Honestly, good on them. 

Come on guys, this is a little ridiculous. We still have Shane Morris and Devin Asiasi on the roster. 

I don't understand what disadvantage we could possibly have for releasing a roster unless people are missing from the team that no one else knows about.

FOIA laws are premised on disclosing a public record; if the record hasn't yet been created, then it doesn't yet exist, and can't be produced. What a non story this "journalist" created

I was just thinking earlier today that we havent heard any tough talk from Rutgers since October 8, 2016.

Please let this be a reason for JH to try to score 70+ on them again this year.

This is a reporter in NJ that just wants attention. You can FOIA it if it doesn't exist.

And technically they don't EVER have to post heights and weights. It's just tradition that teams do it. But student-athletes have protection over that info, just like their grades, or their health...which also never HAS to be released.

Forget the concept of a competitive disadvantage when it comes to the roster. Any inconvenienced opponent -- or media member -- can take last season's roster plus the 2017 recruiting class and determine about 95 percent of the roster. This is about making life just a little extra difficult for everyone around Harbaugh. Except for his fellow millionaires.



So this article is about a guy bitching about having to do math. Carry on.

Can someone who read the article clarify what the reporter meant with the last sentence in that blurb? What does Harbaugh's wealth have to do with this, and who are the millionaires that are not being inconvenienced by this? Did Harbaugh send the roster to everyone on the millionaires listserv or something? I have so many questions, but, at the same time, refuse to give that article a click.

probably just download the 2016 one and add the 2017 class and remove seniors (obviously there will be injury red shirts, peppers, transfers, etc) but that would get you 99% of the way there. But problem-solving isn't for everyone. But then again why write an article about this?

to that request too.   here is some info on that:

  • Generally, schools must have written permission from the parent or eligible student in order to release any information from a student's education record. However, FERPA allows schools to disclose those records, without consent, to the following parties or under the following conditions (34 CFR § 99.31):

    • School officials with legitimate educational interest;
    • Other schools to which a student is transferring;
    • Specified officials for audit or evaluation purposes;
    • Appropriate parties in connection with financial aid to a student;
    • Organizations conducting certain studies for or on behalf of the school;
    • Accrediting organizations;
    • To comply with a judicial order or lawfully issued subpoena; 
    • Appropriate officials in cases of health and safety emergencies; and
    • State and local authorities, within a juvenile justice system, pursuant to specific State law.

Schools may disclose, without consent, "directory" information such as a student's name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, honors and awards, and dates of attendance. However, schools must tell parents and eligible students about directory information and allow parents and eligible students a reasonable amount of time to request that the school not disclose directory information about them. Schools must notify parents and eligible students annually of their rights under FERPA. The actual means of notification (special letter, inclusion in a PTA bulletin, student handbook, or newspaper article) is left to the discretion of each school.
