Confirmed as reported that Auburn, Tennessee, Texas A&M and Mississippi State have requested permission to speak to football seniors. In addition, Texas Tech, Louisville and Louisiana Tech have too. No indication anyone intends to transfer at this time.

Just dirty. 

NCAAs sanctions on Mizzou, yes. Teams inquiring to the school about kids' interest in transferring, not dirty.

It’s all dirty. Not that it’s wrong. The main question is their center a senior?

How is it dirty if  you go to the school with the inquiry?

Should you not at least let them declare before you call?

No reason not to if you are only calling the school or HC.

I thought they had to enter a portal of sorts.

Sounds like poaching their players is legal....but I still don't like the feel of it.  We've been there before and will probably be there again some day.

That's to contact the player, not the school or HC. One good thing the NCAA does is if a school is sanctioned transferrred undergrad players don't have to sit a year.

@ellitor, that’s an overstatement. Any player with eligibility that would expire during a postseason ban is free to transfer with sitting. Anyone else needs a waiver. That’s why Shea Patterson, for example, needed a waiver. He had eligibility extending beyond OM’s bowl ban.

Well then it wasn't an overstatement. I was just flat out wrong on that part.

Ha! I was trying to be nice! Some players can transfer without sitting, some cannot.

That's why the multi-year bowl ban is such a hammer. It exposes a large portion of your roster to open transfer. They don't need a release either. They are simply free to leave, which is different than a typical non-graduate transfer. I'm glad we reached out. Cale Garrett (leading tackler at LB), DeMarkus Acy (lead team in INTs and second in PBUs), and Yasir Durant (two-year starter at LT with a RS available) are all free to leave and would be GREAT additions.

Mizzou might've gotten screwed, but that doesn't mean the players should all get screwed, too. They didn't do anything wrong. And, unlike a major state university, they have a very fleeting opportunity to be successful in football.

They're going to get contacted, so we might as well be one of the schools contacting them.

I do not think poaching was allowed in 93. If I am wrong, I stand corrected!  WDE!!
