It wouldn't be fun, if the ACC didn't chime in as well, John Swofford, ACC Commissioner:
“It is creative,” Swofford told the show. “It’s kind of like we’re going to take you on vacation but you’ve got to practice while we’re on vacation … it’s a huge intrusion on a college student’s life and taking his ability to have a break out of his hands. I guess it depends on how you look at it.”
Swofford was asked if he believes a rule against such spring football trips will be in place this time next year.
“I would guess so,” he said. “I haven’t talked to a lot of people specifically about this particular idea because to be honest with you I’m not sure anybody has really specifically talked about that or thought a whole lot about it.
“But based on conversations with other commissioners and athletic directors and faculty representatives and so forth regarding the whole time-demand issue, I would guess that this will be addressed at the NCAA level through the appropriate processes. But we’ll see. I could be wrong. I’ve been wrong before, but my guess is it will be addressed.”
No word from the American Athletic Conference yet. (that's the one with UCF, UConn and Cincy in it).
- One of Michigan's top targets in 2017 is right in our own backyard with 5 star WR Donovan Peoples-Jones. Jimmy called him on signing day.
- Another top target is CO QB Dylan McCaffrey, you might know his brother if you watched the Rose Bowl or any Stanford game this past year. Or his Dad from watching the NFL in the 90's.
- Michigan commit and 2017 three-star wide receiver Jeremiah Holloman has de-committed from the Wolverines 2017 class. Plenty of time to find a replacement.
