Does anybody know how this is handled? Maybe FlaBuff or Wyo Buff?
If you play football, you can't be a scholarship athlete in another sport. You can walk on in both, of course, but if you are scholarship track you can't play football without switching to a football scholarship. The NCAA doesn't wan't anybody evading the football scholarship limits by having a bunch of guys being on scholarships in other sports and then playing football. I think it works the same way with basketball too.
That makes sense. Okay, now does anyone know how Ronald Curry, Tony Gonzales, Bo Jackson, and other multi-sport stars in "major" sports were handles in terms of scholarship count?
Same deal with Bo, Curry, et al. They all had football scholarships only, which is the only way the NCAA lets you do it, as indicated by BuffsRising.
Tony Gonzales played both basketball and football. Somebody got an advantage there. Probably the basketball team.
i wonder if he "counted" against both bb and fb schollie limits? that would be the worst of both worlds...
He counted against football and football only.
House Guest would have only counted for basketball if he never got into a game. Once he was in a game, the scholli counted towards football.
Did Rodell actually play in a football game? He was a great guy. Interned at my bank. The SVP would always come around and say "Hey there, House!"
So once he played a down of football, his scholarship automatically became a football scholarship?
Wasn't he on the field goal block? I might be wrong, cause I remember wondering why we didn't have more blocks with him on the team.
Sucks that schools have abused scholarships and now we have retarded rules that penalize schools with duel athletes. Wish the NCAA had real oversight instead of just broad stroke bureaucracy.
Academic scholarships still can override the rule right?
Nope. You can't use an academic scholarship for football players.
