Are they changing the rules, or putting out guidelines related to the rules? Boosters getting involved in recruiting has always been against the rules.
I agree boosters getting involved in recruiting is against the rules so I'm not sure what 'guidelines' are needed. It's a no-no. There have been reported instances of boosters offering players monetaryt if anything materializes. inducements to attend XYZ U or to transfer there. In those cases who gets the punishment and what should it be? The NIL as I understand it was intended for enrolled students not to buy a player to attend or transfer to a particular school. I realize that may be a distinction without merit, but now the landscape does have instances money being offered before enrollment. We'll see what, if anything transpires.

I agree, CH. It seems that the NCAA, as usual, was weak in enforcing the rules over the first several months, so now they are putting out guidelines to clarify that the rules still apply in this new shitty environment. I hope that they go after the offenders, but I am not confident that they will, because, well, they are the NCAA. That, and the risk of lawsuits given state laws.

This entire thing just boggles my mind. There is something to be said for a good player being a big fish in a smaller pond. If you are good the NBA will find you. Most all transfers do not go on and kill it in a bigger conference. My guess and it is my guess is that by mid-season Gator fans will be angry at Lofton for shooting too many 3s. Ha!
