SEC Schools Join Big Ten Coaches Opposing NCAA Recruiting Deregulation

By Jason Priestas on February 19, 2013 at 11:20a

It appears as if the Big Ten has allies in the fight against recruiting deregulation:

McGarity said he talked to four other athletic directors in the Southeastern Conference who were also opposed to the legislation, and his goal was to have the SEC vote, 14- 0, to override the legislation. The SEC’s athletic directors are scheduled to meet next week in Birmingham, Ala., to consider the legislation.

Opponents of the measures adopted in Dallas have until March 20 to gather 75 votes from presidents of Division I universities to start an override of the deregulation legislation.
