Perhaps someday, we will have 'hostesses' driving up to places like Warroad, Penticton or Thunder Bay to cheer on recruits....:eek:

Recruiting Hostess have existed since the early '60s.

It's not just that they are hostesses - it's that now, these cute college girls are driving hundreds of miles to cheer at prospects' games. That's incredible.

If it becomes legal I believe more schools will follow Tennesse.

I never played any sports in college, so I suppose I technically still have eligability left. If schools start to follow suit for hockey programs, I wonder if some of these gals would be willing to come cheer for me at one of my adult hockey games? Co-eds in the bleachers might make it difficult to concentrate on hockey!?! (A guy can dream...)

Your eligibility clock starts the second you show up for your first class... regardless of whether you play a sport or not.

Deadspin, of all places, has a great Brief History Of Campus Recruiting Whores (http://deadspin.com/5422547/a-brief-history-of-campus-recruiting-hostesses).

In football you might, but in hockey there is an age limit, to keep the Canadian granddads at home.

Minor detail. No one has to tell the co-eds about that rule. Besides, I don't have any grand kids yet. (And I better not have any in the near future!)

That's not all she'd have on her hands.

incorrect. You are eligible to play as long as you have not graduated and not used up eligibility by playing.

No, you're incorrect. You really should stop trying to look smart, because you aren't.
