Discussion of the Falcon football team.

McDonald Waiver

From what I gather, the pending announcement is the result of the appeal. He has already been denied.
It’s not my point of view, it’s a fact.

Wow. Shows difference between Group and Power 5 schools.

There is no justification for letting Fields play right away at OSU or Martell at Miami and not McDonald at BGSU. I am not a particularly litigious person...but I would love to see the kids who were denied waivers band together to sue the NCAA as a class

In my opinion, they had better reasons than most QB transfers.

Everyone under the sun knew that it was a total fraud that Fields and Martell were granted waivers so quickly. Seems like the NCAA has since decided to apply more scrutiny than none at all.

Word is no finding until game week...I would guess that would make him ineligible for week 1, even if he wins appeal.

Doege got his waiver approved so there will be all sorts of stench if McDonald doesn't get his approved.

For good reason. I can't think of any argument where Doege should be approved over McDonald.

Agreed. In fact, he had less reason to leave, being a successful young starter. He didn’t land where his brother did nor is he “back home”. McDonald is lawyered up good. I remain optimistic.

McDonald's original lawyer who dealt with previous cases for NCAA football players is no longer representing anyone in the sport. Probably why this is taking longer.

I wish Doege all the luck and I hope he does well. I don't get how he got the waiver. I don't see the definition of hardship qualifying here barring circumstances out of our view. If Doege qualifies, then any player should get one penalty-free transfer.

I'm hoping he has a monster year at WVU. That is a QB friendly offense and he could put up some huge numbers.

Doege more than likely will redshirt but could play up to four games now

Apparently...the response filed by the team "losing" the player can have an impact. A couple of kids have accused Harbaugh of gumming up their requests by telling the NCAA a different version f events than the player. BC...IIRC...had another QB transfer to Rutgers and his waiver was initially denied. So..maybe they're playing games.

I believe the initial answer is always no. BC wont mess with us, in fact, probably the opposite. Loeffler left on good terms and hired the head coach’s son. Well played L.
