Evidently Urban Meyer was recruiting Carl Moore through his girlfriend and there is alot of talk that UF offered her a gymanstic scholarship at UF to get him to come as well. A little fishy for UF to offer a gymnast a scholarship all the way in California right in the middle of recruiting her boy friend.

Tim Tebow also called Carl Moore right after the Heisman ceremony which is a direct violation of NCAA rules.

Don't worry though, im sure this will get pushed under the rug like everything else Meyer does.

It will just get swept under the rug. It's a shame too, because Urban needs to be exposed for what he is.

didn't he tell the gymnastics coach to recruit her to get moore's recruitment?

though it's illegal and cheap it's probably hard to prove.

well theres a rule that says a coach of one sport can't contact a recruit of another sport. And she said that Meyer said that she should come to UF and do gymnastics there. Another thing that makes it all fishy is how now she is saying that she never even talked to him after saying she use to talk to him everyday.

I think I read somewhere that 71 out of 72 commitments have qualified at Florida. There's no way. Florida fans can enjoy the success, but when the NCAA comes down on #7, they'll wish Zook was still coaching.

Patchan, an offensive lineman from Seffner Armwood, is one of four Florida commitments rated among the best overall prospects in the country. The others include defensive tackle Omar Hunter (Buford, Ga.), safety Will Hill (Jersey City, N.J.) and junior college receiver Carl Moore (Placerville, Calif.).

''Florida was just so organized with everything they did,'' Patchan III said. "Florida was the first to identify my son after his sophomore season as a national recruit and Florida was the first school to offer him a written scholarship.

"When you're a young kid, that's the dream and being the first to make that dream a reality is something a kid remembers.''

The love of his parents is eventually what led Hunter to commit to Florida. Hunter, who at 6-1 and 318 pounds can dunk, originally committed to Notre Dame, but his allegiance gradually shifted south as his parents grew fond of Meyer.

Meyer continued to build a relationship with Hunter's parents, despite Hunter's commitment to the Irish. When it finally came time for Hunter's official visit to Gainesville, his parents went along for the ride.

''They really loved Coach Meyer,'' Hunter said. "Meyer always called them and wanted to know how they were doing.

"[Meyer] really cares about family.''

Because he's the 7th coach at Florida since Bobby has been at Florida State.

And after next year, he'll have the same amount of National Championships as Saint Bobby. In only four years. ;)

Not very surprising. Not at all, really.

Give them the death penalty, SMU style! Haha! Maybe that will teach Urban 'No Ethics' Meyer.

NCAA finds no rules violations in Meyer's phone calls to recruit

The NCAA has found no rules violations in Florida coach Urban Meyer's recruitment of junior college receiver Carl Moore, the school said Tuesday.

"Allegations about impermissible telephone calls by the football staff have been reviewed by the NCAA and the university, and at this time, the information does not indicate any violations of NCAA rules occurred," Florida spokesman Steve McClain said.

The NCAA's findings were first reported by Florida Today. The NCAA did not return a phone message seeking comment.

Meyer had several conversations with Moore's girlfriend, current Florida gymnast Maranda Smith, while both were attending Sierra (Calif.) Community College last fall.

Since the Gators were recruiting Smith to the gymnastics team, it was questioned whether Meyer violated NCAA rules by talking to Smith, who apparently shared a cell phone with Moore.

It was also questioned whether Meyer handed a cell phone to quarterback Tim Tebow to talk to Moore right after Tebow won the Heisman Trophy, which would have violated a rule that prevents coaches from having current athletes help them recruit others.

Moore signed with the Gators last fall and enrolled in classes last month. Smith also signed with Florida and is competing with the gymnastics team.
