Full Article:

Student athletes no longer have to ask for their release. Their name gets put in a national database within two business days of them informing their coach of wanting to transfer. The new rule takes effect October 15th. Personally think it's a good decision. Coaches will no longer have the thought to illegally recruit players before they can get their release.

I like it, but it would be better if the compliance officer/AD were charged with publishing instead of the coach. I can see some scumbucket coaches using this power as a vindictive one instead of assisting students.

The two fairly recent examples I can think of involved Phil Martelli and Bo Ryan.  One of Martelli's players wanted to transfer to UAB as I recall and Martelli was making it as difficult on him as possible, citing that he must take a graduate curriculum at UAB that is not offered at SJU (technically a rule).  Ryan's case involved Jarrod Uthoff who wanted to transfer to Iowa only to find Ryan cite every Big 10 and ACC school, Marquette, and Iowa State (Uthoff is from Iowa) as schools he would not allow Uthoff to play at.  To make matters worse, a few years earlier, Iowa allowed Ben Brust to break his LOI so that he could play for Ryan.

Everyone should truly like this rule because the players receive more freedom and the coaches don't end up looking like such pricks for holding their (former) players back.

Can't see DMV's first post, can always see DMV unless he starts a thread.  Anyone else experience this? I guess I'll stop asking since it never gets answered. I also can't see 50% of my own posts, anyone else experience that?
