College leaders consider new transfer rule (Columbia Daily Tribune/AP)

Transfers are relevant to every school, including Boston College, as we have been known to get a few. When it comes to the fast-approaching 2014 Boston College Eagles football season or 2014-15 basketball season, we have a few incoming. (Some technically aren’t transfers because they graduated from their previous universities already, but you get the idea.)

From the looks of things, the heads of the college conferences are attempting to simplify and to some extent relax transfer rules to become more beneficial to students. Yet, as is often the case, the schools and the conferences want to make sure they’re still protected as well.

Of note:

"A recently passed proposal would eliminate the [family] hardship waiver [to play immediately] but give transfers back the year of eligibility, though they would still have to sit out a year at the new school."
