    Not what it says.

    Only these 4 sports had the rule to begin with.

    @IU Hawks fan well the initial paragraphs only mentioned BB and FB. (Perhaps they edited the article?)

    I think this is good news for the major programs in these sports. Alabama sends basically its entire starting lineup to the NFL, Saban can just tell any 5 star

    "Come play with me and after 2 years you will either be playing a lot and poised for the NFL after junior year or if you don't see the field you can transfer after two years to Illinois or Oregon State and start and try and make the NFL that way"

    And if all the QB's they recruited were to suck, they can just poach some kid who fell through the cracks but became a star at Colorado.

    High school recruiting is going to mean so much less now.

    What was so funny was Saban coming out against this, citing classes. "You sit a guy out because he didn't go to class this week, and then next thing you know he is looking to transfer." So let it never be said coaches don't care about kids going to class. If it allows them to maintain their complete control of athletes' lives, then it's a good thing!!
