I will say that if a coach has good reason to believe another school has been tampering with his player and encouraging them to transfer -- even if there's no smoking gun that can be turned over to the NCAA -- I can grant ethical grounds for blocking a transfer to that school. But a shotgun prohibition like this just looks petty. And no, it's nothing new. But information flows more freely these days, and a lot of things that happen in college athletics don't look so good when the lights are turned up.
