Justin Fields, the most valuable transfer in college football history, could be the subject of one of the most important decisions in NCAA history.
The second-to-last sentence of the story: "He is expected to appeal to the NCAA to be eligible this season."
My reaction: On what grounds? He's not transferring closer to home. Georgia isn't facing NCAA sanctions. There aren't other extenuating circumstances we know of. How could Justin Fields possibly get an immediate-eligibility waiver to play in 2019?
On Tuesday morning, Andy Staples noted that an incident at the Georgia-Tennessee game on Sept. 29 gives Fields a legitimate case for immediate eligibility. That incident makes the NCAA's ruling on Justin Fields' waiver one of the most important decisions they've ever made.
