Those new ncaa “tweaks” shouldn’t really hurt somebody who has already been in the program since last season. I don’t know if that’s just speculative or what? I still think we will get him eligible only for second half but none of ya here know what his claim is.

Again I think people have misinterpreted the waiver. I think it is more about getting the year back then being eligible in November as opposed to mid December. Right now Steere is a true sophomore who can't play until mid December. If he gets the year back for only playing 5 minutes last year he is a redshirt freshman who starts playing in mid December.

And if you want the waiver so he can play in November why didn't they go for it earlier and see if the could get him immediately eligible second semester last year? Why even sit 1/2 year, 1 semester?

Here is an overview

NCAA Updates Transfer Guidelines

After a cycle of transfer portal craziness and high profile eligibility cases that drew the ire of some fan bases, the NCAA is looking to tighten up some of the requirements when it comes to transfer guidelines.

According to Dan Wolken of USA Today, the NCAA Division I council approved a package of updated guidelines that could make it more difficult for college football and basketball players who transfer to receive immediate eligibility via waivers.

What do you need to know?

- The NCAA is classifying the changes as "minor clarifications."

- Based on the new guidelines, paperwork will be more extensive for athletes seeking immediate eligibility

- The new guidelines are not rules but essentially a set of directions for the NCAA staff that makes initial waiver decisions.

Key changes...

- In cases where an athlete was run off by a coach or essentially had their scholarship pulled for non-disciplinary reasons, the NCAA will require a written statement from the athletics director at the previous school stating whether the athlete would not have had an opportunity to return to the team and why the athlete is transferring.

- Waivers should be granted for documented cases where the athlete was a victim of “physical assault or abuse, sexually inappropriate behavior, racial abuse, religious discrimination, questioning of sexuality by a staff member or student at the previous institution.”

- In cases where athletes transfer within 100-mile radius of their to home due to injury or illness to an immediate family member or because of a pregnancy, the NCAA’s proposal requires more paperwork from both schools, including “a treatment plan detailing the student-athlete’s caregiving responsibilities.”

More waiver requests than ever...

Overall requests across all sports increased to more than 250 in 2018-19 from more than 150 the previous year, according to AP.

How about they just grant each school one, no questions asked waiver every 2 or 3 years, no other exceptions, and call it a day?

General consensus on Steere has been to expect him second half of the year, to the contrary of last year where most expected Heron to be eligible immediately. Have to assume he won't be here until BE play.

Changes seem reasonable.

The only caveat is requesting schools detail the student-athlete's "care-giving responsibilities" when transferring closer to an immediate family member who is ill. In some cases these could be 19 year old kids just wanting to be able to visit a terminally ill parent. Not sure they should mandate "care-giving responsibilities".
