NCAA announces elimination of rules such as prohibitions on texting recruits and regulations of printed recruiting materials.
Division I took its first steps toward a rulebook that is more meaningful, enforceable and supportive of student-athlete success when the Board of Directors on Saturday adopted a set of proposals aimed at creating a more flexible manual based on common sense.

Not good news for us

Bout damn time. The NCAA is slower than hell. Should have never outlawed text messaging. Next then can work on allowing coaches to feed there players a bagel with spreads. Right now it's legal to give them a bagel but you can't provide cream cheese, butter, or peanut butter. The NCAA is a joke.
FWIW, I read an article that stated most all coaches were against these rule changes. The NCAA is the one pushing them because they are understaffed and will have less to oversee.
This sucks for all parties involved sans the NCAA. it eliminates a bulk of secondary violations and makes their jobs easier. Asst coaches will now be forced to recruit around the clock to keep up with the sabans, meyers, and dabos of the world. Recruits and their families will never have any peace(esp. top recruits). Additionally, lazy recruiters will fail, and fail miserably. You will prolly see non-coaching recruiting staffs formed just to handle the extra load.
If you have a staff of ho-hum recruiters, and less money to spend on recruiting, the quality of classes brought in each year will likely decline.
I can't believe the NCAA approved this circus show, but at least kids will commit earlier to stop the hounding.
They could be more reluctant to give out their # or turn off the phone but, they will probably just commit to the dabos of the football elite.
That's the likely result, IMO. It'll definitely give an advantage to aggressive recruiters, as well as to schools willing to pour money into their recruiting budget.
Spurrier...I appreciate him plenty
If there were rules that were unenforceable or didn't lead to meaningful punishment what difference does it make if eliminated?
You mean there is currently no advantage to guys who work hard, treat their job as if it's a job and actually earn their pay? Wow! What is this world coming to?
Not just as it relates to football and not singling out our staff but there is a lot of truth in what mikeyal says. Look at society today and welfare. JMO
The lifting of restrictions on text messaging could be bad for us. Our head coach does not like - or believe it to be necessary - to text recruits all day every day. Others will do it all day every day. It could be a disadvantage.
I wouldn't trade SOS for anyone and I am tired of the same people having multiple threads each day complaining about how he recruited. Primarily, because I don't understand how often one thinks they need to make the same point over and over. Also, I don't understand why they need to say it fifteen different ways. It mucks up this board.
With all that being said, the burden will fall squarely on our assistants' shoulders because our head coach won't do it to the degree other head coaches will.
I think the rule stinks. The kids will get barraged more than they do now. Coaches will have to work even more than they do now. For those that are under some impression assistant coaches don't work hard, that's crazy. Even the ones some like to call lazy work harder than most would believe.

With more SEC rev coming in I see no reason why we couldn't have a staff of just recruiters. Unless NCAA has rules against it.
They will just hire the compliance employees that won't be needed to monitor the coach's and self report schools that were breaking the old rules.
It's gonna be a free for all. Dabo can hire his mom to text recruits and their parents all day. I don't see this turning out good for anybody.
It will turn out well for schools who are willing to spend a lot of money for non-coach personnel. It will help schools who are willing to put on elaborate football camps. It will favor teams willing to spend a lot of money on mail-outs, media guides, etc.. It will favor assistant coaches who are willing to work, long, long, long hours on communicating with their prospects. It will favor schools who are willing to hire very talented recruiting coordinators at likely hefty salaries. It will favor head coaches who are not only willing to work like a Turk at recruiting but who are willing to oversee an effort on the part of his staff, coaches and non-coaches alike, which maximizes the advantages created by the new NCAA rules.

Someone should hire the guy that made up Manti's girlfriend. He is a social media wizard. Apparently, very convincing as well.
