GA, haven't you been reading my posts?!.
It doesn't seem anyone really has the new rules figured out. Some think they do(I did at one time but they're just too damn confusing. Thanks Mike Slive) but I have yet to see any consensus on exactly how they work. I do know that backcounting is still allowed but not sure how or who is eligible. The new initial counter timeline also throws a wrench in the program. We should definitely be able to have a better understanding after this class signs since it appears we will definitely be over 25. As luck would have it though, we'll likely end up with only 25 actually signing and keep us confused for another year. I've got a UGA guy helping me follow how their class counts, so that may help us decipher the code. They're definitely taking more than 25, maybe more than 30.
