It's a great day for Division 1 college football players as the NCAA appears to be ready to change the ruling of transferring to another school. Players will no longer be required to sit out a season. The same holds true for basketball and hockey.
This has been a very archaic rule and a burden to players. It's easy to see why they often leave school a soon as they are eligible for the draft.
Players on losing programs want to maximize their opportunities and exposure. This will give them a better chance.
