Big 12 To Adopt SEC Transfer Policy

It's probably about time

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

From Oklahoma and the Joe Mixon issue, to Tyreek Hill going from Bedlam hero to kicked off the team and now with the recent events happening in Waco, the past year for Big 12 teams haven't exactly been great, especially if you're working for the public relation teams.

Regardless of how these situations was or is being taken care of by each team, there is one clear problem: the athletes have got to stop doing stupid things. One league, the SEC has already made moves to make sure events like such don't happen.

In an ESPN article from May, the SEC adopted a proposal that stated:

"a transfer student-athlete who has been subject to official university of athletics department disciplinary action at any time during enrollment at any previous collegiate institution (excluding limited discipline applied by a sports team or temporary disciplinary action during an investigation) due to serious misconduct (as defined herein) shall not be eligible for athletically-related financial aid, practice or competition at an SEC member institution."

Now, the Big 12 has began to take a stand, according to ESPNs Brett McMurphy, who sent out this Tweet Wednesday.

Will this stop the problem that has begun to plague the sport that so many wait countless months for? Probably not completely, but it could be the first step.
