    Boooo!! I undestand what they are trying to do, but these are football players, they need to practice and be in shape. I think the NCAA is going a bit over board on this one

    As long as the NCAA doesn't start sticking their noses into the "voluntary" practices...

    I'm sure the voluntary practices are next on the list... isn't that where a couple of kids have died? It seems to me they're forcing teams into this "voluntary" practice without a coach present thing which is likely more dangerous to players. Perhaps they should say that no practice can occur without medical professionals on standby or something of the sort. As usual they are "solving" the problem in the simplest way instead of the most logical. Between this and the "halo" rule change, I don't recall a single year where the NCAA took more strides backwards.

    What's the reason for no longer allowing Freshmen to report a few days early? Sounds like most Freshmen could be heading towards a redshirt year. Hard enough to adapt to a new level of play against fellow Freshmen, let along having to jump right in the deep end going against upperclassmen on the first day of practice. Maybe this will push more Freshmen towards the early enrollment route, which seemed to be the developing trend already.

    2003 Halo Rule Change?

    Last season, I heard speculation that there would be a modification to the punt return halo rule. (eliminating the distance ) I have 2002 NCAA rules but cannot find any confirm. on the website. IMO, Chris will have less O time but remain Spec . teams & D. Eliminating the distance will change the return teams dynamics, with pos./neg. results. Any clarification on the rule change? Thanks in advance

    Shrink, there is a change. I don't remember the whole changed rule but it is more of a judgment call now. Whether the defender interferes with the ability to catch the ball. I'll see if I can find some clarification.

    Thanks Coasty!
    If my read is correct, increased pressure = Gamble opportunities!
    Not to mention injured opposition! (Be vewy,vewy careful, Bucks!)
