Is this surprising?


Exactly, I don't understand the response to this rumor. I have heard 100% of LSU fans say the same thing for 5 months.

It's a question of the language he used.

There are many ways to communicate the idea of folks going pro. I think that if I were a gump, I would have used the precise language he used.

The 3 lineman are morons if they leave early. They are going to be first round picks and national champs if they come back.

What? They can't meet with agents at all or that's a violation.
It's not a violation if they actually go into the draft, although perhaps it would make them ineligible for the bowl game.

All five have met with potential agents.

Meeting with them is not a violation. Signing with them, accepting gifts, etc means they are no longer eligible.

pretty sure you can have contact with an agent, just not sign with them and/ or receive benefits.

NCAA bylaws

Under NCAA Bylaw 12.3, a student-athlete (any individual who currently participates in or who may be eligible in the future to participate in intercollegiate sport) may not agree verbally or in writing to be represented by an athlete agent in the present or in the future for the purpose of marketing the student-athlete's ability or reputation. If the student-athlete enters into such an agreement, the student-athlete is ineligible for intercollegiate competition.

Also, a student-athlete may not accept transportation or other benefits from an athlete agent. This prohibition applies to the student-athlete and his or her relatives or friends.

The term "agent" includes actual agents, runners (individuals who befriend student-athletes and frequently distribute impermissible benefits) and financial advisors.

It is not a violation of NCAA rules if a student-athlete merely talks to an agent (as long as an agreement for agent representation is not established) or socializes with an agent. For example, a student-athlete could go to dinner with an agent and no NCAA violations would result if the student-athlete provided his own transportation and paid for his meal.

LOL

Chase Goodbread primarily covers the Southeastern Conference for College Football 24/7, and lives in Tuscaloosa, Ala. Previously, he covered Alabama football for The Tuscaloosa News and Tidesports.com. Unlike most, he appreciates low-scoring football, and the SEC often obliges.

Mass exodus sounds bad. I guess we aren't supposed to send kids to the NFL? That's one of LSUs biggest recruiting pitches. Seems like LSU staff has been holding up their end of the bargain.
