    In the vast majority (99.9%) I'm sure you are right, however there are instances where it does happen. Ever watch moneyball? The Peter Brandt character is included in a trade, not a player but a personnel guy. I know it happens from time to time in business too. And while you are technically correct on the 1 year contract vs the 4 year contract I don't think it is that cut and dry. I would imagine looking into the contract that it is up to the university's discretion whether or not the contract is optioned for extra years rather than the players otherwise there would be no stopping the "free agency" aspect of transfers. I've never been a scholarship athlete so I don't know that for a fact however I doubt the players go and sign a new contract every year.

    Yeah, I generally speak to the 99.9%, not the 0.1%. And yes, it’s up to the school if they want to add additional years onto it, but it’s also up to the player if they want to say “no thanks” and leave.

    Yes The player is free to go elsewhere but they have to have a release to go anywhere they want without repercussions.

    Nobody but the parties involved know what really transpired. That said, since OR decided to throw UGA under the bus, I hope the SEC denies his waiver request and he begins his Ole Miss adventure next year.
