Why can the NCAA not make a policy that states this:

All schools can maintain up to 85 scholarship players on their roster.

No team can sign more than 28 players a year.

The year will begin after national signing day.

All Gray Shirts and Medical Redshirts will be interviewed by an Outsourced agency and the cost of which will be paid by the College requesting. This is the key to keeping players from being used and abused.

Mandatory 4 year scholarships. No more one and dones. If a kid doesn't live up to the expectations of him then maybe your coaches should better evaluate these players before offering.

I don't always take names when I kick ass but when I do, they most often belong to a Wolverine.

I saw the program on ESPN's "outside the lines," highlighting a QB that was offered a schollie at LSU, then after the season started, he was notified by mail that Les Miles revoked his scholarship.

I didn't read the USA Today article, but on ESPN, they stated that the SEC was the most abusive of the young recruits in this manner, over all other conferences. The BigTen was the best at not using this practice of oversigning.
