***Recruiting Forum Rules - READ BEFORE POSTING***

The recruiting forum has gotten out of hand and we need to fix this right now. I admit that I myself may have slipped up in the past, but not anymore. The recruiting forum is not exempt from the rules for the rest of the forums. This is not a new rule, just a clarification of an existing one.

Links:

No factual information can be posted without a link to the source of that information. This means any time a player commits to a school, names a leader, drops a school from his list, etc. you must provide a link with your post. If you do not have a valid link supporting your information then keep it to yourself. Obviously, you don't need to link to your own personal opinions. Just make it clear that they are your opinions.

Acceptable Sources:

Most online newspapers and websites are acceptable. No premium information (info that you pay for) is to be posted. The only exception to that rule is if the information you are posting is in the header of a premium article, which is free for all to read. If the information is hidden behind the words "click here to subscribe," then don't even bother. Websites such as Buckeye Planet, IrishEvy, and MGoBlog are acceptable. However, only information from the articles/interviews/blog posts from these sites are permissible. Any information obtain on one of these sites' message boards should be assumed to be unreliable (even if you yourself trust it). Anything posted on Facebook is private information and should be treated that way.

Disciplinary Action:

Since this is a fresh reminder, everyone gets one freebie. The first time you break this rule, you will have your post deleted and that is it. If you break it a second time, your post will be deleted and you will get a warning. If you ignore the warning and break it a third time, you will receive an infraction.

Remember, these are Scott Wright's rules not mine. We want everyone to still have fun, but we can't keep ignoring the rules of the website.

  • Crazy Recruitment Story

    Apparently, the kid committed to Cal but never had a scholarship in the first place.

      Well it's not at all considered a prank. It's also highly likely that it was a big misunderstanding of your average letters from the schools that feed you garbage. They say it also could be a carefully concocted scheme by the boy, his parents, and his coach.

        Wow that was pretty damn crazy, that school got caught up in the hype and didnt ask enough questions...And I would like to think the kid did that himself, but if he knew he didnt really have a scholarship and he announced it on tv, he would have to know at some point that dream was going to come to an end, you just cant show up at a practice one day

        But at the same time how could he get pranked that bad, and he had no contact over the phone with the coach? Usually you get an offer from a coach or have some conversation with him not just a few letters back and forth, but its out now so that story should take some life out there

            This kid is a tool, he said the guy who was getting the scholarship was Kevin Riley, who happened to be the backup QB. He then went on to insult the rest of his high school class.

                Why would he do such a thing? It doesn't make sense. Why embarrass yourself, family, and school nationally? hahaha

                      I bet the head coach feels like an ass, he probably didnt care to ask he just wanted some tv time...

                          he's an idiot...he was a 2 star guy...nothing spectacular but, he pretty much ruined any future he may have had. He could have been a nice catch for a d1-AA school.

                            Or he could got the JC route and hopefully any remembrance of the story dies down in the span of 2 years, which is a long shot but worth the try.
