Thread: Transfer Rules

    Default Transfer Rules

    Could someone please explain how in D2 players can transfer freely and be eligible the next academic year as opposed to sitting out a year. I understand D1 to D2 or D2 to D1 moving up or down. Also how does the deal work with players having so many semesters of eligibility available. As in typically 8 semesters would equal 4 years and players allowed redshirt or medical redshirt to extend time. Thanks for clarification.

    Regarding semesters of eligibility and all that, we'll need someone like Augieholic or Stanger86 to chime in (at least from the NSIC posters). That's not my area of expertise.

    Regarding transfers down, you can always transfer down without sitting a year. If you transfer up (D2 to D1) you have to give up a year of eligibility. If you still have your redshirt year, you can burn that one. If you don't have your redshirt year available, then you simply lose a year.

    Only exemption is if you transfer down to a JuCo and then jump up to a D1 immediately after that year in JuCo.

    Examples:
    Logan Doyle at Northern State transferred down from South Dakota State without having to sit out any time, even though he used his redshirt year at SDSU.

    Jordan Poydras from St. Cloud two years ago transferred to D1 Utah Valley State after his junior season at St. Cloud. He hadn't used a redshirt year yet, so he used that redshirt year on his one-year required sit-out, then played his senior year for the...whatever their mascot is.

    Nuni Omot from Concordia-St. Paul DID burn his redshirt year at Concordia, so when he decided to go D1 after his redshirt freshman year, he had to transfer down to a JuCo for one season (his redshirt sophomore year), meaning he could then play two full years at Baylor, which is where he is now.

    I have no idea if that helps at all, but, like I said, there are other guys on here who can probably explain most elements of this better than I can. Just figured I'd get the conversation going a little bit.

    So typically would have to sit out if transfer in conference? which would make sense. Don't see why a D2 super team couldn't be created get 3-4 big time players from different conferences to transfer to one school.

    What about coaches? Move from one MIAA school to another, do they have to sit out too?

    I know you are being funny but has that ever happened without being fired from one school. I know Tom Smith coached at UCM and MWSU.

    We've had a few in the NSIC. Bowen went from Bemidji to Duluth. Dolan went from Upper Iowa to Wayne. Those were both within the last five years or so, I believe.

    You are correct, might not have been too funny but of course rules are different for coaches than they are for players.

    With at least two openings already in the MIAA, I do wonder if we'll see any moving around from "within" so to speak.

    I've also heard that Pitt may be courting Kim Anderson already.

    Don't really see Anderson at Pitt State or wouldn't want to.

    And neither really worked out at all. Certainly not in Duluth.
