A little less pressing the flesh
The big-time high school football recruit in your home and his coach will have to get by without seeing your favorite college football head coach during the current evaluation period.
It seems that while no one was looking last winter, the NCAA passed a rule that bars head coaches from hitting the road during this evaluation time, which runs through the end of May.
While the coaches weren't permitted to talk to recruits before, they could, at least in theory, get a look at them, while making nice with their coaches for possible business down the road.
Some coaches are making this out to be an unfair restriction on their trade, but anything that keeps new Arkansas coach Bobby Petrino from promising kids he'll be in one place, only to turn up somewhere else next week, can't be such a bad thing.
