    wow this is crazy. So, will LSU be reporting this violation. I would be willing to bet 90% or more of D1 schools will be.

    Probably 100%

    Colleges can still use other scouting services but because the popular ones among fans have combine clips, etc... they do not fall under the guidelines set by the NCAA. I guess we will see Rivals, Scout, etc... provide different layers of service to Colleges and Fans. So actually the fans will have more film available from these services than the colleges, well in theory.

    Just seems weird...

    Someone define "Subscribing"? I don't see this being very enforcible in terms of "subscribing" as in reading, watching vids.

    I think the determining factor is the pay per view insider info.

    The NCAA has to do whatever it can to stop these Svengali like "mentors" from being paid go betweens under the guise of providing scouting services for the schools.

    Now, I wish the NCAA would make a rule that allows for colleges to trade players. If we're stacked at WR and are in sore need of a good LB or QB....why not be able to make a trade with another school If all parties are agreeable?

    Remove the condition that players sit out and lose a year of eligibility.

    D1 schools should be more lax about credits transferring because these athletes generate a lot of $$$ and the "student" part of the term "student/athlete" is a misnomer anyway.

    So where does this puts LSU, paying Lyles the $6,000 dollars?

    Dumb rule. You can't police the internet. It's a waste of everyone's time and money to try.
