A New Way to Score

The rules of college football are changing

The talent in high school gets better each year.
It’s a gridiron garden it seems.
And colleges vie for the cream of the crop
in hopes of fulfilling their dreams.

They try to impress those they want to enroll.
There are letters and phone calls and gifts.
Both coaches and scouts will do all that they can
to convince them their school’s the best fit.

So what does it take for a school to succeed?
Big scholarships, payoffs and more.
They wine them and dine them and tempt them (off field)
by showing them new ways to score.

It’s more than a game played with pigskin on grass.
Though some call it football, it’s not.
Recruiters are guilty of offensive fouls.
What’s quite out of bounds needs to stop.
