Proposal: 2010-17 What's it mean: In football, the previous limit of two graduate assistants will be increased to four graduate assistants. When does it take affect: August 1, 2012. Proposal: 2010-59-C What's it mean: Any player who doesn't pass nine hours (or eight quarter hours) in the fall, shall not be eligible to play in the first four games of the following season. The player may regain eligibility for the third and forth game by completing 27 hours (or 40 quarter hours) before the next fall term. The player may regain his eligibility for all four games once during his five years of playing eligibility by completing the 27 hours (or 40 quarter hours) When does it take affect: August 1, 2011. Tabled Proposal: 2010-18-C-1 What it is intended to do: Limit of nine non-coaching staff members, including clerical staff, director of operations, video coordinator, quality control people, player development staff and director of community relations. Any full time student (graduate or undergraduate) who supports the football program shall be exempt. Proposal: 2010-26-3 What it is intended to do: Maintain the current restrictions on athletes in advertisements but opens things up for them to appear in school, charitable, educational or non-profit promotions. It also adjusts the language so there's no distinction between doing this during the season or during the offseason. http://college-football-blog.blogs.cbssports.com/mcc/blogs/entry/24156338/28498134 ********************* I like what passed. Tightened up the academics so that guys have to take a somewhat real course load during the season in order to be eligible the following season. Doubled the number of grad assistants to 4. Both rules make a lot of sense.
