This is a good thing.

Hafley explained Sunday that this year due to pandemic anyone that played in 2020 had an extra year to play and this year ('21) they did not count toward your team's 85 scholarship total. Now the 85 total goes back in effect for 2022. Just because a senior wants another year the NCAA teams are not obliged to offer them a scholarship for their pandemic year. This also applies to seniors whom redshirted a year. They are not guaranteed a scholarship for year 5.

This puts coaches in a difficult position. Especially now that the Transfer Portal has become much more important . Coaches desire more spots for new recruits and transfer upgrades.

These players that now have extra year can go play for other school with a good Masters or MBA program . Everyone wins.

This is a good thing .

All good things must come to an end. Muse transferring is to be expected. I assume he was not invited back for 2022. And, Hafley needs his spot on the roster to recruit and build on.

Unfortunately, Muse missed the final four games this year with a season-ending neck injury. Muse arrived at BC in 2017, redshirted, and he concludes his five year Boston College career with 69 tackles, five interceptions, 4.5 tackles for loss, four pass deflections and a forced fumble.

We all wish him well. Muse will have immediate eligibility, wherever he lands, as a graduate transfer. Best of luck to him in the future and many thanks for his contributions to BC and the team.

"Should I Stay or Should I Go Now" The Clash 1982

Due to Covid no scholarship cap this year (2021)

They now go back to 85 scholarships '22.

If you cashed in your four years of scholarships and you are not going to be a starter next year even with a redshirt year or pandemic year you don't have to leave but you are not going to get one of those 85 scholarships. If you want to still play or get your MBA for free transfer.

NCAA coaches often encourage underclassmen that don't pan out to transfer to schools where they have a chance to play. This is a big win as it basically adds another opportunity to fill a scholarship player with the potential to make a difference. Sometimes a player might realize they will play little if any but stays on to get a BC diploma without paying the $70K / year tuition. Can't blame them.

How an ACC coach managers the scholarships is very important and can make a difference. It like an NFL coach or GM manages the salary cap.

Now in '22 they are back to 85 scholarships . I'm guessing BC could of had 95 to 100 players on the roster and most on scholarships (guess) in '21 due to the addition of pandemic super seniors and no cap.

Of the say 100 scholarships are:

Graduating 4 year seniors
Redshirt seniors not offered scholarship for year 5
Seniors or super seniors that are not starting '22 , not invited back.
Walk-Ons (non scholarship)
Undergraduates that leave to get a chance to play elsewhere

The net number is the total scholarships available for recruits and transfers.

Around the NCAA some transfers announced moths ago, many this week after regular season and can from now until next July and still play the 2022 season.

Very well researched, insightful and written. Thanks!
 
Wide receiver Kobay White is the latest Eagle to enter the transfer portal.

Not surprised since we have a big time recruit coming in Joseph Griffin, assuming he doesn’t flip like our top recruit did last year. Was disappointed that Kobay wasn’t able to contribute more due to injuries and a new system. I wish him the best, hopefully he’ll be able to recover and play to his potential.
