DESTIN - Count former Florida Gators coach Will Muschamp among the fans of changing the SEC's graduate transfer rules.

The current rules prevent teams from taking a grad transfer for three years if the last one did not make adequate academic progress. The SEC is the only league with such a rule.

"I think we need to have the same rules as everybody else in college football..." said Muschamp, the head coach at South Carolina. "It is a little unfair for us as a league to have a different set of rules."

Unless the rule changes this week, the Gators can't take former Notre Dame quarterback Malik Zaire, who is considering his grad transfer options.

One other interesting thing from this morning's SEC meetings: Arkansas coach Bret Bielema said he thinks 75-90 percent of his recruiting class will sign in the new December window.
