    Per Pac 12 article entitled "Pac-12 universities adopt sweeping reforms for student-athletes, guaranteeing scholarships, improving health care, and more" http://pac-12.com/article/2014/10/2...weeping-reforms-student-athletes-guaranteeing (also includes video interview with Larry Scott).

    Just one part of the article:


    The Conference’s new rules apply to Pac-12 student-athletes across all sports, and include:

    Athletic scholarships will be guaranteed for four years for student-athletes in all sports.
    Student-athletes who leave school before graduating will be able to use the remainder of their educational expenses later to earn their degrees.
    Medical expenses for student-athletes who are injured during their college athletic careers will be covered for up to four years after a student-athlete leaves the institution.
    Student-athletes who transfer between Pac-12 institutions will be able to receive athletic scholarships immediately.
    Student-athletes will be represented in the Conference governance structure.

    (Thanks to topspin on the volleytalk blog for pointing me to this article.)

    I love that all of this.

    All the stuff to take care of the athletes better was a long time coming and needed to happen.

    I was surprised and happy to see that the Pac-12 has decided to remove extra penalties on a player transferring within the conference. We want to keep Pac-12 talent in the Pac-12. If a player's gonna transfer, the player's gonna transfer. Now, instead of seeing that player end up stocking the Mountain West talent we'll see that player on a different Pac-12 team.

    I'm conflicted on this issue. I only like it when players transfer to CU. When they transfer out, I'd rather see them buried somewhere in the MAC. I hear Toldedo is the Harvard of Northwest Ohio.
