Five to Play Five

CFR nods in approval.

"...I wish we would make this five years [to play] five years. It would be a lot fairer to the kids and make a lot more sense for college football."

Count [Virginia Tech coach Frank] Beamer among those Division I-A coaches helping promote such a change in NCAA eligibility rules. Currently, athletes have five years for four seasons of eligibility.

"There's been a movement here for about three years, and, hopefully, it's a topic out there again," Beamer said. "There are no negatives to it. You're in a situation where you play a kid and then, when you're making decisions a lot of times, you're expecting this kid to continue at a certain rate so he gets playing time down the road, and there's just a lot of unknowns. So I'm hoping we do what's right for college football ... and what's right for the kids, too."

Whoever's in charge, NCAA, coaches rules committee... whoever: make it happen!

I just don't think their offense has been that impressive. They are loaded with talent and Meyer STILL doesn't know if he can pull of his spread option offense. I think this is an offense without an identity. Also, no one is coming out undefeated from the SEC this year. It's just not happening

The only downside that the NCAA could use as an excuse is that it MAY encourage kids to take less classes towards their degree.

It's probably a good thing as many students in crowded public schools take 5 years to graduate from school, anyway. If anything it allows kids to develop academically and athletically at a pace at which they are comfortable.
