    I'm betting the wind off Lake Michigan can be biting in November.

    Looks like Texas has no problem navigating the new terrain of football recruiting.;)

    Geez...it looks like they have more end zone seats than sideline views. That's just wrong.

    Wow, the local Lamborgini dealer makes almost as much as the Longhorn QB.

    This is a clip from an article on a kid the Irish are recruiting as a P/K. Suggested that the NCAA is going expand the number of scholarships and eliminate walk-ons.

    I'm thinking, great all those walk-ons will get paid, but how does that impact Title IX? I am thinking the Portal will be even more Chaotic. Sure it will be nice to not have to turn away a player(s) because you have hit the 85 player limit

    But I am skeptical about it.


    The Notre Dame coaches explained what coming to South Bend as a preferred walk-on would entail and why there’s a good chance that could change.

    “They also explained the new rules that are going to be coming up in the next year,” said Schmidt. “They said that there probably won't be any more walk-ons and there's going to be a high chance for scholarship.

    “(The NCAA) is thinking about changing the roster. It could change to anything, but people are predicting that it'll go to about 100 or maybe even 110 scholarships and then they might just not allow walk-ons, so everyone's on the scholarship.”
