Saw this on the Longhorns Fan Forum. Curious as to whether she's entering the portal or if there is something else behind this.

It's just the culture we are in now. The NCAA has helped open the flood gate by a strange series of waivers followed by a one year immediately eligibility for all transfers followed by a one time free transfer rule. Clearly I don't like it but that genie is out of the bottle.

The transfers are not the surprise for me . It’s the timing. What does an upperclassmen know in August that she didn’t know in April-July? And it’s enough that they are willing to sit out a year for it? (when if they had transferred just a few weeks earlier they would’ve been eligible immediately)

Do we know of anyone who has actually tested the new rules waiver process? My guess is the NCAA is going to an "all requested waivers approved mode" where they treat everyone like they did ND. :D

I still say it's the culture. The expectation now is everyone will get a waiver for any reason they wish as long as it's applied for by the school and I suspect the NCAA will buckle again.

This was not done to help the student athletes, it was done to help coaches and programs. No student should be forced to stay in a situation that isn't for them but the only thing transfers couldn't do was play in games. They could practice, get a scholarship, get all the benefits of being on a team but could not play in games which they received a year of eligibility back for later. That doesn't seem like such a bad deal to me.

Sorry I'm just fussing and grousing like the old guy I am.
