Seminoles Turn to Hard-Cell Plan

If Florida Governor Jeb Bush decides to run for president, he might have some explaining to do to voters of New Jersey. Bush is the latest to take advantage of a loophole in NCAA rules that coaches have been abusing to no end: the text messaging of recruits. Bush took time from his schedule to send a text message to Myron Rolle, a hotshot prep defensive back from New Jersey. He did it on behalf of Florida State. One has to wonder what Gator and Hurricane fans have to think about that. Bush's effort appeared to pay off though, as Rolle is expected to sign Wednesday with the Seminoles. The text messaging issue no doubt just moved up a notch or two when the NCAA meets to review its recruiting regulations (registration).

Much ado about nothing. Myron has been enrolled at FSU for a month now. It's not like he's going to sign an LOI for someone else...

Sending text messages like this on the taxpayers' dime? Guess the governor of Florida has nothing better to do now that Terry Schiavo has passed.
