unfortunately, there isn't a person on earth who can answer this, including the ncaa itselfUnder what conditions are waivers granted, and does JD qualify?
Wow, so he needs 2 waivers? This will get expensive for his family, but he just might have the connections. What are the rules for?unfortunately, there isn't a person on earth who can answer this, including the ncaa itself
here's verbiage from the homepage:
Spielman has not graduated, and he also had an incomplete academic term for the spring semester of 2020. In order to play, he'll need a waiver to get immediate eligibility, since he's already used his redshirt in 2016. You also have to get a waiver from the NCAA if you don't complete an academic term.
hmm.. maybe check back with us with literally any proof of this claim.NCAA grants waivers every year for kid’s transferring to play close to home. With Covid a factor as well, he would get the waiver to play at Minnesota next season.
By the sounds of it, he hasn't wanted to be here since day one. The dude still performed. Its just weird that he made it this long and now with only 6 months left he would decide it isn't worth it anymore.Obviously hate to see him leave, but it is what it is. I'll be disappointed, but if he doesn't want to be here, it does no good having him here. I'll just have to focus my excitement on players that do want to be here.
Yeah I think the fact that it's a now-or-never situation makes FCS a possibility. It's not like he can transfer to a Power 5 school and then just wait to see if he plays his final year in 2020 or has to sit out a year. It's 2020 or bust, which would make waiting for a waiver pretty harrowing.I honestly see him taking a step down to a team like SDSU or NDSU. Those guys have some legit offenses too. Outside that, I’m just going to wait and see what happens.
I bet heavily if it was reversed, i.e. leaving Illinois to Georgia, and Georgia wanted him, his waiver would be approved! SEC controls the NCAA just like Wall Street Banks control the Fed and Treasury.hmm.. maybe check back with us with literally any proof of this claim.
meantime, here's some light reading on the topic:
this player decided to leave Georgia after the 2018 season and committed to Illinois, citing his grandparents’ declining health and his family’s inability to travel and watch him play, but saw his waiver denied.
that second story highlights an offensive lineman who transferred home to be with his mother who underwent brain surgery (!), and had his waiver promptly denied by the ncaa.
