    Has Butch Jones and the Vols Found a Loophole in the Recruiting Rules?

    Link

    As his post points out, academically eligible student-athletes who enroll in January are now allowed to sign aid agreements with universities as early as Aug. 1.

    What does this mean?

    According to Woodbery, the Vols had players sign aid agreements last month. He writes, "By the letter of the law, those players wouldn't count against the SEC's signing limit. They're freebies, if you will."
    "I don't know what class is but I can tell when one has it, you can tell from a mile away"

    (In an old southern trailer park redneck beer in hand marlboro light in other and camoflauge cutoff shorts man's voice) If a tablet was good enough for Moses and the 10 Commandments then by god they are good enough for my children in school today!!!!!!!

    I hope so! That signing limit is stupid, and I believe Saban has already had some players sign an aid agreement, right?

    Agree that the signing limit is stupid. To go even further, the 25/85 limits are stupid and hurt student athletes in the name of "parity".

    That said, if he tries to do something just because the rules don't strictly prohibit it when the spirit of the rule is clear, I would bet on a punishment.

    No they will still count against the 25. They will still sign an loi and still count. This is what happens when people who aren't in any kind of know try to figure out how "the numbers are gonna work". They start making stuff up, guessing and writing about it.

    I still contend that the total roster should be 125.

    My belief is that if you are allowed 25 signees a year, you should be allowed 100 on your total roster. Seems logical to me.

    The casual college football fan won't be shocked if Alabama is a ten-win type of team again simply because of the brand name, Alabama is supposed to be good,

    No one is going to have a parade for an Alabama team that comes up short of a championship
