    If Brock leaves, the bottom four in the south is wide open. CU could make a move up the standings despite its youth.

    Who do you have penciled in for 2nd?

    I've got USC and then 5 teams with huge question marks.

    Can he leave for a Pac 12 school without restrictions?

    Yes. The conference goes by the NCAA transfer rules and does not impose any extra restrictions on in-conference transfers.

    Unsurprisingly Burfict is supposed to be gone as well.

    While the NCAA and conference may permit a transfer, I believe ASU could deny the release if they chose to. I can't imagine they would allow him to go to UCLA.

    He must have been awfully good in the classroom to have the option to graduate after 3. It happens, but you'd think his football responsibilities esp. as QB would interfere with taking extra classes.

    What? Osweiler doesn't want to play for Mr. Sincerity, Todd Graham? Why I heard him say just the other day how much he loved Rice, I mean Pitt, I mean ASU....

    Not if he graduates. Once he graduates, he's fair game.

    I don't think that's correct. The graduate exception allows the player to transfer without sitting out a year but I believe that you still must obtain a release from your prior school to transfer. To date, only one school has ever refused to release a player under the graduate exception rule (St. Joe's Todd O'Brien was denied a release to play basketball for UAB - a story I posted in the BBall forum a few weeks ago).

    In practical terms, I think the player and the school usually work it out ahead of time and agree on schools that the player can matriculate to. In this case, I can't imagine ASU would allow him to go to UCLA - not only a conference rival, but in the same division to boot.

    He'll have to find a school with a graduate program that Arizona State doesn't offer

    Is it music management? I hear UCLA has a great program for young aspiring rappers, or so this one guy tells me.

    Not exactly true.

    He is a poli-sci major so he'll have to find something ASU doesnt offer which is kind of hard.

    "Transferring within the Pac-12 would also require UCLA to seek a waiver from the conference.
    The Pac-12 has stringent penalties attached to intra-conference transfers. According to a conference official, a player typically has to sit one year, lose one year of eligibility and would be unable to be given a scholarship for one year.
    For a waiver to be granted, UCLA would need support from seven faculty representatives at other conference schools."

    Has Texas fan falsely declared victory in the "We get Osweiler for one year to solve our QB problems" sweepstakes?

    Well none of these transferring rules matter anymore... Todd Graham suspends onyeali indefinitely and loses Brock and Vontaze to the league. Great start down here in Tempe.
