Penn State Football Players May Immediately Transfer And Play At Another School

As today's punishment was doled out against Penn State's football program in the wake of the Freeh Report and the ensuing media frenzy and madness, one notable fact stood out that could directly affect the rest of college football -- particularly local teams like Kansas and Kansas State who have developed a penchant for bringing in transfer players.

Kansas is in its first year under Charlie Weis and has already brought in transfers like Dayne Crist to quarterback the team and Jake Heaps to serve as next year's presumed starter at QB as well. Weis is popular with players looking to make good on what limited time they have left in college knowing that he could provide a nice slide into the pros.

Kansas State also has a great program that's already successful in the Big 12 and Bill Snyder knows how to get the most out of his players. Every year, K-State has a number of successful JuCo players who come in and make an impact, so it's clear that Snyder knows how to bring in guys without upsetting the system or culture already in place.

Both of these could make interesting landing spots for one or two Penn State players who might now transfer knowing they will never participate in a bowl game -- with the ban of no postseason for four years coming on the Penn State program.
