The final crazy rule on this list also stems around evaluating recruits. The Opening is the premier recruiting event in the cycle, but the only thing missing from it is college coaches being allowed to attend.
Coaches watch tape of 5-star recruits dominating their competition during the season, which is fine. However, they would be able to get a great evaluation and feel for a recruit at an event like The Opening because now the 5-star prospect is going up against significantly better talent.
If a non-Nike school doesn't want its coaching staff at The Opening, then an event like the Rivals 5-star Challenge could work.
Plus, college coaches should be able to watch Under Armour All-America Game and U.S. Army All-American Bowl practices in person during the week like NFL coaches and scouts watch Senior Bowl practices.
