Prob was a Sec school and proabally has a direct link with them all of a sudden being a dominant conference which hasn't always been the case.so when and where did this start?
I'm pretty sure Woody did it back in the day (when there were no limits), his reasoning was he'd rather have them on our bench than playing for scum or nd
It's not taking Texas A & M long to get into the SEC oversigning trend. They just got their 33 commit of this class. I guess 25 max means anything.
Id start with the sec west
The NCAA has their nose in everything else, I just don't understand why all NCAA teams aren't forced to play by the same rules in recruiting, as far as how many scholarships can be given in any one year. I get that they can't necessarily stop all the money under the table deals, but I would think they could level the field in number of scholarships given per year.
I miss my Kate Upton Picture
Because there is no NCAA requirement regarding oversigning. The other conferences simply agreed to tie one arm behind their back when it comes to football.
This is not to say I support oversigning. I do not. In fact, I don't understand why the parents of kids who were cut are not making a bigger deal out of this. Maybe it is because their kids' education is still paid for?
Either way, the NCAA didn't twist the arms of the Pac-12 or BIG to not oversign. They stopped oversigning voluntarily. While it definitely leads to more respect as an academic institution, it is a disadvantage when it comes to competition on the gridron.

I get that. I just wish the NCAA would set a hard and fast limit, cut out the loopholes, whatever they are and level the playing field for everyone. I do understand and agree with you that the big 10 could oversign too, but choose not to.I mean it can't be that hard to make it fair for everyone.
