The Nebraska football team is on the verge of getting some of their best transfer players since the current iteration of the portal was a thing. Might they be the last as well?

A judge's ruling later Wednesday morning means it’s possible. Of course, it’s also possible that what replaces it will allow the Huskers to get even better even quicker. Or it could create complete chaos.

The ruling in question regards the NCAA’s policy against allowing second-time transfers outside of a few very specific situations. That’s part of a lawsuit by seven schools that are looking to get rid of the transfer rules altogether.

While the lawsuit in West Virginia seeks to give athletes the ability to transfer an unlimited amount of times and retain their immediate eligibility, some believe that should the rules be struck down - because of the waivers that make it unfair in some eyes - it could actually lead ot the NCAA being more strict.

It could mean that waivers will be eliminated. That no player can ever transfer a second time.

What’s clear is that should the judge rule that waivers are a problem, it could create bigger problems while the intent is to make things better. The Nebraska Cornhuskers are hardly the only school that will be affected. But they absolutely will be affected.

Nebraska Cornhuskers stars coming back

Monday night was a heck of a night for Nebraska football fans for a myriad of reasons. There was the talk that Dylan Raiola had reversed course and is about to decommit from Georgia. 

There’s the talk that former Ohio State quarterback Kyle McCord is about to commit to the Huskers as well. And then there is the fact that two of the better NU players are coming back fro another season in 2024.

On Monday night, offensive lineman Bryce Benhart and star rover Isaac Gifford are coming back. They announced their plans in an Instagram video that was plenty smart and funny. And it got Nebraska Cornhuskers fans all sorts of revved up.
