Telling him how to position himself and what to look for are definitely X's and O's.
Doesnt have to be a set play to be considered X's and O's. Certainly could have drawn something on a board explaining it with X's and O's of you wanted to[/quote]

While I doubt anything Chavis is doing is against the rules, Orgeron wasn't officially recruiting for LSU like Chavis is for A&M.
