SEC: Reaping the Benefits

By - July 26, 2006

In what has been a widely debated rule in college football recently, Vanderbilt's Bobby Johnson has no problem with the rule that allows athletes to transfer to another school and be able to play immediately as long as they are doing graduate work. And why wouldn't he be? One of his own quarterbacks has done exactly just that.

Quarterback Richard Kovalcheck transferred from Arizona and is available for the 2006 season as a reult of him pursuing a graduate degree. While some coaches have been critical of this rule, Johnson expressed his pleasure with the rule. "I think it is a very good rule," Johnson said. "It's going to benefit the student athlete. And It gives athletes a chance to get some of their graduate work paid for."
