Default Re: Article: New freshmen eligibility standards coming

Quote:
Some might think that this new rule could be asking too much from high schools and it could put a limit on recruiting for college coaches, but that's just silly. This rule is being put in place to make sure that student-athletes are better prepared academically for college. Asking kids to hit the books harder and study a little longer is far from a crime and chances are the higher standards will encourage schools to take the academic side of high school sports life more seriously.
So, you aren't gonna give them a stipend (pay for play or whatever verbiage you chose), and you're going make it more difficult academically. Call me cynical, but we don't live in a perfect world, and this will only encourage the detriment of amateurism. Minor league football here we come.
