    I'm having some difficulty with understaning the rule that LSU supposedly broke. The kid signs a financial aid agreement. The NCAA allows them and specifically allows schools that have those agreements in place to have additional access to the recruit. But if that kid decides to go someplace else, all that extra access is deemed illegal?

    :wtf:

    That's messed up.

    It sounds like this was a pre-emptive measure by the SEC since the NCAA is going to be changing rules soon.

    Some schools used it as a recruiting loophole outside the spirit of what it was intended -- basically, for a kid who was going to graduate HS early that he and his parents would be able to be better prepared for entering college & team life in January. It turned into (for some schools): "Just sign the financial aid agreement with us. It's not binding on you, but allows you to lock in your spot early and get some extra access to things" as a way to get a leg up on competition with extra contact for recruiting a kid who wasn't really committed.

    Correct, Nik. You could also see schools magically have early enrollees suddenly changing their minds at the last minute to make numbers work.

    Are you suggesting the recruit didn't willfully change his mind to Alabama, but was de-recruited by LSU after signing the agreement?

    It seems the obvious solution is to scrap the ability to sign any aid agreement (or at least not change the access rules) if there is no letter of intent. I'm kind of with Sacky in that this is a really bizarre set of rules.

    Not suggesting that at all. What Nik says is probable-they signed a player not really all that committed to a FAA so they could have more access to prevent him from flipping. Hardly innocent victims here.

    Will this ruling in any way impact the smell of corndogs?

    probably not, but could lead to at least one less of these types on this earth.....ie, less LSU victories, less drunken swamp orgies, you get my drift.
