Can someone link me to the bylaws or give a really quick explanation about where the line is for alums contacting recruits? I've always been a little curious about it.
For example: TomVH used to (maybe still does) run a recruiting website and contacted recruits with questions about their interest in Mich. I could see how one could argue that he's using his (for profit?) website in order to benefit Michigan.
Boosters can't contact recruits. But there is great debate as to the definition of "booster." Some say it's anyone who roots for a team, though I happen to believe that reading is incorrect. Some say it's anyone who donates money to the program. And some say it's not a problem because anyone can do whatever they want... but those people are mostly in the SEC.
Ace is employed as a journalist, so I'm pretty sure he's in the cle ar. For example, ESPN could have Jalen interview MM even though Jalen is much more of a booster than Ace is (or I'm seriously underestimating the amount of money MGo can pay for a reporter/analyst).
It's going to take a while for me to get used to seeing MM and think Mitch McGary, rather than Mike Martin.
I thought about a (NTMM), but I went with the Desmond/Lee Corso philosophy and just said, "aw fuck it". We're gonna have to get used to it someone.
at least one of the campus squirrels has tweeted about it.
I wish Ace luck with this. Had a similar situation happen to me a few years back, fake twitter account by someone pretending to be me, and it took about a month of pestering Twitter and a few rather pointed email exchanges with the twitter folks to finally get them to take it down. That impersonation policy is rather bizarrely enforced, it seems.
i read Aceanbender1's tweets. What a disgusting human being. he mocks Ace's profession in his bio, and then harasses High school kids. Hopefully they do pursue charges of liabel.
