    I saw that Fields was going to apply for a hardship to play immediately, but did not know on what basis so I came here. I figured the coach he committed to is still there, there is no investigation that we know of, no probation that we know of, no family issues that would send him to the state of Ohio, etc. And I read here about some BS reason. Give me a break. If he does not have to sit out 1 year, then you can kiss the transfer rule goodbye!!!!!

          Maybe the NCAA should publish a list of derogatory epithets that could be used without resulting in immediate eligibility elsewhere. Or they could make a rule that any player that has ever been insulted is immediately eligible wherever they want to go.

            why do people say this?

            this has zero bearing on an NCAA waiver.

            I hope he doesn't quote mine his college textbooks like he did Jeremiah 29:11. Do people not understand context any more? Sorry, this is a pet peeve.

              I know it has no bearing Law, I was simply stating what could have been the obvious BS reasons for why a player might claim hardship. I was making up facetious examples. The "I have a hardship excuse" is getting lame

              So Fields decides to transfer to a program where the position coaches use the N word. Classic!

                This just in >> "During UGa's last 3 games Justin Fields' momma was seen yelling the N-word epithet at him." Hey, that's racial and family hardships.

                Well so much for hoping to laugh at Fields when Martell beat him out. He just tucked tail and ran.

                  Bringing in a transfer is a kick to the throat like your steady girl saying she wants to date around. I could understand Martell feeling the fire to show up his disloyal school elsewhere.

                    It will be interesting to see how the NCAA lawyers carefully parse his waiver if he gets one. They aren't going to want to say no, but they aren't going to want to see this become a thing. After all, what if it hadn't been a UGA student/athlete, but just some drunk ass fan? Would that carry the same weight? If the answer is yes, i can see lots of guys getting shills to call them offensive names.

                      Could they grant a waiver for Fields on the specific grounds that he's a black athlete who was called a "n--", then deny such a waiver for a white athlete who was called a "cracker"? The possibilities go on and on.

                      Edit: Watch for the claim for a waiver to be analogous to a hostile work environment claim under employment law.

                        Can Martell apply for a waiver, claiming the racism in ga has adversely affected his career?

                          Article from ESPN claims Fields attorney (Tom Mars who assisted the players who left Ole Miss last year) is going to try to get a waiver so he can play this year, but that the waiver was not based on anything currently out in public:

                          "Mars said he was confident that Fields had a good case to play in 2019, but not for the reasons others have projected.

                          "Nobody who's on social media would have a problem with Justin getting a waiver if they knew the whole story,' Mars told ESPN last week."

                          Common lawyer rhetoric/posturing or is there something else going on in Athens?

                          What does the future hold for Ohio State at QB?
