Is for the ncaa to institute a early signing period for 2015. Just like BB it will end all this mess or at least some of it. Most coaches want it too. With the AFCA convention in indianapolis next year I look for something like this to happen.
Its time for a change.
I agree. It would cut the insanity by 50%.
Could see this happening BH
Agree with you
I still think all the Big Fish would NOT sign early..You'd have to be very sure about the kid qualifying as well..

Bh I have read your posts for years dating back to my scout days, and I have thought about the pros and cons of the early signing period.
It depends on the meaning of early signing period. Does it mean that if you are verbaled early you will sign early, or is it if you are verbaled early you do not have to sign early. Say you have 15 kids verbaled to you in November and that is when the period is and 14 sign but one guy who is a 5 star superstar says I will wait till Feb, so the world can see me. How does a coach view that?
I believe one con would be guys like Brendan Douglas. In a early signing period we do not have him as an option. Also if you have a kid who is ify with grades and he is verbaled early do you say no wait till Feb because you ship is based on you performance in the class room. If this semester looks good then we will take you in Feb.
Many things would have to be ironed out

While that would help something needs to be done to level the playing field. Maybe that will never happen b/c each school holds itself to their own standards, see our drug policy vs Auburn's, but it's unfair when one school can offer scholly's to a recruits sister, girlfriend, etc and another school refuses to do so. Or when one school offers a job to a kids coach / mentor and another school refuses to do so. Both examples seem out of the NCAA's prosecution yet some institutions are fine with this while others are not. The business of college football has become too big not to institute common rules for every school and take it out of the school president's discretion.
