I wanted to put Bob Loblaw in the title, the Facebook post, the Tweet, the text, everything in this post.  And then I thought only about 4 people would get a decade-old joke from a sitcom nobody watched, and so I went without.

But why should you go to jail for a crime someone else noticed?

This is a good question.  I think (1) it does a lot for Group of Five, who are always losing players to late Power 5 offers (which is a bit of a concern for Iowa going forward), so it was going to get enough support from just about everyone; and (2) there are enough people who think they have great recruiters as head coaches/on staff that they want to leave the window open for them to do their thing during the fall.  Like, if you hired P.J. Fleck, wouldn't you have the optimism to believe he'll gain more than he loses if everyone is still available during the season?

I think a June date is coming, because a lot of kids seem to want it.  This is a step in that direction, but it's a baby step to be sure.
