    Every dude on scholarship at a school with a coaching chance now has a precedent. I'm a bit shocked they caved to public pressure and allowed that door to be opened, but here we are...

    I actually hope this leads to players being allowed to leave (without sitting a year) when the coach leaves. Now I don't think the player should be able to follow the coach without sitting a year but I do think the player should be able to transfer immediately.

    This was a very unusual situation where (1) Matta was not let go until after summer classes started (very unusual - usually a coach is let go pretty soon after the season) and (2) OSU told the NCAA that it had no problem with the player getting a waiver. OSU was actually very classy about it from what I have heard.

    So basically any time a coach leaves a school all those players have the green light to transfer elsewhere and be eligible immediately....Yikes, this is going to be chaos.

    Every case is different. It doesn't have to be a general ruling for everyone.

    Every case has to be treated the same or it's a recipe for disaster.

    The specifics of the cases may not be, but the basic rules that must be followed are. Or at least they were until now.
