NCAA to Consider Sweeping Changes to Athlete Aid and Eligibility Rules

Looks like it basically amounts to student athletes on full scholarship getting an extra $2,000 per year and cutting scholarships from 85 to 80. It's not huge but it's a pretty big step.

Offensive ineptitude: The SEC has long been known for the quality of defense played in this conference. But some of the offenses through five weeks have been hard to watch. In fact, three of the worst five offenses among the 120 FBS teams reside in the SEC. Granted, some of that probably has to do with the caliber of defenses in the SEC, but Ole Miss is ranked 116th nationally in total offense, Vanderbilt 117th and Kentucky 118th. Even No. 1-ranked LSU is ranked 90th. In fact, if you count Mississippi State (70th), South Carolina (78th) and Auburn (79th), seven of the 12 SEC teams are ranked in the bottom half of the country right now in total offense. That’s downright offensive, or defensive, depending on how you look at it.

NCAA President wants to close loophole

It seems that there are some people who think that it is not right for a parent to sell the athletic services of a son or daughter. The rules do not make it clear that this is wrong. Some might call it a loophole in need of closing.
