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!
