Thursday thoughts 12/04/08

Chuck Burton has thoughts on the FCS playoffs in his weekly column "The CSN Way". One note, playoffs are not unique to FCS. Division II and Division III, as well as NAIA football all have post season tournaments.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

David Coulson previews this week's playoff games and predicts the winners in his weekly "Around FCS" colum.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Meanwhile in the BCS Division, which does not have a playoff, over on Double T Nation, it looks like Texas Tech's coach Mike Leach will spurn the paltry $1.75 Million they pay him for more lucrative digs at Washington.

In the recruiting wars, UCLA's Rich Neuheisel has been using a helecopter . Coach Brown probably does not have a helecopter.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I thought this article on Club football at the University of Vermont was interesting.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I'll be back tomorrow with more UMass football recruiting news.

There must be some way to help Coach Brown recruit that isn't a violation of the NCAA. How can we help Coach Brown recruit? Sending $ isn't the answer. Once the $ is deposited into the AD account the AD can spend the money any way they want.

I'm pretty sure you can give restricted contributions, for however specific you want it to be. For instance, you can say "This money is for a new scoreboard at McGuirk." Even if they're not raising money for the scoreboard at that time, they can't spend it on anything else.
