  1. Wasn’t sure where to post this but some bad news for him
  2. NCAA article Division I football teams will not have annual signing and initial counter limits for the next two academic years, the Division I Council decided Wednesday. Members issued a blanket waiver to allow schools to award scholarships based on the overall counter limit of 85. In the Football Championship Subdivision, the annual equivalency limit of 63 also remains in effect. The change is intended to address the impact of the one-time transfer exception in the sport and the extended seasons of competition students received due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. A short-term solution put in place last fall was scheduled to expire at the end of July. It allowed schools who lost student-athletes to replace seven of them if they left during specific time periods. "Some schools hadn't given out all their scholarships and felt constrained by the annual limit," said Council chair Shane Lyons, athletics director at West Virginia. "This temporary change provides schools more flexibility and adds opportunities for incoming and current student-athletes to receive aid." The Football Oversight Committee will collect and review recruiting data during these two years, as well as monitor transfer trends to inform potential future rule changes. Additionally, Football Bowl Subdivision conferences will no longer have requirements to annually exempt their conference championship game from the maximum number of games a team is allowed in a season. The Council also made it easier for FBS teams that play FCS opponents to allow the win to count toward its bowl eligibility. Council members reduced the financial aid requirement an FCS opponent needs to satisfy for a win to count toward the FBS team meeting the definition of "deserving team" for bowl eligibility. Instead of 90% of the maximum scholarships per year during a rolling two-year period, the requirement will be 80% of the maximum number of scholarships per year during that rolling two-year period. In 2020, the Council had granted a blanket waiver to allow the 80% requirement to be used. Additionally, the Council established an exception to the contest status rule for years when the number of deserving teams is smaller than the number of bowl opportunities. If not enough teams qualify under regular criteria, teams will be selected using the following conditions. All teams that meet the first condition must be selected prior to teams that meet the second condition, and so on. The conditions are: Schools that would have met the FCS opponent exception but for the fact that one victory was against an FCS opponent that had not met the required scholarship average per year during the previous rolling two-year period (and the team's waiver request was denied). A school that participated in 13 regular-season contests and finished the season with six wins and seven losses. A school in its final year of reclassification from FCS to FBS that meets other requirements. A school that finished its season with a minimum of five wins that count toward the definition of a "deserving team" and a maximum of seven losses but achieved a multiyear Academic Progress Rate that permits postseason participation. Alternates identified pursuant to this condition shall be identified as eligible in descending order based on the multiyear APR. If multiple teams have the same multiyear rate, the school with the highest single-year rate in the most recent reporting year shall be eligible first. A team identified as an alternate must declare whether it will participate in a bowl game. An alternate that declares an intention to participate shall select an available bowl game in which to participate. If a school is unable to participate in a bowl game after accepting a bid, the bowl entity shall select an alternate from among the remaining eligible schools. This model is similar to the blanket waiver that was approved for the 2021 season and to the legislation that expired in 2020, and it provides additional flexibility when teams are unable to participate in a bowl game after accepting a bid. Council members also voted to allow schools to begin official preseason football practices 31 days prior to their first game. The decision affords additional flexibility in the preseason without changing the acclimatization period or the 25 on-field practice limit prior to the first game, providing schools the opportunity to provide student-athletes additional rest time. Other legislative action Council members also adopted proposals that: Prioritize treatment and education over punishment for student-athletes who test positive for cannabinoids during NCAA championships. Increase from 23 to 25 the members of the Committee on Competitive Safeguards and Medical Aspects of Sport. Allow schools to provide recruiting materials and send electronic correspondence to women's basketball recruits beginning June 1 at the conclusion of the sophomore year in high school. Allow students who have graduated and are seeking a second undergraduate or equivalent degree access to any transfer exception that applies to undergraduate transfer student-athletes. Allow women's beach volleyball teams to participate in up to four multiple-day pairs tournaments during the nonchampionship segment and to eliminate the prohibition on missed class time and the restriction to ground transportation associated with the nonchampionship segment. Additionally, the Council voted to introduce into the legislative cycle a proposal that would make stunt an emerging sport for women.
  3. Well, ESPN may be wrong. Articles I have read say it is now unlimited for two seasons. The 32 limit was the change last year but now changed to unlimited. Guess we need clarification!
  4. Is there a certain date the 85 ship limit kicks in? Still have that cap
  5. I understand that but when did Dee Dad say that?
  6. That before Harsin brought in three QB transfers?
  7. AUBURN, Ala.—Auburn football has promoted wide receivers coach Eric Kiesau to offensive coordinator and defensive analyst Roc Bellatoni to edge linebackers coach and special teams coordinator, head coach Bryan Harsin announced Friday. The two have a combined 44 years of coaching experience, including 22 years of serving as coordinators. Harsin also has promoted secondary coach Zac Etheridge to Associate Head Coach. "One of the biggest things our players and program needs going from year one to year two with us is consistency - consistency with the system, the coaches and our plan for success," Harsin said. "Coach Kiesau and Coach Bellantoni are excellent football coaches and teachers of the game with 44 years of Division I experience between them, including 22 combined years in coordinator roles. Both have been part of the relationship building process over this past year here at Auburn, with the team and staff. They understand fully and are bought in on our goal and process." https://auburntigers.com/news/2022/2/18/auburn-football-promotes-kiesau-bellatoni-and-etheridge.aspx
  8. Why would any real OC join Harsin if they know he is calling plays? Just add Co-OC to Coach Kiesau and find an up and coming QB Coach and do same.
  9. Coach Kiesau was OC/QB at Boise for Harsin. The Offensive Analyst Bodie Reeder was as well at Utah St. I believe.
  10. Smoke going around some conferences want to drop divisions
  11. Does Ok St have CB Coach opening or would he go to Miami with his old DC Doug Belk??
  12. 247 reporting he will take over LB. Jeff Schmedding takes over DC. Continue to search for DL.
  13. I have seen Brian Mason hired as STC not DC so far
  14. So, looks to me he is gone whether to Ok St, ND or Miami
  15. Bruce Feldman just tweeted he is strong candidate
  16. Yes basically official Bruce Feldman tweeted it out
  17. Didn’t realize he took over so early in the season. Hopefully he recovers from his procedure and get to working out.
