not dumbass at all if you follow college football recruiting. Basically all communication with players is regulated except for text messaging, which need to be brought into line with the rest of the rules.

Now if we could just get them to change the clock rules back.

Yeah, submitter here is the dumbass. If you follow college football or basketball even a little bit you'd be well aware of how out of hand text messaging has gotten.

The NCAA needs to get text messges regulated so they can get back to being only one step behind recruiters. In a few years they'll finally get around to blocking myspace messages.

Amazing. You have discovered a topic that couldn't give a rat's ass about. And this should be in the Sports tab not the Tech tab.

Johnny thinks they should relax the recruiting rules.

Sure, it might make sense to regulate communication with future players, but there's another side to this.

That side is - the NCAA sucks.

Just out of curiosity, what do these coaches and recruits talk/text message about so much? Is it just a way for the coaches to keep getting their school's name in front of the kid until he makes his pick? Or are they dumb enough to put in things like "U Like redheds for ur nxt visit?"

Amazing. You haven't discovered that stories can be posted to multiple tabs simultaneously. Even the front page. It's shocking, especially for a story that combines sports and technology, that Fark would dare to put this story on the "Sports" and "Tech" tabs at the same time.

Wanker.

yeah I coached a kid that was getting recruited by a D1 school. Over a couple of weekends while we were at tournaments during no-contact periods, he would get like 10 txts from one assistant coach trying to buddy up to him. from the mouth of the player, it backfired. but maybe he didnt want to go there anyways.

Somebody needs to explain to me exactly WHAT elements of NCAA D-1A sports are not entirely devoid of any ethics whatsoever.

the ones I witnessed personally were "r u watching the game?", "Tony Parker is unbelievable", "man I hope the Pistons win" and "god I hate robert horry". This was during the Pistons-Spurs NBA finals game 7.

and the reasoning behind it I think is so that if the player is around his friends he can look like a bigshot because he is wanted for a sports scholarship (brought to you by Blank State University). And then its in the name of his friends and they ask about it and keeps the name from getting lost in the shuffle.

There's no such thing as Division I-A anymore.

/"Football Bowl Subdivision"
//as opposed to "NCAA Football Championship Subdivision"
///They're all Division I
////http://i-aa.org/article.asp?articleid=79814 (pops)
////Division II-A and II-AA, on the other hand, not too far off.

I stand corrected. But my question remains.
