This transfer stuff is a joke. They need to give kids 4 yr contract scholarships. Just because you aren't good enough shouldn't give you the right to jump ship. If it is mutual then I am all for it

So a kid that really wants to play should be forced to sit behind someone else his entire career? Or if the kid gets there and things are not exactly the way they were presented during recruiting? If coaches can leave for better opportunities then so can the kids.

I'm sorry, that's nuts. Coaches can leave any time they want for any reason they want. Kids ought to be able to seek playing time.

Not to mention, this makes a scholarship available for a kid that really wants to be here, like a walkon that's been paying his dues. I've got not problem with it.

I concur, but.......

There should be a cap on how many kids a team can pull from the portal any given year. Otherwise, what is to keep a blue-blood program from poaching kids with the enticement of playing for a national brand? Scholarship limits will help, but what is keep a team from only filling a portion of their incoming roster with new recruits while they pillage other teams for premier players?

Why?

He isn't going to play, which is why he has chosen to leave. So the effect of that is it opens up another scholarship for the incoming class. Which may lead to an incoming scholarship athlete that will contribute to the team with playing time.

I like the rule. This isn't Cuba. Americans have choices. A pro career might be in the balance if a kid is allowed to play and excel at another school Imagine Bake Mayfield being a back-up quarterback for four years at Tech.

I can see this both ways. Was a time when playing for the university of your choice was the goal, the dream, and even if not good enough to start or play much, you were there, helping, and getting an education. On the other hand, there are a lot of kids who see the school as a vehicle simply for them to play and if it does not work out, they move on.

One or the other is not right. Different kids have different reasons for their choices.

There already is a limit, as all transfers now count toward the 25 a year total players added. Thus every transfer taken means one less spot for a high school recruit.

If we only recruited players who's life goal was to play for Oklahoma State - we couldn't field a team. If your on a roster with no chance of playing -- you are not doing that school any favors by staying either. You can only have 85 scholarships.

I wish Wudtee well. You can't blame a guy for leaving a place where he's never going to play.

The one rule change I would like to see is to eliminate waivers. Every player should have to sit out for a year regardless of their circumstances if they transfer before graduating. This would cut down on a lot of transfers.

I disagree with this. You might not play now, but maybe in the future. Regardless, every team needs scout squads and even if you do not see the field, you can help the team. Teams need depth, frequently more than 2-deep and that is where these kids can help a team.

I agree, but you are going to run into the "But the coach can leave whenever he wants" argument. Even a couple OSU players were recently quoted as complaining about it. Right or wrong, that argument will always be there.

So you think they should give up their scholarship AND stick around??

From Mark Cooper...

He signed with Oklahoma State in 2016, choosing the Cowboys over TCU on National Signing Day. Wudtee was considered to be a strong addition at the time after Oklahoma State’s original 2016 quarterback commit, Nick Starkel, flipped to Texas A&M.

If Wudtee ultimately decides to transfer, Oklahoma State will carry three scholarship quarterbacks into the spring: Brown, Sanders and true freshman Brendan Costello.

He would be the sixth scholarship player to transfer from OSU since the start of the season. The other five have all chosen their new schools:

WR Jalen McCleskey (Tulane)
S Thabo Mwaniki (Houston)
RB J.D. King (Georgia Southern)
QB John Kolar (Iowa State)
DT Darrion Daniels (Nebraska)

Was a time when professional contracts weren't so lucrative. The kid has worked his tail off through HS and to this point in time at college. He wants to see time on the field not the bench.

I don't blame them for transfering, we both might very well have done the same thing.

There has been an instance where a transfer went on to win a Heisman and one I recall later in his career won a Super Bowl or two.
