YSU Penguin Athletics / Re: Transfer Portal
« on: March 28, 2023, 10:22:10 AM »
It looks like one can enter the transfer portal if one has graduated from a 4 year institution and is going to another institution as a graduate student (and can obtain eligibility right away).

All others will require some type of waivers from NCAA.

The following article gives some additional information on the subject:

What are the NCAA Basketball transfer rules? A guide into the portal process
by Tristan Freeman 1 month ago Follow @hoopsnut351

The transfer portal has become more important than ever in NCAA Basketball. Here’s a look at how the process works and when to focus on it.

One of the most decisive topics in NCAA Basketball has been the transfer portal and whether or not it’s good for the game. But one thing is clear, it’s here to stay. Last season, around 1,500 players transferred at the D-I level alone, which is around four a team.

The rules have been all over the place from the NCAA, with many players transferring more than once, with most finding a way to get a waiver for various reasons that include being “ran off” from the previous school and not having a scholarship available, a coaching change, personal reasons and etc.

It’s been viewed as the “wild wild west” by pundits, coaches, and others, with calls being made to reign things in. And the NCAA, through various committees and boards, has come up with various changes to try and simplify the process for all.

New 60-day window

There’s a “window” for the time for players to officially enter the NCAA Basketball transfer portal for the different sports seasons, with winter athletes (basketball), having 60 days to enter after the conclusion of the regular-season/conference tournaments. So for the men and women, the deadline would be May 11th. Anyone who enters during this period will be able to become immediately eligible if it’s their first time transferring. Anyone who enters afterward will have to apply for a waiver, something that isn’t guaranteed by the NCAA. Grad students are exempt from this rule so veterans can move at any time.

Tougher requirements for multiple transfers

The NCAA has been trying to get out of the waiver business and has made it clear that anyone can transfer one-time without issue, as long as they’re academically eligible of course. But if they move a second time and aren’t a grad transfer candidate, they’ll have to get a waiver, which is going to have stricter requirements. Coach changing and personal reasons are likely to remain options but as the NCAA showed with West Virginia transfer Jose Perez, they’ll deny a player to get eligible if it’s not done in the offseason.

The NCAA has offered graduate transfers for many years now. Think of it as a reward for doing what you are actually supposed to do in college .. go to school.

I am sure the MAC wouldn't willingly go down to FCS. My vision is a new structure to college football. I doubt Charlie Baker has the imagination for something radical though. Anyway----there is a level of college football that is really semi-pro football. The interest level and attendance is similar to the NFL. A good number of the student athletes are not serious students. There are currently ~130 FBS programs and ~125 FCS programs. I would suggest a three division format instead.

Division A-----This would be the top 64 programs in college football that are playing in your tradition Power 5 level of football. Split the league into 8 regions with 8 teams per region or something to that effect.

Division B----This would be the next 100 or so programs. This would include your traditional crappy lower level FBS teams (e.g. the MAC) and your upper-to-middle tier FCS teams.

Division C----This would be all the rest. Your low level FCS team and your non-scholly programs.

There would be a playoff at each level for the champion. You could have a relegation/move up system for programs that regularly excel or stink at each level.

In some ways, this system already exists. the top-top version of college football is what really captures the national let's call it what it is. By having regional conferences at the top level, this can limit this silly conference hoping that happens. The TV money for this top tier should be nuts. This would do away with this silliness of barely noticeable football programs jumping to FBS to be non-competitive or play in a bowl game no one cares about. I also think this allows for better competition by placing the sacrificial lambs together at different levels.

I suspect Charlie Baker will continue on with this amateurism farce though with big time college sports. I would just appreciate a return to some regional rivalries and some acknowledgement that there is a huge gap between the top of FBS football and the middle, let alone the bottom. Let's reduce some of the incentives for schools to throw good money after bad pretending they can compete in something they have no business competing in.   

Sorry, but you have to use the term "Division I" IN THE NAME. Heck they never should have allowed the change from 'I-AA'. Do you ever hear any announcer using the phrase "Division I FCS"? NOPE!

Mutual Ohio paid for all the students-which much have not counted toward attendance. And if the go by tickets scanned who knows. My ticket is rarely scanned and I could have literally walked in for free.

If attendance ever grows, I think you will see changes. That packed TV game did wonders for YSU. I think the announcers mentioned the crowd 4 or 5 times.

I think Jim Calhoun would challenge where UConn's basketball prowess originated from.

let him. Then you can see 13 NCAA WBB trophies. no one else is even close. Especially when you consider how much shorter the women have played , Look at OSU. Football school, incredible WBB program and an adequate MBB program. Women outsell the men many times in a given season. Yes I do understand that it is easier to do that when you hail from a conference that is going to go 6-9 deep. It makes no sense to complicate matters because a kid thinks he screwed up and wants a "redo". It should be illegal to talk with any player once they have committed. Now if a player wants to play a year without a scholarship. Then we can talk. That will never happen.

Look if we were not previously competitive without the the portal, just what makes you think we will be anymore competitive WITH the the portal going forward? It is not like we are the only team that makes use of it. If it was Calhoun (not the portal), then he should be just as successful without the portal. Portal is terrible.

So you guys want to convert DI to to I-AA in non-football sports? Because that is exactly what the portal is doing. That and forcing higher salaries.

IAA-Fan what are you crazy? Support WBB more than MBB.  Simply NUTS.  I support any team at YSU and possibly you should too.  We can do both Basketball and Football success.  It can be done.  It's not a choice.

I too support all YSU sports. However, if we had good WBB team, our MBB can feed off it. Look at Uconn, or closer to home .. MO State or UWGB. This pattern is what we should have been following since the days of DiGregorio. We would have more consistency

Much, much easier to have success in Basketball than Football. YSU football program is dying and there is little interest so let's ride the success and excitement that Calhoun and staff have brought this year.

Not so. We ere into it, then we left early and interest tumbled back down. Don't blame fans for the teams performance. That will always be the case. FYI, this is a football town ... always will be. As I have stated before, I will  drop MBB in a second if it means a better FB program. WBB is where we need to focus.

Portal is terrible. Why do  think so many schools, that barely have business being the the NCAA tourney, are upsetting good teams?

Change the two dollar signs to letter 's' and it will work. I do not see a rival in the Horizon personally, but certainly I would choose the closer schools ... Cleveland, Moon Township, etc. The only rivals we ever had were in football (we even had trophies) but that is all done now.

It was the last thing coach said on the radio interview. He could have meant nice working with you THIS SEASON, but I don't know.

Could not be more right. I could care less about men's basketball. Give the women everything they want, that is an obtainable sport.
