I’m seeing quite a bit of “well it took long enough” comments out there … but I don’t see that. Tuesday, Kansas State granted Leticia Romero’s request to transfer to any non-Big 12 school. It seems to me that’s a reasonable limitation set by the school. Romero can now find a comfortable place for her to play basketball. And this sorry saga is now over.
We can talk all day about the motives, the politics, the due and undue pressures that were involved here. But my feeling is this: Credit goes to the people who can fix their mistakes. Good on Kansas State for getting through all the red tape and doing the right thing before it was too late.
I will add here: The NCAA transfer rules are a travesty. But that’s a whole other fight.
