BC guys evaluate Bates's tenure positively.

Mike Farrell just tweeted this about Hand's recruitment (yes, we are recruiting players not named Jabrill Peppers, just in case anyone forgot).
This is a definite shift from before, as for a while he seemed pretty set on VT leading us for his recruitment. And with Mike Farrell's annoying habit of being very accurate with his predictions, this bodes very well for us, giving us a great chance to get the #1 and #2 players in the nation (at least according to Rivals).
NCAA board of directors has decided to suspend the recent changes to football recruiting (rule changes related to unlimited text messages, printed materials, and unlimited contact.) (LINK)
The details are highlighted below:
At its meeting in Indianapolis on Thursday, the board adopted the March recommendations of the Rules Working Group after several of the proposals, designed to create a more meaningful and enforceable NCAA rule book, were met with widespread criticism by the college and high school coaching communities.
In March, Proposal 13-3 received more than 75 override requests from NCAA membership, mandating a review by the board.
• The remainder of Proposal 13-3, which would have allowed for unlimited contact initiated by college coaches to recruits.
• Proposal 11-2, which called for the elimination of the requirement that only a head coach or assistant coach could perform the functions of a recruiting coordinator.
• Proposal 13-5-A, which would have removed restrictions on printed materials mailed to prospects.
The decisions Thursday do not affect basketball.
Personally, I think this is great - for the recruits and their family, and recruiting in general. It would have been insane for both coaching staffs, recruits, high school coaches, and the NCAA to monitor/enforce.
fergodsakes, 75 schools opposed to rule change.
Ok, I'm tired of every thread becoming the debate over this RDT/WolverineInaBag conspiracy. The EuroCup Thread and Jordan Wilkins visiting thread have already fallen, I'm sure more will too if there isn't an outlet. So for all that care, and those that don't HAVE AT IT!
Hope the MODS don't take it down, but maybe all you can get it out of your system now, you can post all your "research" on how they are connected or not.
Since December, I have been watching highlight tapes of the top recruits of this class. I have been able to get through about 500 before I decided to finish my rankings, and publish this. For obvious reasons, I am unable to watch all of the recruits 15-20 minutes highlight tapes, however I got through at least 5 minutes of all Now I encourage questions about why I ranked prospects where I did, and I tried my best to keep all bias aside. Thank you and attatched is the link.
