Because the Sabans and Smarts of the college football world don’t have enough roster management flexibility already…

The NCAA is here to help.

I’m sure they’re going to pitch this as a boon for programs like Kansas that are still reeling from roster mismanagement from prior regimes, but an extra five schollies in one year isn’t going to fix that.  What this really enables is for coaches with loaded rosters to pick and choose in years when there’s a particularly rich crop of recruits to take in a few extra studs.

Saban’s already got a couple of analysts on the mother as you read this.

    There was a reason they tightened the strings initially. Did they forget their motive for doing so? So much for parity.

    I’d bet Kirby’s got an analyst on it too…

    Reads like a scheme Saban and Smart dreamed up over a beer. “OK, Kirby, this year you sign 30 studs and get the top rated recruiting class, next year it’s my time.”

    Clemson signed 30 last year. So I guess with the same back-counting, side-counting, whatever-counting rules, a coach could push it to 35 or 36?

    Kirby should be on this too. This is actually a way for the rich to get richer IMHO.

    Seems the more they tighten the strings the more the field fighting for the playoff shrinks.

    This will allow for even more processing. It will be even easier to push out and replace players not contributing enough.

    But remember folks, it’s about amateurism and academics.
