    The NCAA Hardship Waver Change

    The NCAA’s Leadership Council is making waves this week. The biggest headline from its annual meeting was the elimination on all food limits for players. Next up? An alteration in transfer guidelines. This isn’t a massive revision, but rather a tweak coaches have lobbied for in the past couple of years. And the rule change is not official yet.
