Yeh Ray It is true that everyone's brain is smaller relative their body. Heck, I read an Alligator's brain is the size of a walnut.Likewise, I believe playing by the rules is correct. Point being is sometimes a new technology or a loophole allows you to bypass rules in place that govern such things as contact with recruits. I call that circumventing rules and the very least questionable ethics, you disagree.Just like demanding the first 6 games be played at home when a series begins is questionable ethicsOr setting up a schedule each year that never involves traveling out of state to play out of conference games is questionable ethics.or dropping your third oldest rival from the annual schedule when they become too tough to handle is questionable ethics and avoidance of the spirit of competition and sportsmanship.Heck, at one time before the 85 rule was put into place there was a legendary coach who deliberately had rosters 8 to 10 deep to keep opponents from getting certain players on the roster was again questionable ethics. The NCAA outlawed that practice as well.All the above are ways to unlevel the playing field to have a better chance at success again pushing the edge of ethics and integrity IMOFrom your comments you obviously disagree. I suggest you read a book on ethics and perhaps you will understand my point since either you don't understand ethical behavior or choose to ignore it. You keep making accusations about me stating you have no ethics or morals in this thread. I have stated nothing in this thread that remotely resembles that statement. Stating such is a lie and again questionable ethics, and yes Ray you have made the personal attacks directly at me in this thread, and now deny this which of course is yet another lie. If you can't discuss things without a personally attacking me perhaps you need to avoid discussing such issues with me.I merely have stated points on what I consider is pushing the envelope of unethical behavior. Judging by your comments you seem to have a different concept of ethics. Hence, I make the suggestion that you read a book on ethics. Perhaps than you will understand my point.
Much shorter & tu the point. Runole can babble for days.
You still don't get it... Read a book on ethicsOh and Ray if you didn't read my post why did you respond?? Hint: Lying is not ethical!! "clear and (conise?)"concise? I have been on topic all along with my opinions of text messaging and the NCAA's move to ban it. Where have I mentioned FSU at all in this thread? It would appear that you are just too sensitive and defensive in my opinion. Just a thought but that points to a guilty conscience on your part and constantly trying bring UF into the conversation. Though the original topic was referring to Urban in its title, my points had only to do with applauding the NCAA's decision and why I supported it.Again my only comment from the beginning: This is a good choice by the NCAA since IMHO those that extensively use text messaging are clearly trying circumvent the rules of recruiting and permissible contacts Truthfully, I believe that this is cheating. It most certainly is intrusive.Again for clarity I have not stated Urban was cheating. I have merely stated that discovering a loophole and a way of circumventing the rules of phone contact with a new technology available indeed pushes the envelope on following the rules of contact by the NCAA. While you apparently approve this way of circumventing rules of contact I don't. Learning to get around rules is something you obviously feel good about from your remarks. You will pardon me if I don't agree with that thought.Again we choose to disagree. Holier than thou?? Just because I value ethics and integrity and not trying to bend rules has no relevance to making such an outragous comment. That you are disgusted that I have these values is a bit disturbing. What do you value?Are you even capable of ever being civil in any discussion??
Ray why do you bother-- seriously is it just entertainment for you?The guy is seething with Gator Envy -- he'll look for anything to try and feel better. Just relish in watching him squirm as he tries to justify to himself of just how the Gators have won 3 NCAA titles -- they are coming off Bball and Football titles and have recruited to only get better while the crappy garnet and gold muddles through mediocrity. It is killing him to know the Blue and Orange is title town and he'll take any string of hope to try and minimize it. And after all is said and done and he spews his venom he'll still have to know GATORS are Champs
