Barry Jacobs has
a column about technology and recruiting, which as you know has been a theme
around here for a bit. Barry, who adopted the internet habit far more quickly
than a lot of his colleagues, talks about the NCAA potentially outlawing e-mail
but neglects to mention instant chat programs like AOL and ICQ. If the
NCAA did ban them, unlike a lot of other conversations, these tend to leave
tracks. It's almost impossible to delete files completely, unless you know what
you are doing, and most coaches aren't that savvy. Not yet, anyway.
Kudos to Jacobs for bringing it up.
