This would be good for the bigger schools with deep pockets in recruiting.

"The law says we need to pay you AFTER you play for us..... "

There's no way the NCAA could quantify what the compensation is for future use, so it would be left up to the recruiters to pitch how much it could be for each recruit. Those schools with bigger coffers will be able to pay a premium for the better players.

I used to read Stewart as religiously as I read 11w now.

I don't know the industry, but if there are good journalists, writing good sports articles, isn't there a place for this? I would certainly visit. If they added a reasonable amount of advertising and enough content so as not to be confused with click bait, and I would think people would come to that site regularly.

I would love to see it too, just think it's too complicated. I.e. How could they account for back log at a schools position? High rated player sits behind Zeke until senior season, and doesn't get enough carries to develop while lower rated player goes to MAC school and has great 4 year career.

Why are we not bashing the "fan" for tweeting at a recruit? We should be getting 100k tweets letting others know this is NOT okay.

There is always at least one employee pissed about their job and their boss. Regardless of actual job requirements, someone always feels like they are getting shafted. If you cater to the bottom, you will lose the top.

I want as much live college football as possible! If that is more bowl games, so be it. If its more reg season games, sign me up. Expanded playoffs, Yessir!!!!

The market will correct when necessary. Right now, schools are willing to eat ticket costs for exposure and extra practices. When and if that expense becomes too much, and schools/team decline invitations, then other schools might be able to negotiate less ticket sales requirements.

Right now, I'd watch college football over 95% of the other cable/television channels BS.

I think it's viewed as a mess because the NFL is making the rules. 

If NCAA said, declare, stay eligible, but don't sign, and your welcome back. No scholly, but you can play.  

Or something like that, I'm just spitballing here. Make some NCAA friendly rules that benefits players, and doesn't hurt school and coaches. Maybe roster expansion (no Increaae in scholarship limit) for these types on players. 

Some creative ideas that doesn't pay attention to NFL.

I think this is an NCAA policy and not the NFL. I personally think the NCAA should allow what you mentioned AND other flexibility for drafted and non-signed players (I.e Joey Bosa). If you maintain grades and other stipulations, you can come back to your school. The NFL sticks it to players all the time, the NCAA could create policies that truly benefit players and holds NFL accountable for bad management, or continued personnel problems.
