On Wednesday it was discussed in Indianapolis that the NCAA has simplified the rulebook and adding tougher penalties to coaches and universities that violate these rules. The simplifications of these rules come after a tough off-season for a number of the preseason Top-25 teams.
Ohio State, for example, probably went through one of the worst off-seasons a program could have. Not only did these rules and violations make their head coach resign; but it also led to their starting quarterback leaving the school.
If these rules were as simple as the committee is planning on making them then this Ohio State team could be primed for a run at the Big Ten championship and quite possibly the BCS Championship. Instead they’re stuck with a new head coach and a new quarterback. Both of whom will be learning on the fly this year.
Simpler rules will help in the long run. It is just a shame that they couldn’t already be that simple.
