    I dont follow recruiting, so I dont mean this tread to be about this kid, but about the fact they recruited the moment they could, at 12:01am!

    "Relentless recruiters"

    A buddy of mine is an offensive analyst inside the Clemson program and he said it best, "College football has become 100% about recruiting. Get the big talent in and worry about trying to coach them and all the other stuff once they get here. But if you can't get them you've already lost". I agree 1000%.

    NCAA to amend recruiting rules to prevent contact between 10 pm and 9 am.
    Other changes being made....eliminating the downfield cut block rule and elimination of the chop block rule inside the tackle box.
    Also defensive holding of offensive lineman to be a focused enforcement in 2019. ;)

    it's a welcome change but beware - some fans are going to accuse you of poopin' on the previous 'regime'.

    while I agree with your post and your friend, I really wonder if this really is any different now than what it was 40-50 years ago? the top teams have always had the best talent.

    I also hear that the ACC is changing their scheduling system, so that no program can request their bye to fall in the week before a particular conference opponent...

    I think the had that already.....my list was meant as a joke about the NCAA targeting rules that hurt Tech.

    Hopefully it pays off, it hasn't yet, but it's only been a week or so with a full staff. Next year is when the payoff better start happening.

    He reported accurately, but got dragged on social media by UT fans who misunderstood what he was reporting. They thought he was being a PR flack. They still troll him

    It shows that fan bases have knotheads, more than anything about his writing

    meh that was more just tongue in cheek to Animal. I'm not aware of promising any new emojis? Given what we have at our disposal, it'd be unnecessary and thus illogical. :vulcan:

    No, it really hasn't changed that much. Dodd could get good players out of every state in the South especially Florida. Lenny Snow was from Florida, Craig Baynam was from South Carolina, Larry Morris was from Mississippi, Don Toner was from Alabama etc. That is one of the reasons why the Mississippi schools hated him so much was that he was forever getting one or two of the best players out of Mississippi. Atlanta and the nationwide recognition of Tech were the draws. One difference might be the lopsided nature of who is getting the absolute top level talent. It is pretty much limited to elite of college football: Alabama, UGA, Clemson, Ohio State, Florida, FSU, USCw, Texas, Texas A&M, Oklahoma etc. with 50 or so second tier schools scrambling for leftovers.

    This is definitely different than the way things were done at Tech in the past. Honest question: Is this unusual for other schools? Is Kirby Smart visiting recruits at midnight?
