I still think it's stupid. For every example of someone abusing the practice for a recruiting advantage (looking at you Harbaugh) there's five where the off-the-field position is an actual entry level position for a high school coach into college coaching. Clemson's new Safeties coach Mickey Conn spent a year as a defensive analyst, Georgia's RB and former Georgia Southern interim HC Dell McGee started as an analyst at Auburn, Olten Downs, current Safeties coach at Georgia Southern started as a quality control coach at UGA.

All this is doing is limiting the opportunities for coaches to advance in their careers. Stupid rule.

Our defensive line coach started in a quality control position at Arkansas after being a high school coach. Rule might have kept him out because UArk signs kids from his high school regularly. Then again it might not have. When Blake Anderson interviewed for the AState job after the 2012 season he listed the guy as someone he wanted for an on-field coach. Anderson didn't get the gig and the guy took a quality control spot. Year later, Anderson gets hired and hires him so it might have prevented him from starting his college career by a year but not stopped him from moving up.

Is it fair? No. Do I remember the question? No. My default on fairness questions will always be a solid "no"
