Tyler Holton named ACC Pitcher of the Week for record 5th time

You may have noticed. Tyler Holton might be having a good season.

On Monday, he was named the Atlantic Coast Conference's Pitcher of the Week for the fifth time this season. He joins former North Carolina State pitcher Mike Rogers as the only hurlers to win the honor five times in season.

Holton, who is now 8-2 with a 2.55 earned run average, went eight innings and struck out 11 in FSU's 8-2 win over No. 5 Louisville last Friday.

He won the award last week after throwing his first complete-game shutout in FSU's 4-0 win over Wake Forest.

4/14 - NCAA adopts new rules for football

On Friday, the NCAA Division I football council released some new rules. Here's a quick summary of the major changes:

1. Schools will be able to hire a 10th assistant coach starting on Jan. 9, 2018. Jimbo Fisher spoke about this in an interview with the media on Tuesday

2. There is now an early signing period for football on Dec. 1, which will be in addition to the traditional early February signing day (1st Wednesday). This is same period previously reserved for mid-year junior-college transfers.

3. Schools may no longer hire people close to a prospective student-athlete for a two-year period before and after the student’s anticipated and actual enrollment at the school. The exception is if the hire is for a full-time salaried assistant coach.

4. Football camps must take place on a school’s campus or in facilities regularly used by the school for practice or competition. No more satellite camps.

5. Official visits may now start as early as April 1 of a recruit's junior year.

6. Schools may now only sign 25 recruits per class.

7. The NCAA effectively eliminated two-a-day practices. After a normal practice, all that is permitted in the same day is a walk-through (no contact, no conditioning).
