Urban Meyer gets all uppity with the new kids on the block (h/t Team Speed Kills):
STRETCHING RULES: You may have read where Auburn used stretch limos to parade recruits around the state of Alabama. The idea was that the limos would not only appeal to the kids but get Auburn plenty of attention because of the decals on the limos.
The real question here is whether other schools will follow suit or will the NCAA enact a new rule banning their use. We’ve seen the NCAA react to excessive meals and plane trips as well as text messaging. Can this be far behind?
“I think it should,” Urban Meyer told Dooley Noted when asked if the NCAA will get involved. “We’re trying to sell graduation rates and academics and [they’re] trying the sing and dance routine.
“The Florida coaching staff will not be riding around in limos or ripping off our shirts.”
Well, la-de-effing-da. If Gene Chizik had the pipeline to recruiting talent that Meyer enjoys, he wouldn’t have to resort to prom night transportation either.
On the other hand, I can’t argue with the shirt crack. Wild boyz – one more reason why Florida-Tennessee retains its number one ranking on my meteor games list. With room to spare.
