Yesterday the NCAA Board of Directors announced new rules for football and basketball players to take effect next season...

Football players could be suspended for up to four games, starting in 2012, if they fail to earn at least nine credit hours in the fall semester -- or eight on a quarterly system.

Basketball players must decide before the first day of the spring signing period, typically mid-April, to pull out of the draft and retain their college eligibility. This year, players have until May 8 to withdraw from the draft.
Although the players might not see it, these rules are put in place to help them and not hurt them. The college game, especially basketball, is suffering from players jumping after one year.
