| LSU Recruiting Board|| Is there evidence to settle the 2 vs 4 backcounting issue? - Indiana Tiger on 2/7/13 at 8:37 am|

New proposals opening up non coaching positions as recruiters and a loosening up of some of the more anal contact rules could lead to player personnel depts. I have no idea how likely they are to be adopted, but a lot of it makes sense. My guess is that they will make it more restrictive than sugges...

Doesn't really discuss 14, but has some key info:
[quote]As for when Texas A&M will move, the probable answer is soon but not imminent. If it were to join the SEC for the 2012-13 academic year, it would have to make the move by early fall in order for the move to be logistically feasible.
