Skip to comments.SEC's hilarious attempt to stop Franklin [ncaa Football]

The SEC football coaches, proud purveyors of oversigning and other honorable recruiting practices, have banded together in the name of integrity. Take a bow, (good ol') boys. You deserve it.

Apparently the SEC coaches aren't too pleased with a plan hatched by one of their former colleagues, James Franklin. The new Penn State coach, formerly at Vanderbilt, and his assistants will guest coach next month at summer camps in the heart of SEC country, at Georgia State and Stetson. It means the Penn State staff can evaluate prospects from in and around Atlanta and DeLand, Fla., two SEC recruiting hotbeds.
Although NCAA rules limit programs from running high school camps more than 50 miles from their campus, coaches are allowed to work at camps outside of the radius as long as they don't run the events.
"The Big Ten and NCAA rules allow you to do these things," Franklin recently told reporters during a Coaches Caravan stop in King of Prussia, Pa. "We wanted to not only have camps on our campus, which we're going to have a bunch of them, but also be able to maybe take the Penn State brand and be able to take it to part of the country that maybe young men and families wouldn't be able to make it to our place, take it to them.
"And I'm fired up about it."

Franklin is causing chest pains in Columbus and now a massive whining outbreak in the south.
Lol. BRRrr. It’s cold up there in Pennsylvania. And hard for Mama to drive to all the games.
Notice that he is not planning on having any of these camps in Alabama. It’s probably not a good idea to show up in Alabama with Pennsylvania tags on your car. Someone might just need to stop you for a safety violation.
I think he’s going where the talent is. Other than Texas and CA, I think FL and GA is where the talent is.
Stealth Carpetbagger Ping!....................
Like anybody is gonna sign up with them..
Carpetbaggers always go where the talent is.
Dang, you beat me to it!
Heckuva job, Muschump.
Bring back Zook! At least he could recruit.
I think I read that Alabama players generally do not make a great transition to the NFL as some other big-time College programs. It seems that Les Miles does a much better job preparing his players for the NFL.
Come on dfw, you’re not fired up for this season? I’m guessing if Boom doesn’t wil 9 or more, the natives will be calling for his head?
Given the over signing that ALA and most all the other SEC schools have done, their percentage of players in the NFL should be even higher. They get to take 35 LOI’s every year and weed out the hurt, and non-producing - turning over their roster like an NFL team.
Whatever replaces the ncaa needs to stop this crap. 4 year scholarships or nothing. And they ALL count against the 85.
