Current TV analyst Mark Richt had a bizarre tweet about the new proposed NCAA transfer rule.

Mark Richt is retired from coaching college football and has moved into the television world. That means he gets to offer up his opinion on a variety of topics.

His latest hot take came on the heels of the news that the NCAA may finally get with the times and not punish players who transfer schools. Richt had a sarcastic reaction to the proposal.

This screams "old man yells at cloud." Richt is taking the approach that players will just start transferring like crazy and the sport will be ruined. He is ignoring the fact that there are legitimate reasons for a lot of transfers and players are sometimes forced to sit out a year under the current rules.

A player could be homesick, in a bad program, or may have a terrible coach. There are plenty of reasons to transfer and automatically assuming top programs will poach all the top talent in the country is a baseless overreaction by Richt.
