OK, well it seems that EDGATE is in full swing. I have no clue if he broke a rule as far as trying to get kids to switch for Tennessee to USC at the last second. One thing is for sure, they weren't ethical at all. But then again, check the source........it is u$c. Anyways, the WWL, who I am now beginning to hate because of their less than stellar reporters making things up, had this today on one of their recruiting websites. Here is the link, which explains exactly the Early Enrollee Rule:
It is pretty clear if you read it. It has nothing to do with the dead period or if what Ed. O. did in that regard was within NCAA standards and rules. Once again, in that respect, he was very unethical. The rule is clear, and since I think UT started school today (that is what I heard) then I would guess that they aren't ineligible based on starting school.
What can't be debated though is the low class scum that USC has become, and they went to new territory by hiring STIFFIN. He is probably the most hated man right now in college football. They hate him in the south, they hate him in the State of Florida, they really hate him in the Bay Area, and now 1/2 of Los Angeles hates him. Is there anywhere that doesn't hate him. Maybe because of the incredibly high (according to Stiffin) GPA of his Tennessee team last year, and because only 1 player got arrested last year, he can get a job next year at a nice Ivy League school. After all, he is all about the student/athletes.
