Good conversation, no decision on SEC grad transfer change

DESTIN - Day 2 of the SEC's spring meetings didn't bring much clarity to the graduate transfer rules that could help determine the Florida Gators' starting quarterback against Michigan (and beyond).

"Nope," league commissioner Greg Sankey said Wednesday night when asked if he had a better sense for what rule changes might happen. "Still good conversation."

SEC coaches seem to want the conference to have the same rules as the rest of the NCAA. That would mean changing a rule that prohibits a program from taking a grad transfer for three years, if the last one did not make adequate academic progress.

If unchanged, the rule would prohibit UF from taking quarterback Malik Zaire, a grad transfer from Notre Dame who is considering the Gators.

Don't expect any decisions until Friday, so stay tuned.
