Simply. Most sports offer partial scholarships. If you only offered a scholarship of any sort to a player when in that part of the year they were not playing football, would that count? Would he be a walk on or part of the 85? For example, if your found a 3star prospect that wanted to go to UGA, could he have to pay student loans/HOPE during the fall, but in spring semester the school could pay for his schooling? The point is that at no time when football was being played would they be under scholarship.
Personally I don't think this helps large schools, but small schools. I was wondering if there was a rule against this.
