5:19PM EDT November 2. 2012 - All summer, college basketball coaches have bemoaned what some have termed a transfer epidemic. More than 440 players switched schools, and many applied for waivers to gain immediate eligibility. The NCAA told USA TODAY Sports 15 such waivers were granted for eligibility for the 2011-12 season and 17 were denied.
