    Of course they’re cutting down on anything that might benefit Kentucky while not affecting dUKe, UNCheat and Kansass!

      I apologize for assuming this was about basketball, I forgot we’re a football school now.

      No we aren’t. No matter what the ‘football guys’ want to believe.

      I agree CatfaninCinci.. I really hope that we may someday become a school with a good football program.. But one season of success does not make us a football school… I know hopes are high for the upcoming football season and I think we will get 6 or more wins with our schedule but I have always heard that it is one thing to have success one season.. But to sustain that success is much harder.. We will have to score a lot more points this season than we did last season and I know people are high on Stoops now but it is the same guy who years before had bad clock management and no desire to play aggressive… But I hope I am just scared from all the previous times Kentucky football let me down

      Man you two are really dense.

    They are so ridiculous. It’s like none of them has ever once tried to put themselves into the “student athlete’s” shoes. Everything is about how to keep things complicated and unfair to these kids.

  3. ScoggDog

    Colleges can pull a scholarship at the end of any year – coaches can leave at any time – but the kids are expected to stay for the duration. Got it.

    Great job NCAA. You don’t look even the least bit tyrannical. Not even a little. Here’s hoping the NCAA implodes, and something else takes it place.

      Good perspective, SDog.

  4. ClutchCargo

    Any word on when the new rules would take effect? It wouldn’t be fair to implement this immediately for the ones who have transferred but have yet to receive the waiver. Which means it will go into effect immediately.

    The audacity of kids to try and be happy! And Peters, for shame! How dare he not expect to be penalized for trying to balance his career and being a father! [email protected] the NCAA and anybody who looks like the NCAA.

  6. Bluebloodtoo

    If they don’t see being an active father as a valid reason to transfer then there is something very wrong with this institution.


    I live in the USA and if I wanted to transfer to whatever school whenever it should happen. This is a free country and no organization should be allowed to tell someone where and where not someone can go to college. I bet if a student gets blocked by this and they want to push it. They could take this to the highest courts in the land and would win. No way an organization like NCAA Or even a school

      Proofreading, it’s important.

    Because it is the first time UK has gotten a a 4 star, true hardship waiver transfer in football…. They still hate us for integrating the SEC. I hope it doesnt hurt his chances of getting the waiver. He really did come here to be closer to his son/family.

    1. peaches76

      Hate us for integrating the SEC???? A bit dramatic. According to the article there will be a process for transfers, albeit stricter. So in Peters situation we may prevail yet…hopefully.

    I call them the Narcissistic Collegiate A$$holes Association for a reason.

    They suck.

    I think that if this does pass it shouldn’t count for people that are currently trying to transfer. If Justin Fields gets to play this year because he didn’t feel safe on UGA campus after being called a slur then Peters should get to play for moving closer to his son. Just because the system is flawed doesn’t mean you should punish someone who transferred for a legitimate hardship thinking that this would be an option.

  12. kentuckybackupplayer

    as long as they make it applicable to every student, employee and anyone under contract with a member institution i would consider supporting the policy.

    There are three certainties in life: death, taxes, and the NCAA doing the wrong thing.

    1. zoupman

      The NCAA sucks, but this transferring is getting out of hand.

    2. StillBP

      Getting out of hand how? A student shouldn’t be able to transfer to another school and play a sport for their new school? But the whole coaching staff can go wherever they want. How is an athlete having the same rights as a coach as far as where they want to live their life a bad thing?

    3. 4everUKblue

      BP is making too much sense again.
