    So, with the blanket waiver having been approved today, I assume that means that Texas Tech transfer, Brianna Cantu will be eligible to compete in the Spring.

    You are correct. She will be immediately eligible to compete.

    Was her only gating factor that she transferred within the conference and her old school (with newly hired coach) wouldn't give the release?

    For undergraduate transfers, it's an overall conference rule, I believe.

    For graduate transfers, a school can grant a release so SA doesn't have to sit out the mandatory transfer season.

    Much respect to Texas tech for allowing her release. It bothers me so much when teams hold out players forcing them too miss an entire season.

    I was listening to a podcast and they were talking about how Louisiana had so many transfers and how that would be interesting to see the team chemistry. I've seen so many players transfer in/out of that program. And I checked to see if Jade Gorterez stuck with them. She has and is a starter in the infield. Amazing to think she was a starter at Texas, a starter at Arizona State and now a starter at Louisiana!

    ULaLa for us old-timers. I still have not heard a rational reason that ULaLA gets to be called Louisiana University and UL-Monroe doesn't.

    However, being Lousiana, I am sure money was transferred under a table to get the job done.

    Self-made prestige. But then, who let Texas State brand themselves "The Texas State" university? Good 'ol Southwest Teachers College, with a famous graduate (LBJ), was it's humble beginnings.

    Racer I know money was passed under the table on the SWT change. North Texas had tried for years to change its name to TSU. The answer was always the same - all of the "State Universities (NTSU, SWT, SFA, etc.) would keep the "State University" name. Finally, North Texas called BS and changed to their second choice - the University of North Texas. Their first choice was Texas State University. That was denied because those in power said that Texas State University would confuse people with the other "State University" schools. Fast forward and after a legislature session or two and basically overnight SWT becomes TSU. Things that happen in the middle of the night always feature a value exchange.
