    A&M 33 Commits, UGA 30...I thought the limit was 25?

    Can anyone explain how A&M and UGA are going significantly over the SEC's self-imposed scholarship limit of 25 players annually?

    Thanks, RTR!

    uga only signed like 19 last year, so i think they can count at least 6 spots to the next class if those kids are EEs. dont know about a&m, but im guessing a similar situation.

    a&m also only signed 19 in 2012 cycle, dont know how they are going to justify more than 31, unless they have some guys committed who they know cant qualify. they still seem to be recruiting people.

    They should have room because they have a big senior class and a couple of possible early declarations. They should be able to back count some early enrollees and have room for the rest.

    UGA will have the room because of the number they have arrested. The Phulmer Cup has been renamed the Richt Cup.

    Much like our laws congress passes, just because it reads one way doesn't mean it has to work like that.

    Remember just becasue they signed 19 each last year does not mean all 19 counted towards the 2012 class. Some of those could have backcounted towards 2011. Meaning they very well could have room for more than 6 over this year. The only question really is how many can be EEs. You can only backcount if there is room to be an EE if I remember correctly with the new rule.

    It is still always funny to me that when Saban and Bama have so many recruits lined up to sign, other fan bases scream "CHEAT, CHEAT, CHEAT" even though we have the same situation and rules to go by that they do. However, when their coaches do it, it is just the way it is and justifiable.

    It's cool as long as we don't do it. So you know...

    I'm glad Uga is doing it, one less thing for their whiny fans to cry about.

    Depending on how the newer mid-year exemption rule is applied , there's the possibility of more hope than actual openings . We'll see .

    Personally I'm glad some SEC teams are pushing the limits of this stupid rule. If a Big 10 team, with their silly rule can sign 30 in a class why on earth can't SEC teams?
