Agreed on compensation. Personally I just have a hard time making a kid sit a year when he transfers when coaches can leave at any time without any penalty
Well, I do believe coaches(and programs) should be held to a similar standard. But this is comparing apples to oranges. Why should Nate Oats be penalized for accepting a better job? So, in that case, any kid who committed to Nate Oats should be able to leave without penalty. Or if a school gets a tournament ban for activity prior to the kid signing his letter. But it still should have nothing to do with whether they graduated or not. Letting kids transfer with no recourse will be pure chaos. If so, whats stopping John Calipari from recruiting("paying") a top player from the Big East, AAC, or Pac12 when he missses on a 5 star to Duke? The trickle down effect will crush the sport.Surely the coaches should also have to live with the decisions they made or sit out a year as well?
I am all for player rights. However, hypothetically, I am fairly certain people on this boad starting with the two of you would be livid if a healthy AG decided to transfer to Kentucky because the starting PG declared for the draft.
