There’s always a silver lining.

You may have heard about the plan to move the juco season to the spring.  That’s going to play havoc with recruiting, but there is one positive wrinkle to take out of it ($$).

One key benefit for FBS recruiters as the junior college football season moves to the spring: 3-for-2 recruits becoming 3-for-3 recruits. Junior college players who aren’t full qualifiers coming out of high school typically arrive at FBS programs with three years to play two seasons of eligibility. Now they’ll have three seasons in their new program.

Positive for the kids, at least.  Coaches are going to have to roster manage a little harder than before because of the extra year of eligibility.

    I wonder how that will play out with plug-and-play guys in what we assume to be a normal Fall 2021 NCAA season. Your’e talking about JUCO guys playing at least 9 games in the Spring (March-May?) and then, basically, turning around in June to work out and prepare to play another 12+ games from September-November. That’s a lot of wear and tear in one calendar year and I wonder if it affects how some JUCO guys are recruited.
