Lets dispel the misconception of pulling scholarships. Regardless of BIG 10 policy on coaching turnover, NU policy is that scholarships are guaranteed 4yr/full. 

FH can certainly encourage players to go elsewhere and even help place them, but he can't pull their scholarship. Scholarships are not 1yr renewable at NU. 

 

Technically you are correct: Anyone from last year's team is guaranteed to keep their 4 year scholarship at Nebraska. That doesn't mean they get to stay on the team in this case.

Given the coaching change we were allowed to move any player off the team.  Thus, any of the players who transferred could have stayed at Nebraska but would have to do so as a non-basketball player. This is having your (basketball) scholarship pulled.

 

Per Chris Heady:

Under NCAA rules, Hoiberg and his staff are allowed to move scholarship players off the team despite the student-athletes signing four-year scholarships with the school. Though the NCAA protects student-athlete scholarships in nearly every case, during a coaching change the NCAA allows the new coach to deny the renewal of the scholarship for the next season. Should the players choose, they would be allowed to stay at Nebraska on scholarship, but they would not count toward the 13 scholarships allotted to men’s basketball.

After this year it will go back to telling a guy he should move on and that guy deciding whether or not to do so.

Let's say in a hypothetical case that some player wants to finish his degree because he likes his professors so he or she remains at NU. Would they be able to walk back on to the team in that case if they wanted to do so?

The key point here is that NU is not going to leave these kids twisting in the wind, regardless of NCAA or BIG 10 rules, by them having being dumped and ultimately have to pay for their own school. Nebraska will make sure these kids are taken care of. Some posts in this thread seem to imply, intentionally or not, that Nebraska is not going to take care of these kids and that is simply not true. The optics of this can appear to be a bit harsh but rest assured that these kids will be looked after, either by helping to place them in another school or keeping them on scholarship. 

 

Also, to the APR question, the only way we would take a hit is a kid transferring had a GPA lower than 2.6. If academically they are in good standing (2.6 GPA) when transferring then it will not hurt UNL, which is why it is in the best interest of NU to take care of these kids. The key take away is the academic standing when the kid leaves UNL. Our APR could be hurt by Roby if he left school before completing the spring semester. This is what hurt Syracuse to lose scholarships back in 2010? when 3 of their players left early for the NBA and they didn't complete their spring semester. Does anyone know if he finished the spring semester?

I doubt it.

I suspect that if they walked on that they would then forego their scholarship, much in the same manner that if an academic scholly walk-on steps foot on the court during game action, that scholarship immediately becomes athletic.

I don't think I've read a single post where someone brought up a concern about any of these guys not having a scholarship somewhere other than Nana (because he was suspended).

Any sort of harshness you think you're seeing is solely about Nebraska telling some guys they couldn't play there anymore and most people understood once the initial shock wore off that it's probably a better situation for those guys to go to a team that's a better fit.

The difference is direct vs indirect and intention. What I was attempting to do was explain to those who may have concerns, that these kids will be taken care of by NU and we don't need to the NCAA or BIG to tell us to do that. We do have an out this season if we show choose to use it and that is if a kid who doesn't want to to go anywhere that they can continue at NU w/o counting against our scholarship limit.

 

Regardless, this is one of those topics that is no longer an issue, for this season at least; although I believe, if history is any indicator, we will be revisiting this topic again at the end of next season when there will likely be significant roster turnover.
