This is great news for college sports. The NCAA rules were just too voluminous. I don't think this is necessarily better for big budget schools then small budget schools. The smaller budget schools will appreciate the reduction in compliance expense.
Its nice that they have taken care of some of the stupid, smaller rules, but I found this statement by NCAA President Emmert interesting:
"We're not going to overcome those natural competitive advantages people have, but when student-athletes step onto the field they know the other team has same number of players and scholarships," Emmert said. "They may have a fancier stadium, but we have a chance to beat these guys because there's competitive fairness. We heard that again and again from student-athletes."
It seems he is unaware of the following differences, as pointed out by poster jwuerth on this board, about scholarship commitments over the past 5 years:
ND, 106 +36
Florida, 109 +33
Georgia, 110 +32
Ohio State, 113 +29
LSU, 125 +17
Or maybe he knows he just doesn't have the votes to do anything about it. Still, it would be nice if everyone could agree on making it the same for everyone on this front, hopefully making it come out in the kids' favor.
