I don't know if there is anything new here, but this was just posted by Kim Callicoatte, our compliance person:

"A booster should never contact a prospect to encourage him to attend UMass."
"Jack didn’t have any envy in him," Calipari said. "He was the greatest coach to ever coach here."

I really don't mean this to pile on, it's just a statement of fact, but she also tweeted at Niles' new account "@UMassRecruiting/Never Stop Recruiting" and told him to read the guidelines...

You have to think something either happened, or the school is monitoring Twitter very closely (which honestly is not a bad idea).

I've been guilty of doing some of the things in those guidelines, I won't pretend otherwise. Though given the fact that the NCAA Compliance person at the school is going out of her way to tweet the regulations out we should all be very careful about using Twitter in regards to these kids right now.

^ As I understand it, yes something new precipitated it, but nothing significant and it's nothing to worry about. No need to get into it here, PM if you want to know.

Done, though you might have it set not to accept them?
