Dear god. What is his title - Assistant Head Coach in charge of violating NFL Rules?
They already kept McDaniels for that job....

TrueDat. Maybe TG is Quality Control for Rules Violations?

He is the guy who will make sure the lid is tightly on the garbage can.

Will he be inside the can?

Or maybe after the first redshirt year, offer a 4-year scholarship continuation to cover those years after the decision is made to redshirt. Yes, nobody does it, but it's certainly within the rules to do it.

Not sure if a player would choose to take it, and what other stipulations you could put in there (to allow a medical career ender to get moved to a different type of scholarship), but if it's really a big deal, there are options, instead of following the year-to-year scholarship award model that's used.

That said, the graduate transfer rule likely would override that possibility to lock someone in. And that transfer rule isn't going anywhere - in fact, based on leaked proposals, any changes likely will reduce a school's ability to restrict or interfere with transfers that meet certain reasonable conditions.

the reason that will not work is that scholarships used to be 4-5 yrs and there wasn't a limit on how many kids you could sign and have on scholarship. well the big schools were signing 50 kids a year and having teams of like 200. they were signing kids just keep other schools from having them and possibly beating them with those kids. ncaa basically said this isn't right and moved to the 85 scholarships and you can only sign 25 in a year with only year to year scholarships. another thing was that schools were complaining because they were legally bound to provided 4-5yrs worth of education to those kids who may have left for the nfl or decide they don't want to play football anymore but want the degree. there was a lot of money being "wasted" by the schools, in the schools opinion. it'll never go back to offering 4-5 yr guaranteed scholarships, it'll always be year to year, too much power in the kids hands...schools can't have that, they must hold all the cards at all times.

I just noticed that the roster includes nine walk ons. That is the most I can remember this decade. Did admissions make changes to accepting more athletes as walk-ons recently?
