The former is fine, but yeah, the latter is insane.


The second...........you would be eligible to play immediately.

1. Would create a wild west scenario where everyone is a free agent at the end of every year in an uncapped market

2. Head coaches would have to re-recruit their entire rosters year in and year out

3. Total invitation to cheat and pay players at a much higher level than goes on now

4. P5 schools would almost have to at the very least double their support staffs to scout every roster in the country

This proposal is the worst thing I've ever seen in college sports. Outrageous. Really need to put an end to the NCAA and come up with a new governing body.

I think it would also further tilt the field of play to favor the top schools as they could get players that other schools develop. Players could compete for spots on the top teams and some players would switch schools to have the chance at a championship with no loyalty to the schools that developed them. That's got to be terrifying to the 2nd tier schools.

On immediate transfer--the idea you could transfer in the middle of say October doesn't sound right. I mean, there are still academic aspects to consider at least on paper and I would think most universities have some kind of rule that says you can't enroll in classes after the first week or so of the semester. (True story--today is that day at my university, and I actually had a student come to my office today to get his schedule done, a week and a half into the semester--he's not an athlete, he just doesn't quite have his #$!&@ together.)

Notre Dame has to vacate all wins from 2012 (the year they lost to Bama in the championship) and 2013 after the NCAA denied their appeal

Tennessee released John Currie's texts from last year's coaching search yesterday.

Brady Hoke was thirsty for that job.

Currie's search for Jones' replacement got so dire that even interim head coach Brady Hoke sent a text to Currie on Nov. 29 making sure Currie knew Hoke would be interested in the full-time job.

"JOHN I HOPE YOU DO KNOW I WOULD LIKE TO BE YOUR HEAD FOOTBALL COACH I DO KNOW THE ENVIRONMENT WE LIVE IN AND WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE AT TENNESSEE!" Hoke wrote, using all capital letters.

Herm!

The appeal of hiring Herm Edwards at Arizona State was that he would install an NFL-style structure in Tempe. One aspect of NFL culture no one expected Edwards to carry over, but one he’s apparently bringing with him, is roster cuts.

“There was a message sent earlier in (a team) meeting, and the message was very clear, that we were in the process of evaluating players. Between now and next week you’re going to find out the situation here and whether you’re going to continue to be part of it or not. I told them that when I first took the job and that’s the way we be honest with guys,” he said.

“I told some guys, if you continue to stay hurt, stay in the training room, you have no tape. I can’t grade you if you’re not on tape. All of a sudden some guys got well. It’s amazing.

“College football’s one of those unique sports where you give out 85 scholarships and players just think, ‘Well, it’s 85 scholarships. I’m good.’ No, you’re not good. You’ve earned your scholarship because of your ability to be a student-athlete, you’ve got to make sure you handle that part of the assignment, being a student part and being an athlete part. It’s a combination of both. If you don’t meet that standard, there’s consequences. Consequences are sometimes tough. If I don’t apply those consequences, then I’m not doing my job as a head coach.

Though the terms he uses and the frankness with which he speaks are different than his peers, there’s nothing revolutionary in what Edwards says here. Plenty of new head coaches find reasons to nudge players off the rosters they inherited, but most just don’t put it in those terms. It’s often framed as a shortcoming on the player’s part — recall Charlie Strong dismissing nine players in his first nine months at Texas — and/or he’s strongly encouraged to transfer. Rarely is it laid out as bare as, “You’re just not good enough to be on this team any longer.”

Edwards said players cut from the team would remain on scholarship at Arizona State, they just wouldn’t be Sun Devils football players. “You don’t lose your scholarship,” he said. “You lose the ability to play. That’s how it works.”

TaxSlayer restored "Gator" to their bowl game name, so we can go back to calling it the Gator Bowl. yay

This law suit is going to have a lot of long term consequences for the game. Its worth following. The NCAA knows it and has pulled every legal trick to get out of the court room with it. The prejudice involved here is amazing; determine guilt and then go back and attempt to find evidence to prove the case. Very Stalin-esque. McNair has been wronged in a way that he probably will never be able to recover in order to continue his career.
