The NCAA's Division I Council approved the hiring of a tenth fulltime assistant football coach.  If approved by the Board of Governors on April 26th, the hiring would not go into effect until after the upcoming season.  Other rules changes up for final approval by the board include:

*Limiting FBS coaches to participating in camps and clinics to 10 days in June and July, and the camps must take place on a school's campus or in facilities regularly used by the school.

*Allowing coaches employed at a camp or clinic to have recruiting conversations with prospects.

*Prohibiting official visits from taking place in conjunction with a prospect's participation at a school camp or cli9nic.

*Requiring graduate students to complete six degree applicable hours each term to remain eligible.

The Council tabled a proposal that would have prevented coaches from offering scholarships to recruits before Sept. 1 of their junior and defeated a measure that would have made 12-game FCS schedules permanent.
 
Any thoughts?..............................................

The NCAA passed two new playing rules, while delaying another.

*Players are prohibited from jumping over offensive linemen to block a kick.
*The nameplate is now included in the horse-collar tackle 15-yard penalty.

As for the delayed rule, requiring players to wear kneepads and pants that cover knees will be implemented in 2018, instead of 2017. The reason? Equipment orders.
