The SEC voted unanimously to reduce the amount of scholarships for football from 28 to 25. They have also closed the Jeremiah Masoli loophole by not accepted transfer students that have one year of eligibility left. Both of these new restrictions go into effect 10/1.
I really disagree with not allowing grad students to transfer and be eligible immediately. Anyone that gets their undergrad degree has earned the freedom to pursue a higher level of education and should not be punished for doing so by having to sit out a year or stay at a school that doesn't meet his needs/desires. If the student feels another school has a better grad program, the program should thank ihim for his services and wish him well in his future. This really is a sign that the SEC is putting their needs over those of their student athletes. In a conference that is so widely mocked for its scholastic shortcomings, you would think they would get on board with the few students that they can use as examples and keep them happy.
