Regardless of your thoughts on the Wes Lunt situation, the controversy surrounding the quarterback's transfer speaks to the pressing need for a standardized means of handling transfer scenarios.
Friday, news broke that former 4-star quarterback Wes Lunt would see his transfer efforts greatly hindered by Oklahoma State. The Tulsa World reported that Cowboys head coach Mike Gundy is barring the rising sophomore, who was asked to redshirt this season, from transferring to any school in the SEC, Pac-12 and Southern Mississippi. That is, of course, in addition to the standard blocking of in-conference schools and teams on future schedules.
Hence, Central Michigan showing up on the list of places the Pokes will not release Lunt.
Gundy's actions certainly set the criticism world ablaze. ESPN's David Ubben commented on the specifics of the story. Yahoo!'s Frank Schwab also had thoughts on the petty nature of the decision by Gundy. As did Matt Murschel of the Orlando Sentinel.
