Article on Oversigning....


I am not a big Gregg Doyel fan, and his disdain for all things Ole Miss is pretty well-documented. However, I think he makes some valid points in this article:    Oversigning

Now, I am not going to jump on the Houston Nutt hatewagon. We all know he oversigned kids, and we know they made the rule based on his actions. However, I think it is a pretty despicable practice. To my (limited) knowledge, Nutt has always followed through and given kids schollies if he promised it to them during an oversigning period. So, I give him props for that. But, the whole practice rubs me the wrong way. The Les Miles incident mentioned in the article is the most damning. Cutting a kid after he starts summer school and works out for a couple months on campus is atrociously evil. Somehow I wish the NCAA could make scholarships a four-year contract, that way kids couldn't be cut loose like that. It would also make schools become a whole lot better at evaluating talent. The flip side to this coin, though, is the fact that schools become the losers if a kid signs a four-year schollie and then bolts early for the pros. Either way someone loses. Thoughts?????
