Ready, set, mayhem: Pac-12 removes key restriction on intraconference transfers

Arizona and UCLA were among the initial winners Monday as the Pac-12 presidents voted to remove the redshirt requirement for intraconference transfers in football and basketball.

The unanimous decision means undergraduates switching from one school in the conference to another will be eligible the following season.

Until this point, undergraduates had to sit out a year of competition at their new school.

The ACC approved a similar measure in March.

“It’s good for players and schools,” a Pac-12 source said.

Israel strikes Gaza tunnels as truce efforts remain elusive


GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip (AP) — The Israeli military unleashed another heavy wave of airstrikes Monday on the Gaza Strip, saying it destroyed militant tunnels and the homes of nine Hamas commanders. International diplomacy to end the weeklong war that has killed hundreds appeared to make little headway.

Israel has said it will press on for now with its attacks against Hamas, the militant group that rules Gaza, and the United States signaled it would not pressure the two sides for a cease-fire even as President Joe Biden said he supported one.
