Since Michigan gave him a waiver, that means he can play against us in the first game correct?
It is too bad things didn't work out well for him here. Best of luck to him, except when he is playing UofM.
Sorry if it has been covered elsewhere.
No, that's incorrect. He still needs to sit out a year.
Okay thanks, I wasn't sure if the waiver meant he didn't have to skip the first year at WMU. Thanks for clarifying it for me.
I gave you a point for answering.
No problem, that's what blogs are for. There are a few weird exceptions for extenuating circumstances (like transferring for grad school), otherwise a player must always sit out a year. And a transferring player is almost always granted a waiver.
Is that the reason Ryan Mundy was able to play at West virginia?
Mundy took advantage of the "I applied to grad school" transfer loophole, which has since been closed.
Jason Forcier tried to do that this year, I think his case is still in front of the NCAA.
I'm probably not the only one who will leave the feelings of vengeance to Justin Boren this November.
I think about 100,000 will feel similarly.
You can bet your life a couple of Michigan players are going to pull some dirty fouls on that bastard, and I will cheer them all the way for it.
I do believe that if he were to transfer to a D2 team he would not have to sit out a year. I think Periloux from LSU did that last year and played right away. As a matter of fact I think that was why he transferred to a D2 team.
it's any division other than FBS. you can go play right away at an FCS school too
Perrilloux is playing for Jacksonville State in FCS.
You don't have to sit out if you go to a D-2 team or, I think, a 1AA school (or whatever they call 1AA this month).
if you transfer to 1-AA school since it's still a D1 level albeit a lower classification than 1A.
Yeah, that's false. That's why a lot of guys transfer to FCS schools because they don't have to sit out a year. Perriloux is an example, same with Pat Devlin who just transferred to Delaware (much like Joe Flacco did a few years back).
that Western can now give him a scholarship. Weis tried to hold a scholarship 3 years ago, I can't remember the player but he was the QB that started the Michigan game, because he was mad that he left the team. Weis finally waived him after approving of the college that he wished to attend.
I think you are talking about Demetrius Jones. He went to Cincy in case anybody cares.
So they don't have to sit, That is why you see guys go to Delaware, Furman, etc so they can play right away. Even Tate's brother is doing it, same with the Penn State QB, and all the others down the line. They also have this thing called a play off.
Also Matt Gutierrez did it when he left Michigan.
