Something that came up during lunch today was the new recruiting rules. Unlimited contact (texting/calling) was the first thing I took away, but Perroni said something that was surprising. Basically anyone employed by the university can go out and recruit. GAs, Quality Control coaches, etc. The school could even hire someone like Perroni to recruit for them.
Doesn't that seem a bit excessive? Recruiting is already getting out of hand to some degree, but sending maybe 20 guys out to recruit at once (as opposed to the 8 allowed now)? Wow.
(Perroni/Hamm/Bloom, please correct anything if I'm mistaken.)
It's a arms race and we're headed for nuclear war.
Win we shall, yes we can, yes we will.
As someone who intends to coach college football, I love it! More job opportunities and stepping stones for potential coaches who did not play college ball. It totally works for me!
This is the equivalent of the NCAA just waiving the white flag on trying to enforce all of their current rules. The playing field between schools with large athletic budgets and those without was already greatly tilted.
Recruiting will become a full-time position now. A school like Texas can go out and buy the best recruiters and talent evaluators to essentially recruit only and have them bring the coaches the prospects that best fit their system. A school could technically have regional recruiting directors that are paid by the school but may rarely ever set foot on campus which means recruiting will truly be national for every major college program.
It will be interesting to see the different recruiting strategies employed under these new rules.
Under this rational I guess a program can hire a specific individual to carry the bag instead of handing it to a trooper taylor type...a coach has too many other responsibilities to be so burdened.

I can't imagine the range of illegal benefits that will come from this.
Yes, schools can (and will) effectively be able to have a separate recruiting staff, but off campus visits are still restricted to the coaching staff from how I read it.

We're close to college athletes being able to be paid (finally.) I bet it happens within the next five-seven years.
I don't think any school is going to set up regional recruiting offices, just seems like a giant waste of money. Except for maybe a school like Hawai'i.
Aubrey has found a new job folks, he's now contributing to recruiting.
SEC SEC SEC!!!
Forget Aubrey, where do i sign up, sounds like a good side job
Your logic is boggling my mind
Student-Athletes are already being paid in the form of scholarships. When schools start to pay the students to play sports that is truly going to take away from the whole system and it will just be they are athletes not students.
Far too many of them in FB & BB are already athletes and not really students
perhaps there will be semester stipends. but i would be very suprised to see more than $1500 a semester being given to athletes. remember whatever you do for the football team you also have to do for womens tennis, cross country, golf, soccer, softball etc. Title IX is a serious constraint on paying athletes. many smaller FBS schools cannot pony up the cash across the board. there will be substantial push back on this to begin with and a strong push for pretty limited caps.
Not if the payout is based on revenue, this was a ruling made earlier this week that I think sets he stage for that.
A judge rejected the NCAA's motion that players in the antitrust suit led by former UCLA star Ed O'Bannon should be precluded from advancing their lawsuit on procedural grounds.
