Block on Marve transfer out of bounds - College Football - Rivals.com
Miami was once the USC of NCAA Football. Now they are nothing but a laughing stock of the NCAA.
If you follow NCAA football as religiously as I do you will know what has happened to Robert Marve.
Schools commonly limit where a player can transfer, often to other schools within its league.
Shannon took it to the extreme. According to Marve, he was prohibited from transferring to 27 schools.
That included all 11 of the other teams in the ACC, all 12 in the SEC and four others in the state of Florida. Even lower-level programs such as Florida International apparently now terrify the Hurricanes.
Friday evening, after this column was originally posted, Miami softened its stance slightly and will now allow Marve to transfer on scholarship to any SEC school other than Florida, LSU and Tennessee. Miami alleges those schools were tampering with the player. The ACC and in-state ban stands though.
Marve hails from Tampa. His father Eugene has prostate cancer and while it’s not the stated reason for the transfer, Marve understandably wants to stay in the Southeast, if not in state.
