There's a bit more to it but this website outlines the new requirements: http://www.ncaa.org/static/2point3/
It is an NCAA site. The new rules were passed before the high school class of 2016 ever stepped foot in high school.
|03/04/2015 - 10:57am||Cost-of-Attendance||
It isn't actually a stipend. Student-athletes will be able to get up to the cost-of-attendance. I'm not trying to argue semantics but cost-of-attendance figures have some federal aid implications. The cost-of-attendance figures can vary from institution to institituion, while also varying within an institution. It is not uncommon to have five or more cost-of-attendance figures at one institution. I believe Texas Tech has six.
One doesn't have to extrapolate too much to realize institutions will be able to toy with the parameters of specific cost-of-attendance figures on campuses to keep up with one another.

Still my favorite David Wilson quote is:
|08/01/2014 - 12:01pm||The rule....||
This rule actually is designed to help student-athletes. If you only have to take six credit hours to graduate then you only have to take the six hours. The rule has been changed a little few times, but instead of making a student-athlete take an additional six (or nine, ten, etc.) hours just to be full-time the rule lets a student-athlete takes only those classes needed for graduation. Are there times when student-athletes' schedules look like a joke? Yes, but it is designed to help:
184.108.40.206.3 Final Semester/Quarter
|06/27/2014 - 11:26am||At least...||
I know they at least get a stipend while being housed.
|04/01/2014 - 9:45am||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?
|02/10/2014 - 3:34pm||He has been newsworthy...||
Jim Bob has been newsworthy in the past: http://www.govolsxtra.com/news/2009/jul/01/former-vol-cooter-arrested-burglary-charges/
|02/06/2014 - 9:56am||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.
|02/05/2014 - 9:58am||NLI||
It is NLI, not LOI. I'm just trying to inform not be Picky McPickerson.
|12/12/2013 - 10:31am||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.
|12/11/2013 - 11:36am||Wrong||
Devin Gardner received a Hardship Waiver, not a redshirt.
|12/09/2013 - 10:44am||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?
|12/04/2013 - 4:42pm||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.
|12/04/2013 - 11:21am||Clarifications||
- The new two-year transfer eligibility requirements take effect for any student-athlete who enrolled in college full-time after August 1, 2012.
|10/03/2013 - 5:15pm||????||
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.
|09/27/2013 - 9:38am||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.

When this happens will it be an NCAA violation? He will be giving money (illegal benefit) to a student-athlete.
|07/12/2013 - 9:59am||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.
|07/08/2013 - 4:34pm||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."

It is not the jerseys that are appalling, it is the sleeves. Without the sleeves those jerseys would be fine.
|02/27/2013 - 11:16am||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.

But does he have a real girlfriend? I am skepitical of all Hawaiin recruits.
|02/13/2013 - 12:04pm||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!
|02/06/2013 - 12:44pm||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.
|01/09/2013 - 12:52pm||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.

That is an NCAA violation. Richt did this recently at Georgia.

Denard scores 16 TDs and An Iowa assistant coach talks to the scoreboard operator and he feels bad for them.

The NCAA takes weighted Core GPA at a lot of these schools. I have come across several of these schools in Florida.
|08/06/2012 - 4:33pm||Practice has started||
We will see how the NCAA handles this now that practice has started.

Not only did you get some serious savings, but what about all that DNA you got?
|07/25/2012 - 4:05pm||Passion||
I hear you and I add passion to the argument. Guys who didn't step foot on one country's soil until their 20s can't have the same passion for a country that a natural born citizen can.*
*There can be exceptions. I know Luol Deng has stated multiple times that he has a large amount of respect for being able to wear the England/Great Britain uniform. His family was exiled for politically reasons.
|07/25/2012 - 9:50am||Soccer||
Don't ever watch soccer then. There are guys from all over who play for countries they never stepped foot in until their 20s.
Also, see Chris Kaman in the 2008 Olympics.

|07/02/2012 - 11:27am||Nbadraft.net article||
A few years ago, nbadraft.net had an article about many NBA players are actually worth a max deal. I don't remember the hard figures but I believe it said that there are less than 10 players at any time that deserve a max deal. The criteria of wins, people in the seats, tv exposure, merchandise, etc. It was very interesting.
And yes, Hibbert's deal is exactly the reason the owners locked out the players.
|06/28/2012 - 9:31am||There is no way...||
There is no way you can play professional football and basketball. If your team makes it to the Super Bowl then you would miss over half of the NBA season. This is why two sport athletes usually play football and baseball, football and track...nowadays anyway.
Speaking of other anomalies: Charlie Ward
|06/25/2012 - 2:34pm||From what I understand....||
From what I understand (and I may be wrong), after McQueary told JoePa and Sandusky was "retired" he still brought kids around. I believe as recently as 2008 he had kids at practice.
People turned their hands instead of stepping in.
