    on the amount of time academic non-qualifiers can spend in preseason practice before they have to leave? I have heard/read 15 days and 12 days. I would love to see it in writing if possible, but I haven't found it on the NCAA site or anywhere else.

    Sorry. My copy of the 19,999-page NCAA handbook is back at the office.

    Seriously, all coaches have one. A coach gave me his when he thought the FB team was skirting some rules a few years ago. His interpretation didn't match that of the NCAA.

    The books aren't that hard to get your hands on.

    I was told by an AD that the toughest job at any athletic department is compliance director. I would have to agree.

    It would take a six-figure salary plus paid education in law for me to even consider such a job.

    I thought it was two weeks. Not sure if it is a straight "that many days" or X number of practices but the time period doesn't stretch longer than two weeks.

    I don't remember who said it, but I recall the saying that it is impossible to obey every single rule in the NCAA book, meaning that every single team in the country, technically, cheats.
