    Apparently Florida State thought so, but the SEC and the NCAA cleared Florida of wrong doing. So is this where we are in college recruiting.....schools ratting out other schools to get ahead? First Fulmer, now Florida State.......

    Seems as though they would have done that at the swamp instead of the Gator bowl

    Instead of getting players to join your program because they want to be there and experience all you have to offer, you have to offer them illegal benefits (ie. Bama). Then, you have to hope one of your enemies...er..rivals...doesn't find out and squeal to the NCAA (ie Tennessee). Trust me, not having to worry about getting involved in such activity (ie Lester Earl) may be Saban's greatest gift to LSU.

    Didn't Mack Brown rat Saban out on having illegal contact with a kid from Evangel? I remember hearing that he couldn't sign with LSU because of it, so he went to Tenn.

    If a coach knows of a violation, don't they have a responsibility to report it?
