Legislation could have HUGE impact on recruiting

Follow me on Twitter @MeetMeAtThe50 for original thoughts and a good aggregate source of breaking info.
I'm really getting tired of changes like this for no reason. The coaches don't seem to want it so why are they pushing it??

Seems rather short sighted to me.
From a "layman's" perspective this sounds a little ridiculous, but, I would like to hear Spurrier's opinion. I'm sure there's a lot more to consider than we know from the outside.
Looks like it's going to favor coaches willing to work the hardest at maximizing their contact with the prospects.
Spurrier...I appreciate him plenty
Contact needs to be more limited rather than more extensive. In my opinion, there doesn't need to be phone calls and in-house visits during a recruit's junior year. Coaches should be able to meet these kids at camps, at showcases, and talk through the high school coaches. This will add to the circus.
We need to just simplify it. A few rules. Open communication allowed once you are a jr. After you complete 10th grade. Only allow contact with jr's during visits to your campus from Sept to Dec. from jan to August is open. Contact with sr allowed all year. Early sign date 1st wed in July. Late sign 1st Wed in feb.
Or programs that hire professional tweeters.
• The elimination of legislation that limits only full-time coaches to communicate with prospects and their families. Support staff and administrative personnel would be allowed to call recruits but not to visit them off campus.
My thoughts exactly.
I think this could help us in theory. While we don't have the tradition of some of the major powers in College football, we do have the resources. In theory we could outwork them for recruits that otherwise would choose to go to bama, ND, etc......Of course with them allowing support staff to contact recruits, maybe that would level it off somewhat but you'd have to think a coach contacting them would mean far more. Of course guys like Saban etc....are not going to be outworked, but long-term it could be to our advantage.....maybe.....actually I'm not sure.
I can't quite figure out which is dumber the NCAA for having a rule book you can't navigate or the respectful schools that now have more compliance people than coaching staffs. It has gotten borderline stupid.
Appears to me the NCAA is trying to make things easier for themselves from an enforcement standpoint. Less things for them to police.
Keep pushing that agenda. Even in the best years in program history.
Or, a bunch of coaches buggin the ever living *&(* out of recruits, leading them to
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
To quote Gene Stallings, "If the NCAA is for it, I am usually against it"
"Act like you've been there before and expect to be back." - Bear Bryant
Room for improvement, even in Tuscaloosa.
I hope you are the same way in your professional career. You are the one poster on here I wish I knew personally or knew of trough some other avenue. Steve Cook and Steve Miller were the other two but I know enough about them through their posts that their identities are not as intriguing now.
Maybe you can be my mentor. I hope to have the same drive and determination as you one day!
