    Another concern answered: "the Council adopted noncontroversial legislation to specify that midyear enrollees who participate in postseason football competition that occurs before or during the student-athlete’s first term at a school cannot use the exception." I guess that means if you bring in a transfer in December for the championship game, he has to burn the whole year.

    I like the new red shirt and transfer rules
    Opportunity is unattainable for most people because it is disguised as hard work!!

    I’m almost stunned the NCAA did something this smart.

    This rule makes drop down FBS transfers worth even less now. Why fool around with a player that will only give you a couple years when you can recruit a talented kid out of high school and now get 4 years plus 4 extra games out of him?

    Just go to 5 years of eligibility already and be done with it. Or better yet, for the P5, just give up the guise of them being students and just call them what they are, the minor leagues.

    I read somewhere earlier that the cutoff is Week 11. I would also assume that there won't be extensions.

    This really good for the QB position.

    What a difference this would have made with several past Furman players.
    We seemed to have so many players year after year that just played a tad over the limit.

    Big news.

    While still a good change I'd be a bit disappointed if this week 11 cutoff was the case. If a team gets decimated at a particular position in the playoffs it sure would be nice to have a true freshman or two they could utilize for some depth without having to burn a redshirt. Like I said earlier it would also make the coaches think a little harder about whether to use those 4 redshirt games early in the season or "saving them".

    Re: NCAA Redshirt Rules amended to allow players 4 games a season.

    Other questions/comments I have.

    1) will teams be allowed to travel with more players to road games if they want to potentially use more of their roster? I'm sure athletic directors don't like the idea of an ever increasing travel bill though.
    2) this has to help all programs with retaining potential transfer student athletes. The top reason they cite for leaving a team is they're upset they're not getting enough playing time and it can be tough for a freshman who was just a super star in HS to suddenly just stand and watch other players out there for an entire season when they get to college. Playing four games can help them feel more invested in a program, I would imagine.
