True. But if finances are an issue, or if the player wants his diploma to come from his current school, the player can stay at the school. And as a "counter," he almost certainly keeps his jersey and therefore, his opportunity to change coach's mind.
More players should call the bluff. There's no point having leverage if you don't use it when the time comes.
I have never agreed with that approach. Until now. Given the current situation, with rosters past full everywhere you look, finding someplace else to go will be a big problem. Unless you have a transfer already lined up calling the bluff may be the best move. But it’s risky and you had better be prepared for the consequences
