The departure of the whipping boy led to a week off in the compliance contest, but we're back for a new week. The form to submit this week's responses can be found here.
Questions for this week are all true/false:
1. It is NOT permissible for for an institution to have contact with a student-athlete who has begun service on an official church mission without obtaining permission to contact from the institution from which the student-athlete withdrew prior to beginning his or her mission if the student-athlete signed a National Letter of Intent and attended the institution with which he or she signed as a full-time student.
2. An institution may cancel financial aid based on athletics ability, during the period of the award, because of a psychological condition that prevents the recipient from participating in athletics.
3. It is NOT permissible to display a prospective student-athlete's name on the scoreboard, even if the facility is completely empty and closed to the public.
4. A member of the institution's faculty may have contact with a prospective student-athlete on the institution's campus, or within 30 miles of campus during a prospective student-athlete's OFFICIAL visit.
5. A person who has made a financial contribution to an institution's athletic department within the last five calendar years either directly or indirectly (mandatory ticket fees, etc) is considered a booster and may not contact a prospective student-athlete with the intention of recruiting him to said institution.
I will compile the results from the first four weeks and have standings out tomorrow.
