Now, I don't know the contact rules during the spring break period. I'd imagine Michigan cannot initiate contact with these recruits but the recruits can initiate contact with Michigan. Is that correct? I'd be interested to read what people's takes are on this deal as it relates to recruiting. Saban wants the NCAA to create a rule against teams practicing during spring break. Of course, he wants that rule to keep the likes of Michigan away from the southeast (Florida) recruiting grounds. Michigan, OTOH, is obviously taking advantage of the rules under the guise of spring practice to both reward his players with a paid spring break to Florida as well as a not too subtle recruiting advantage over everyone else. To me, this is another case of the "haves", the "NCAA 1 percenters" sticking it to the "NCAA middle class."
