FILE - In this July 25, 2018, file photo, Stanford head coach David Shaw speaks at the Pac-12 Conference NCAA college football Media Day in Los Angeles. The NCAA’s Division I Council meets this week in Indianapolis, and it is expected to vote by Friday, April 19, 2019, on an amendment to the rules regarding graduate transfers and financial aid. If passed the proposal would require a grad transfer to count against a team’s scholarship total for two years no matter how much eligibility the player has remaining. Shaw, whose program routinely operates below the major-college maximum of 85 scholarship players, said he would not hesitate to bring in a star-level player as a grad transfer even if it meant having an vacant scholarship the next season. But teams could be less inclined to take that hit with a lesser player. (AP Photo/Jae C. Hong, File)
