It's clear that some of you don't agree but this IS a stupid rule.
But (as many have failed to point out) just because it's a stupid rule doesn't mean the solution is to break it and hope you don't get caught.
Lobby the NCAA, the university presidents, and the fans get the players behind you do ESPN interviews show them statistics to try to get the rule changed while you continue to enforce it. That's how you get rules changed.
This is something the Jim Tressels, SEC schools, and Jason Whitlocks of the world don't understand. Just because a rule might suck doesn't mean you ignore it. You need to go through the proper channels to change the rules or quit being a part of the organization. No one ever forced Tressel to be a college football coach and if he didn't like the rules he shouldn't have been one.
