Fathead rule mothballed for the moment

Joe Pipkin, SS. 22 inches, 12 pounds. Tremendous explosiveness off the line. Can be difficult to motivate. Joe Pipkin, SS. 22 inches, 12 pounds. Tremendous explosiveness off the line. Can be difficult to motivate.

Our greatest vinyl-based fears have come to pass, with the NCAA's board of directors following through on recommendations to suspend two high-profile new pieces of legislation, including the beloved (by us) Fathead Rule:

The Board postponed new rules deregulating who can perform recruiting tasks and what printed materials can be sent to prospects. Board members also considered suspending a third proposal that eliminated restrictions on modes and numerical limitations of recruiting contacts, but they ultimately agreed to let the membership decide that rule’s future through the override process. Suspending the rules means they will not become effective unless and until appropriate modifications are made. 

Do we see how these proposals could get entirely out of hand if left unchecked? Sure. Are we disappointed that the mailing of oversized vinyl helmets and humans to high school kids isn't going to be a thing? Little bit. Is the true source of our disappointment welling from the destruction of our plan to get our cat registered as an associate degree holder from a diploma mill and see if we can get him included on hot juco prospect lists, thereby earning a giant Fathead of his face? It absolutely is. Catheads!
