Fall Sports Eligibility Update


Recommended Posts

This makes zero sense and is going to create a complete cluster f*ck financially and with roster management for smaller programs.  Allowing seniors to be exempt for one year without making any long term changes to scholarship limits only solves things for one year.  Let's say none of our players leave after this season, not exactly something that is extremely far fetched for most G5 schools.  So after a season where we already have significantly reduced revenue we now have to pay for the same number of scholarships as this season + about 25 additional to account for the 2021 recruiting class.

Then look ahead to after next season..since nobody loses a year of eligibility we somehow have to figure out how to find about 20 spaces on our roster.  Are we just supposed to bring in 5 players in the 2022 class to account for this??

These rules make sense for the spring sports that got cancelled because they usually only bring in 3-5 new scholarships a year and it's a lot easier to manage.  At every opportunity so far the NCAA has absolutely dropped the ball and shown they have no idea what they are doing and this just continues that trend.

If there is one thing sports has taught me, it's that there is always one more guy out there, with one more pile of cash, just waiting to make something work.

What would you suggest that would be fairer to the players?

The only solution is to make changes to scholarship limits. I understand where this decision is coming from, because the 2 options are to change scholarship limits and have to deal with the impact of that for years, or have one year where you screw over some high school players and the G5 schools.  From the NCAA's perspective this is the easy choice and really doesn't do much harm to the schools that bring in the most money for them because they'll still be losing most of the draft eligible players they already planned to and won't have to significantly change their recruiting plan.

I support the rule change and I'm on the player's side, but there has to be some way of doing things where a majority of the schools out there don't get screwed over.

If a school wants to limit the number of scholarships just don’t offer as many and pull some existing scholarships. Just because NCAA says you can have 100 players doesn’t mean we have to. No players want to sit on the bench. I can’t see any other options. Now what do you do with the student population and their scholarships?
