Message from LSU Compliance regarding Message Boards


I received this email today from the LSU Athletic Department. We have had prospective student-athletes posting on here, and the message below states that we cannot allow that anymore.

quote:

Please see the note below from LSU Associate AD for Compliance Bo Kerin regarding message boards and NCAA rules regarding communication on those sites with fans and prospective student-athletes. We ask in an effort to educate or fans that you please post the following message to your site.

As we prepare for a new athletic year, the LSU Athletic Department is issuing the following advisory regarding NCAA rules and asking operators of online message boards to please share the following message with their members:

As we begin the 2008-09 academic year, the LSU Athletic Department would like to take this opportunity to remind you that representatives of LSU's athletics interests, or "boosters," are prohibited from engaging in conversations with a prospect, or "recruit." Please be aware that NO written, telephonic or in-person communication is permitted between a recruit and a booster of an NCAA institution regardless of the medium. Please note that anyone who encourages a recruit to attend LSU is automatically considered a booster. Many believe that they are not a booster because they do not contribute financially to the University. However, NCAA rules specify that any individual who assists in the recruitment of prospects is considered a "booster."

Please be cognizant of these rules and refrain from engaging in chat room sessions, posting messages on a recruit's Web page or engaging in "Q & A sessions" with recruits on message boards. By avoiding these activities, you will be assisting LSU in maintaining compliance with NCAA rules.

Thank you for your cooperation in this matter and for your continued support of LSU Athletics!

GEAUX TIGERS!

wow so when recruits come on the board, identify themselves and want to talk to LSU fans we are supposed to ignore them and not reply?

So athletic department staff are the only ones who can convince a recruit to come to LSU?

Chicken, you should probably sticky this on the recruiting board. I know there are a lot of folks over there that rarely come to the rant that won't see this if it isn't there.

Thanks NCAA. Another stupid rule, that they will never be able to enforce.

this is all welll and good but how would one know if the person is unidentified???? We wouldn't so that means we are guilty until proven innocent. When they cannot get the North and South ends correctly printed on the ticket backs it makes me wonder............

No. Apparently not.


. . . . unless you buy his family a $757,500.00 home in California, then it's OK.

I believe that also pertains to the "Myspace Stalkers" that like to get on recruits friends lists.

This is the dumbest thing ever. Why can't the recruits talk to us? Makes no sense.
