NCAA deregulates Calls & Texts to BB Recruits - No limit on calls & texts

That's right, the crazy brain trust at the NCAA has done the unthinkable. I don't know if you guys missed this, but late last Thursday night ESPN reported that the NCAA has deregulated their rules limiting coaches phone, text, and social media contact with BB recruits, after their Sophomore year. That's right, college coaches can now call and text and message BB recruits, who have just completed their Sophomore year, to their hearts content. This is really perplexing to me, because I thought it had long been the NCAA's mission to protect the sanctity and normalcy of a student athlete's school life.

I would have never expected this from the utlra conservative and illogical NCAA. Is this a sign of a newer laxer NCAA? What's next? Will college FB and other coaches soon be given the same freedoms? I don't see how you could exclude them.

I guess the thinking is, that now coaches will have more time to get to know athletes, develop a bond, and determine if there is truly a good fit between University and Athlete. I can't help but think that this new ruling was inspired by knuckleheads like Reeves Nelson and Drew Gordon. Could have those two mistakes been avoided, had this rule been in place, and we had more time to get to know each recruit better? Who knows. Reeves problems had been well documented and BH was given a bad recommendation by his HS coach, so maybe not in this case. Will this lead to less defections, dropouts, and transfers? Who knows. One thing is for sure, the NCAA has taken a VERY progressive turn.

What do you guys think? Will it help, or change anything? Will this truly make things better for schools and athletes or only further benefit those schools with greater resources?
