I posted this in the Football thread but they mention basketball at the end. Did anyone else see this

What's new: The NCAA Division I Council approved legislation to limit waivers for second-time transfer players. Now, any undergraduates who transfer a second time, or any other time after that, must meet specific guidelines in order to be eligible for immediate playing time starting with the 2023-24 season or risk sitting out a year between transfers.

“Meet Specific Guidelines”🤔
Must be transferring to a Power 5 school?

Mental health issues, like it would really help my mental health to play for <school name> . . .
Frankly, you're much more right than wrong Birdie (shaking my head). But that same reasoning is why my emotional support alligator is able to fly commercial with me.

I think the "mental health" exception is too vague and something any player could say without being questioned by the NCAA. Mental Health is a serious issue and the NCAA has the right intent, but.... Technically If a player transfers to a school they like better or make more money, isn't that going to make their mental health better than where they were before?

Or conversely, it can very easily be argued that remaining at a school they don't want to be at is detrimental to their mental health.

You guys are catching on . . . by listing vague exceptions, they’ve given everyone the playbook for getting a waiver.
