With just over a week before the Oklahoma Sooners officially kickoff the season, Dorial Green-Beckham received some bad news...

Earlier this month, Oklahoma filed a waiver on DGB's behalf citing the "run-off" rule in hopes of gaining immediate eligibility for one of the nation's top receivers. The "run-off" rule centers around the idea that a student is forced to transfer due to reasons outside of their control.

The rule helped LSU point guard become immediately eligible at Oklahoma St. after being dismissed. In most of the experts minds, DGB would receive the same treatment as the situation was nearly identical.

Of course, the ruling handed down says the NCAA did not believe this to be the case. However, Missouri initially suspended the wideout and later dismissed him from the team even though no charges were pressed in an incident involving another Missouri student. Now, DGB will be required to sit out a season due to the transfer rule.
