Based purely upon the numbers, I don't think there is much doubt the waiver system is a wreck that can't be fixed.  
After this coming season the NCAA is apparently going to adopt the one-time transfer/free-agency rule anyway, so why not do it now?

There is also a lot of talk right now about granting all the winter sport athletes another year of eligibility to align with the fall sports athletes in that respect.

I'm personally not in favor of allowing another year of eligibility unless the season is cut by more than half.  Having all the student-athletes hang around another year is going to have a big effect on the the high school seniors and JUCO athletes who may not have a place to go if smaller schools like UP cannot absorb the cost of both returning and new student-athletes, regardless of how many scholarships the NCAA allows.

Apparently the NCAA D1 Oversight Committee will vote on granting winter sport athletes an extra year sometime next week.

I'm hearing Zac Triplett is a SHOOTER!!  

I'm told a couple of ABL teams tried to convince him to stay in Australia and play professionally.

I know, I know, that's what Aussie Baller has been telling us, but in this crazy year he could actually break into the starting lineup based upon his offensive capabilities...although I'm taking a wait-and-see attitude.  Smile

And he'll have five full years to break UP's three-point record which I assume is held by Jared Stohl!

2020 Recruiting - Page 12 Screen46
In other words, all basketball players on a current D1 roster are eligible for an extra "free" year of eligibility.

When a student-athletes gets to the point they have used their four years of eligibility, they can be invited back for the "free" extra year by their school without counting against that school's scholarship limit.

For the Pilots it could mean that Diabate and Ali could come back on scholarship after their senior years and freshmen Zac Triplett and Hayden Curtis could play for 5 years at UP.  (I guess it could also mean Mikey Henn could come back for a 5th year of basketball during his 7 years attending college  Shocked ).

Of course the problem for small schools like UP is money.  Some schools may opt to bring back several players who used up their normal eligibility the previous season, as these players don't count against the scholarship limit (13 for men and 15 for women), but small school athletic departments may not be able to afford to do it.  The final decision to bring back a student-athlete for an extra year is up to the school.

(It is unclear to me if a player can transfer to another school for his or her 5th year and still not have their scholarship count against the new school's scholarship limit, but I suspect that is an option).

I'm told that a player who transfers this coming spring after his or her fourth year of eligibility will get their extra/fifth year of eligibility, but the transferring player WILL COUNT against the new school's scholarship limit.

Next year's transfer season is going to be wild.

I suppose this means there won't even need to be a discussion about redshirting anyone this year. Nothing to gain by saving them a year, so get everyone some garbage time if the situation arises.
