I sometimes ask myself this question and wonder if I even understand any of the new recruiting rules. I guess I do understand them, but the application of these new rules has been mediocre at best. For the record I have never been a fan of the new rules. Would I love to see recruiting slow down a little bit? Yes. But the implementation of the current rules 1) doesn't do enough to actually slow down recruiting to the point where it is helpful; 2) it leaves both the PSA (prospective student athlete) and college coaches with significantly LESS information than before and significantly LESS time to make decisions; and 3) no one really seems to be following the rules anyway.
