The widely discussed rule changes that would have allowed for unlimited texting and mailing to recruits appear to have been killed, apparently in large part due to the B1G's opposition. EDIT: I got it wrong, the provision allowing for unlimited contact still seems to be in place but other rule changes pertaining to who can contact recruits and what types of materials can be sent were shot down.
The article notes that the rule changes could still pop back up at some point in the future, but if they did, it sounds like major modifications would be neccessary. The rule allowing for unlimited texting/mailing was the worst of the three in my opinion so why it survived is beyond me.
P.S. I'm not trying to set any sort of personal record for posts in one day, but after waiting a couple hours after the article was posted on CBSsports.com in hopes that someone else would link to it, I've given up. It is a pretty important story and board worthy IMO.
