Very well researched, insightful and written. Thanks!Who Stays

Due to Covid no scholarship cap this year (2021)
They now go back to 85 scholarships.
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.
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.
