Scout/Rivals Operators Benefiting from New NCAA Rule?
Funny, I was just having a discussion about this yesterday. Will prohibiting college head coaches from being on the recruiting trail this spring put Internet site operators in position to exploit their ability to contact recruits at will? The theory is that these "reporters" are unregulated and rely on recruiting information to make a buck. Many, it is believed, already act as intermediaries in the recruiting process - and make it a win-win for everyone involved. Schools get more access to recruits and the Internet guys get more traffic/money for their site.
The friend with which I was discussing this made the point that how is this different from traditional media? A newspaper could lures more readers and more subscriptions from its coverage of a team. However, it is pretty far-fetched to believe this somehow would put more money in a reporter's pockets.
