COLUMBUS, Ind. – I don’t have anything against transfers. Sometimes, for whatever reason, things just don’t work out. But what I can’t understand is how the NCAA allows players to transfer midseason from one program to the next. 

Chattanooga is playing with four in the East Regional, getting drummed at the minute. (They had a player go home after the team won the conference championship because she was homesick. How a player can do that to her team in the postseason is beyond me, but that’s for another blog.) 

Peru’s Maria Salinas transferred from Chattanooga in the fall and is here at the Central Regional wearing a Florida State uniform. She opened with a 77 – no birdies – to post the second-best score on the team.

Obviously, both programs could use the help of Salinas. But, in my opinion, she should be sitting out this semester.
