Maybe next week it should just be a little more generic.

Maybe
"Recruiting for team #117"
"Looking forward to the new incoming class"
"Lookout class of 2013 is a monstrous class"


a lot less likely

The Rock looked awesome, the pics not so much. Would have helped recruiting more if hot wife had been pictured with the Rock instead of Jake and Ertel. In fact, for future purposes, if pictures are all we're gonna be left with, surround the Rock with beautiful women before taking the pics. Much, much more impressive.

The NCAA isn't controlling anyone's first amendment rights. What they can do is hold your school responsible for what you do with those rights, the same way they can enforce rules on contact with coaches.

If you don't want to believe me, that's fine, but check out the @UTCompliance Twitter feed. Seems many of you have no clue on NCAA rules and how a school can be punished for fans' actions.
I hear what you are saying but to me this is just another example of how ludicrous the NCAA has become! In this day of social media how stupid can this "rule" be! How about pictures from visits? How about volquest? How about ESPN? Etc, etc, etc. Someone painting a rock, please NCAA get real!

What if it is a "booster" and a "fan?" How stupid can this be? If the NCAA "investigates" something of this nature they should be reprimanded for wasting money! Perhaps the NCAA should get the "death penalty!" Better question ... Who is investigating the NCAA?

The Sports Animal has the compliance guy on by the name of Dooley (no relation). He said that any fan that has paid for a ticket is considered a booster. They spoke on the topic of the rock, and he did state that it could not be painted and that he had to monitor what it said. But yes, a fan is a booster if they have paid for a ticket. Now, how can the NCAA prove that the fan paid for a ticket would be nearly impossible unless they caught who painted the rock and then searched his purchase history.

Look up what the ncaa considers a booster. Most fans would qualify

If the university was that concerned about an NCAA violation because of some fans painting it, then they would just tear down the rock or ban painting it all together

The NCAA has no supeona power. Would be hard unless they had testimony from an eyewiness.

The AA is going through serious rules revisions now. Stuff like this will go away as a concern if they go the direction it appears.
