Transfer rules could be changing in college sports in a big way.

On the latest AP Top 25 College Football Podcast, Dennis Dodd of CBS Sports joins AP’s Ralph Russo to discuss the Big Ten’s proposal to allow all athletes to transfer one time without having to sit out a season.

Dodd broke the news last week that Big Ten athletic directors were planning to put forth a proposal that could become NCAA law as soon as the fall of 2021.

How did college sports get to a place where an idea that was once seen as too radical is now being supported by a Power Five conference?

Also, could this help bring some parity to college football? Or make it even more imbalanced at the very top?
