandmother gave it to him and that he sold it to a friend between his junior and senior years in high school, though it was later stolen.

    But in ESPN’s 30 for 30 Pony Excess, former SMU assistant Steve Endicott claimed TAMU made the down payment on the car and SMU officials helped him pay for it while at SMU.



    In that same ESPN special, Dickerson admitted that Texas A&M recruiters showed he and his grandmother a briefcase containing $50,000.

    Dickerson, of course, went to SMU and formed the Pony Express backfield alongside another blue-chip running back in Craig James. The duo helped the Mustangs win Southwest Conference titles in 1981 and 1982 and made them a legitimate national championship contender.
