Illini Football 2019

Can I ask on what basis folks think the NCAA would deny Ford's waiver request? Unless the rule has changed seems to be a pretty clear cut case: Transferring to a school within 100 miles of home to be near an ailing relative.

That said, it is very odd that these OSU QB transfer waivers (both in and out) were granted so quickly when neither case seems as clear cut, according to the letter of the rule, than Ford.

The fields transfer was clear cut with the racism experience and Georgia didn’t deny the claim.

Ohio state also did not deny the claim for the transfer to Miami so they made it easier.

Georgia has said that they would deny fords claim. My guess is that tHis is the holdup on the claim and the reason ford won’t receive a waiver

Just an FYI, Carterville is nearly 200 miles from Champaign. Regardless, at the moment it seems like the only criteria is does the other school object or not. Perhaps Luke hasn't even made the request yet if he's trying to get Georgia to cooperate.

That is not true re: Ford. Georgia promised they would not interfere with the transfer. I would expect he’ll get the waiver if that’s all it takes.

Because some waivers have to be denied?? Hopefully there are a lot of other cases lower down on the waiver ranking that can be denied.

Georgia May have threatened not to allow the transfer, but won’t follow through with the threat. Illinois isn’t competing with Georgia in almost anything and won’t for the foreseeable future. It may be in their best interests

That’s news to me (but I don’t know anyone connected to This recruitment). I thought they told him that he wouldn’t get the waiver if he transferred and would have to sit out a year.

If they don’t block it, I believe we will get it.

Don't know anyone, but I'm almost positive Jeremy Werner has tweeted this or reported it (free to view not premium).
 
Of the type required to adequately represent you in the niche of NCAA transfer? Doubtful. That isn't someone operating out the local strip mall.
You may be correct, I have no way of knowing. But I have heard the comment that the NCAA doesn’t want to get sued, so hiring an attorney greatly improves your chances of getting a wavier. Which makes sense since defending some of their decisions in court would not be easy.
 
the number of really good attorneys, that will take a case of a poor athlete being screwed over by the man , on a pro bono basis, is a mile long.

don't shed any tears
That list is far shorter for women's soccer than it is for football.

Further, it would likely be an improper benefit. An athlete can accept pro bono work from an attorney only if a) the attorney does similar pro bono work for non-athletes, and b) the athlete contacts the attorney. https://www.athleticscholarships.ne...unsel-rules-more-expansive-than-you-think.htm

You really think there are a lot of attorneys helping random students with their transfer papers? And you think poorer athletes have connections to those "really good attorneys"?

It is bullshit that having an attorney is even a factor in transferring. It is worse that it clearly will affect some athletes more than others.
