A great article by a CBS writer who is talking about the ability for student athletes to transfer schools with eligibility. My take is transferring schools with NCAA eligibility and playing for another school goes against what the NCAA was setup for. The parity that is in place gives all schools a chance. Obviously some schools will attract the better athletes but at least kids can't jump schools.
Now if the athlete were allowed to move around, schools would become similar to a "professional" organization and most definitely the smaller schools would suffer. Who cares? We all do as a school in the North West would become not as competitive as say a school in the south west. If we were to allow these kids to move around, then open it up and get rid of the BCS. (i.e Boise State)
The article is worth reading:
Let me add a line about how many kids missed out on National Televsion exposure due to Alabama getting into a bowl game they shouldn't have. Additionally, who cares if they won, LSU should now get a chance to see who is the two out of three winner. The whole BCS thing stinks, sorry about that OK St.
