NCAA working group recommends suspending beloved Fathead Rule
The NCAA’s Rules Working Group has recommended the suspension of a couple high-profile new rules; we have highlighted the one that pertains particularly to those of us in the blogging community:
The working group members will recommend:
• Prop. No. RWG-11-2, which eliminated the definition of recruiting coordination functions that must be performed only be a head or assistant coach, be suspended until appropriate modifications can be made. The concept will be considered as the membership ponders its approach to non-coaching personnel.
• Prop. No. RWG-13-5-A, which eliminated restrictions on printed materials sent to prospects other than general correspondence, be suspended to allow for a broader discussion of the rule.
Yup. Shed a vinyl-scented tear, friends and neighbors: The Fathead Rule is on hold.
Steve spurrier Jr.'s plan to send Gamecock recruits Fatheads, which would have been perfectly legal under new rules, on hold for now.—
