Great article by Bilas on colleges blocking transfers (link)


I know many on this board will disagree, but I think this is a fantastic take. As Bilas notes, it is incredibly hypocritical to think that coaches hopping from one school to another does not upset "competitive balance", but allowing players the same freedom of movement does. It's also telling that it's only the "revenue sports" that have transfer/eligibility rules at all. The current transfer rules, like so much about modern college athletics, are really all about one thing, and one thing only: making maximum $$$ for the schools and conferences.
