Not everyone in Gainesville is happy to see forward Jon Horford be able to transfer to Florida and play immediately. The SEC eased its stance Friday on graduate student athlete transfers, allowing them to play immediately without going through a waiver process as long as the transfers meet certain standards. That includes Horford, a former Wolverine, and Virginia football player Jake McGee. And University of Florida president Bernie Machen opposes that, saying both of them should sit out one year. "If they really wanted to transfer somewhere else, they should sit out a year,” Machen said Friday at SEC spring meetings, according to the Orlando Sentinel. “Why didn't Horford stay at Michigan another year? Because he had a free pass." Both Horford and McGee are fifth-year seniors, received degrees from their former schools and are enrolling at UF as graduate students.
