So, i guess at some point, someone said we could sign 28 as long as we enrolled only 25 come august 1st? does that still hold?
ill set aside my opinions about the ncaa allowing schools to knowingly oversign in a scenario where all 28 kids may actually qualify (what do you do then?).
then at one point, someone said the class could actually goto 29? this was the witty signing, the extra player being allowed to count against last years class. 25(28)+witty(29)? how does this work???
a couple clarifications on this point. were we supposedly being allowed to count ONE player against last years class because after walkon ships and on-time graduates we came in at 84 players on ship? seems hard to believe since i thought we were closer to 70 actually scholarship recruits on the roster.
which brings me to my next question... since we signed enrolled 21 kids last year, could we have counted up to FOUR kids back to last year? ie, would that have allowed us to sign 25(28) this year PLUS 4 more kids, for a potential 32 player class?
i always thought the big10 'sign 28 rule' INCLUDED the backsigning kids, ie 25 kids and up to 3 you could count back.
obviously, im a confused person. can someone help me with the real numbers? with witty and drake likely out, it seems like we're at 23 right now? with drake out, the likely number of qualifier ratio goes up.
so if youre going to assume all will qualify (still maybe not the case? kinard/ash?). how many can we really sign? is it 25? is it 26 because we're allowed to count one back? to not confuse the situation, id rather not assume one of the current 23 will greyshirt. i dont even want to go there yet.
HELP ME UNDERSTAND!!!
Thanks in advance
