SEC Passes New Rules That Fight Oversigning...Slightly

The SEC Preesidents passed legislation that would lower the annual scholarship limit from 28 to 25. This cap is at least advertised to help stop oversigning. While the legislation is a step in the right direction, it completely misses the actual issue: the 85 scholarship player roster limit. This would still allow coaches to sign a full 25 players (instead of 28), regardless of how much room is available for the full roster. An example is when a team has 68 players, and therefore has room for a class of 17. Teams in the SEC would still be allowed to sign 25, and end up having to cut 8 afterwards as a result. The SEC is asking the NCAA to consider their legislation as the national standard, which would probably help the situation, but comes nowhere close to the B1G's policies against oversigning. Unfortunately, what we can now expect is for many national news outlets (COUGHESPNCOUGH) to throw much praise to the SEC for legislation that really does the equivalent to putting a small bandage on a Third Degree Burn.
