Default Jordan Rogers blasts Vanderbilt on twitter

I think this can be classified as an epic rant, this can't help with recruiting at all, and is going to really take some good PR to fix.

And for the record,I do agree with him.

Do universities do this to be on the safe side of the NCAA or is it just a lack of common sense?

There has got to NCAA rules involved in this because it's not just Vanderbilt. Also, the facilities are supposed to be for current players. If they let anyone who ever played on the team used them, it would be awfully crowded.

Nothing to do with the NCAA unless its high school players. Schools have former players come back and train all the time.

That could be it.

It could also be a matter of Rodgers feeling that he and his class of players are mostly responsible for Vandy's (relative) success over the previous few years and should be allowed to take advantage of the facilities their on the field success helped improved.

If you used to be a member of the YMCA would they still let you workout there 2 years after you left?

If he was to hurt himself working out at their facility Vandy would be liable. This whole issue is just about liabilty and insurance.

So you think the liability insurance would not cover the school if it did something negligent and Rodgers was hurt because of it. Because Rodgers didn't pay a fee there would be no coverage?

If that is the case, the AD is certainly a bumbler. If his liability coverage is weak, he needs to shop for a new policy, not ban former players to avoid holes in the crappy insurance policy he bought.

If people had paid to come watch me work out and donated millions to the school because of my successful workouts, I'd expect to be able to come back later and work out in the new facility my workouts helped create.

Liability and insurance? So paying a $5 dollar rec fee somehow makes there be no liability and decreases insurance costs? Surely the school can eat the fee.

Well, there are a couple of obvious issues with your conclusion.

First, if VU's insurance states that the university gets a discount where the school mandates that a person pays to enter, as opposed to leaving the place open to the general public, VU pays less towards their insurance while also making money on the customer. Additionally, if someone is not considered covered under VU's policy where that person isn't a paying customer or student, VU could owe the costs associated with that person's injury while there.

Also, the school very well could have a policy, sign, or form that a person signs or reads upon paying the fee, thereby waiving VU's liability. The sign could say something like, "Paying the fee for entry indicates you have read the policies and rules in place at this facility."

Not sure how that concept is so far-fetched.
