The NCAA puts the kibosh on Tiger Prowl.
… The NCAA Division I Board of Directors finalized legislation Thursday effective immediately limiting no more than two football coaches per school from visiting a prospective recruit in the same day during an evaluation period, NCAA spokesman Erik Christanson confirmed by e-mail Thursday night.
The rule change takes direct aim at recruiters riding to high schools in stretch Hummer limousines, a controversial tactic Auburn coaches began last year.
You gotta love Gene Chizik’s response.
“All of the different recruiting ideas that we came up with last year, people want to ask the question what kind of effect did they have on recruiting?,” Chizik said. “I don’t know whether that’s something that played a huge part in our success with our signing class or not. … It’s all about how hard you work and it’s all about relationships.”
Riiight. That’s why you doubled down with a bus this year, Coach.
