I know they at least get a stipend while being housed.
|14 weeks 2 days ago||NLI||
The NLI (binds institution to the recruit and the recruit to the institution) cannot be signed as of today. That ship has sailed.....but a prospect can sign a grant-in-aid (binds an institution to a recruit but not the recruit to the institution) at any time. If Malik is 18 he could sign the grant-in-aid today, tomorrow or on August 14th. Whenever.
I do not know the ins and outs of this, but I'm not sure why Malik just can't sign the grant-in-aid. Maybe he needs his mom to sign FAFSA paperwork or something else?

Jim Bob has been newsworthy in the past: http://www.govolsxtra.com/news/2009/jul/01/former-vol-cooter-arrested-burglary-charges/
|22 weeks 9 hours ago||My understanding....||
First, signing some sort of agreement with non-NCAA schools has no bearing on an NCAA NLI. So, take the JUCO signing out of the equation. I actually recommend to high school prospects that are struggling academically to sign both an NCAA and JUCO agreement. That way they are covered if they fail to qualify.
Second, it is my understanding that whichever NLI was signed first is the valid NLI. There is a spot of the NLI next to the signatures (prospective student-athlete and parent/guardian) for the date and time of the day. If both NLIs have the same time then I have no idea what will happen.

It is NLI, not LOI. I'm just trying to inform not be Picky McPickerson.
|30 weeks 8 hours ago||If institutions pay....||
If institutions pay student-athletes you will see much more of this happening:
The resources just aren't there for over 90% of Division I athletic departments. The effect will be discontinuing athletic programs. This leads to taking away opportunites for student-athletes which is contradictory to the initial purpose.
|30 weeks 1 day ago||Wrong||
Devin Gardner received a Hardship Waiver, not a redshirt.
|30 weeks 3 days ago||The argument never made...||
This argument is never made:
How much Devin Gardner had pulled in if he was the quarterback at Arkansas State? How much if he was at Eastern Michigan?
|31 weeks 1 day ago||Depends on a lot||
It really depends on a lot. The biggest factor: was the student-athlete deemed a qualifier or non-qualifier out of high school. If it is a qualifier (meet certain academic criteria such as the 2.0 and 2.3 core GPA mentioned above) then it is easier to transfer to a four-year institution and be eligible for competition immediately. Non-qualifiers have to graduate (Associate's Degree) to gain immediate eligibility when transferring to a four-year institution.
After that it depends on several factors which deal with credit hours, GPA and enrolled full-time semesters.
|31 weeks 1 day ago||Clarifications||
- The new two-year transfer eligibility requirements take effect for any student-athlete who enrolled in college full-time after August 1, 2012.
|40 weeks 2 hours ago||????||
A full athletics scholarship grants a student-athlete housing and 19 meals a week. 99% of the time that's what they get. Along with medical care, training table meals, extra educational help, etc.
If the individual's family did not have enough money then he most likely met the qualifications for a Pell Grant. Pell Grants are usually around $5,000.
|40 weeks 6 days ago||What if? Then a lot of other||
What if? Then a lot of other student-athletes would lose their opportunity to participate in college athletics while getting an education. Extrapolate this over the country and you are talking tens of thousand that will miss these opportunities.

I don't remember the exact date but I don't think the Mormon church allowed African-American members until the late 1970s.

Sorry, no name plate but they are using his name.
|50 weeks 1 day ago||When this happens...||
When this happens will it be an NCAA violation? He will be giving money (illegal benefit) to a student-athlete.
|51 weeks 6 days ago||I was there....||
I was present yesterday during this.
The camp starts around 5:00 each year on Thursday, but before it starts all the counselors (college QBs) work with Peyton and Eli for a couple hours. There are about 40 college WRs, RBs and TEs that they throw to. Jacob Hester (Broncos) and Chase Clement (Giants) were also present. There were a couple other NFL guys I think but it was hard to tell who was who. Some of the guys get in throughout Thursday night so more will come.
|1 year 2 days ago||Clarification||
I was wondering if I could get clarification. Does Hernandez appear as:
If it is the latter then this decision could have some major impact on the O'Bannon case.
I have no idea how he appears in the game but wanted to know if anyone else did.

Excuse me, it is call "CoFoPoff."
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Sleeves not the jerseys....||
It is not the jerseys that are appalling, it is the sleeves. Without the sleeves those jerseys would be fine.
|1 year 19 weeks ago||Fads are awesome||
You guys got it all wrong. FADS ARE AWESOME!!!! You should hear all the compliments I get on my double bicep barb wire tattoos. Sometimes I wear bibs with one strap undone and no shirt underneath. People get so jealous.

|1 year 21 weeks ago||Real GF||
But does he have a real girlfriend? I am skepitical of all Hawaiin recruits.
|1 year 21 weeks ago||Problem with current rules...||
I love this idea. I am a proponent of the FCS/FBS games because of the economic impact it has on FCS athletic programs (cross country, tennis, etc.). These guarantee games have a major impact on FCS athletic deparment budgets.
The probem is that there aren't enough FCS teams currently eligible to play FBS schools. An FCS school must maintain an average of 57.6 football scholarships yearly in order to play an FBS school.
Rework the legislation!
|1 year 22 weeks ago||Some omissions...||
You are forgetting one obligatory aspect of Disney movies: over coming racial tension.
P.S.: I hope #12/1 has a real girlfriend.
|1 year 26 weeks ago||Hoke and Recruiting Points||
Hoke should use some of his weekly recruiting points to try and get him to stay.
Also, he should use some on Stefon Diggs.
