 Southern Section spokesman Thom Simmons said Tuesday that the section continues to investigate an unusual amount of transfer students who arrived to play football at Upland since the end of the last school year. Simmons said there have been 13 transfer students. The school approved 10 as residential transfers, but that triggered intervention by Southern Section Commissioner Rob Wigod, who vowed last year to meet with school officials whenever a large number of transfers showed up at a particular school.

 It's the second year of a revised CIF state transfer rule that reduced the penalty for transferring without moving from one year to about one month, and there's still debate about whether things are better or worse. CIF Southern Section Commissioner Rob Wigod, who has been a strong supporter of the rule, met with reporters earlier this month to discuss lots of issues, and one of them was transfers. There were close to 15,000 transfers statewide last school year. Wigod makes it clear the new CIF rule was never designed to deter or reduce transfers but to manage them.

 Southern Section Commissioner Rob Wigod has scheduled a special meeting of the Southern Section Council for June 10 to approve playoff groupings.  April 30 was the original day the Southern Section Council was scheduled to meet to approve final playoff groupings for 2014-2016.
