He doesn't like most of the new rule changes in college football which many feel level the recruiting playing field for northern schools. He doesn't like the rule changes which were put in place to allow for more fall camp since 2-a-days are now prohibited.
“There’s quite a few that I don’t like,” Fedora said from the Westin in Charlotte, N.C., according to Scout. “I don’t like the fact that now guys can take official visits for eight months of the year. I do not like that. I do not like guys taking official visits in April, May and June. I don’t like that this [event] started this week and not a week later. That cut into another week of my vacation. What I’m getting to there is now they’ve backed camp up so you can go on the 27th, so now we’ve moved football into July. Now they’re talking about going to a 14-week schedule, so who’s going to say that’s not going to go another week earlier so you can get your guys prepared?
Poor guy, lost out on a week of vacation because of ACC Media Day for his job that pays him multiple millions of dollars. He should've called up Hugh Freeze and they could've had a family double date vacation earlier this month. They could've sat around the bonfire and cooked up some burgers, ribs, and their next institutional scandal.
Here's another breakdown of the rule changes...
Among the college football rule changes for 2017:
- There are now two signing periods. In 2017, players will have their first opportunity to officially sign from Dec. 20-22.
- Extended recruiting season that lengthens the period for official visits to April 1 of the prospect’s junior high school season.
- Teams are allowed 10 assistant coaches starting Jan. 9, 2018.
- Two-a-day practices during training camp are banned. If teams practice twice per day, the extra session must be a film study, walkthrough without pads or conditioning.
- Teams were allowed to request training camp to begin in July if the ban on two-a-day practices disrupted their schedule.
