I can't wait to hear what his hardship is...from the SBT.
South Florida head football coach Skip Holtz said Wednesday that Notre Dame transfer Aaron Lynch will explore petitioning the NCAA for a waiver to play for the Bulls in 2012.
Holtz made his remarks during a Google+ a roughly 30-minute video chat with fans. A complete replay of it can be seen here: http://tinyurl.com/7rv5e8a

It's posts like these that are my biggest problem with our fan base. I bet you celebrated Amir Carlisle being granted a "hardship" waiver???
Seriously? At least Amir had the excuse that his father moved to Indiana. Lynch literally went to USF for his girlfriend only. If that is hardship then you are have no maturity, and if you reward this spoiled behavior with eligibility, then you have no morals, sense, or intelligence.
I also celebrated when Alex Bullard was granted hardship as well. Difference is they both had good excuses.

I agree with Guy and PB. The reasoning for him to leave to be by his girlfriend is rediculous. His Mom moved to Ohio to be closer to him, and now she is left up here, while he is down in the fun and sun of Florida. When your family moves, there is not much most kids can do but move with them. Very different circumstances IMO. Everyone has an opinion ND76, and you are entitled to yours. We don't need to get on other people just because opinions are different. Not singling you out ND76. I think everyone should realize this name calling isn't what we want OUR ND board to represent. Now everyone cyber-hug.
3 time POTW
I wish he hadn't, so he would have a extra year of eligibility after Wood is gone. The problem is that the NCAA is too soft on the real issues and a bunch of jacknuts on the minor one's. I am over the whole Lynch thing, but without a better excuse he should have to sit. Spencer Boyd left because he had a kid while in high school and he had to sit out a year. Just my
Sorry, but I dont buy that excuse. If being near his family was the issue, Carlisle should have went to Purdue. Lafayette is literally 2.5 hours away. He never should have gotten the waiver under those circumstances, and since the NCAA is practically handing out waivers, Lynch should get one too. Im not upset Carlisle got one, but the NCAA should (though they never are) be consistent.
I also didn't want or expect Carlisle to get a hardship waicer and i dont his reasoning behind it deserved one with that said if Spencer boyd had to sit out a year so should lynch. Boyd at least a solid reason behind it

I think the 2.5 hour drive to school is a little different for family compared to a 30+ hour drive to California. And not everyone can just hop on a plane. If there isn't one in place now, maybe the NCAA needs to put up some parameters for such circumstances. Certain amount of miles from family will get clearance. Who knows. Can't make everyone happy.
I'm not saying Lynch deserves a waiver but my point is Carlisle was granted a waiver then I see no reason that Lynch should not be granted one as well. Alice Lynch is moving back to Florida with him so his family will be located there so that takes that argument out of it.
