That's ridiculous.

Gilman went to Navy, probably the highest profile program he could go to, with a dream of a chance to play in the NFL. When he committed and started, a rule was in place that would allow him to defer service after graduation to pursue a professional football career. After he was there playing, they changed the rules on him . . . literally blocking any path he had to the NFL. The kid shouldn't have to "suck it up" and give up on his dream. There is nothing wrong with him transferring. And I don't think any ND fan would even have a problem with him having to sit out a year except for the fact that so many other transfers get the waiver with a less compelling claim.
