I know the Big Ten allows treams to over sign by 3 if they inform the head office and can explain why. Notice Penn State and Ohio State signed 27 players each because both schools are coming off of reduced scholarship sanctions. The only 2 schools to sign more then 25. The last 3 years we only had 82, so we went a little over by 2 guys, its not like we sign 39 guys. It's just enough to cover any losses.
Penn st. has admittedly more room and can sign another big class next year. I'm good with it. If you want to win, you need as much talent as you can get. Of course scUM will do the same. I wish the rest of the Big Ten would do the same. It's a life lesson, just like real life if a person isn't good enough for their job they get fired. This isn't as cut throat as that because kids can transfer and play, go on medical hardship and still get their education paid for. That's not that bad of a deal.
