Hopefully. Coaches and recruits spend way too much time doing this, imo.

I dont see what the problem is. Who WOULDNT love to get 20 text messages from Kelvin Sampson a day? :)

The answer is 23 minutes...

The question is: how long before K. Sampson gets slammed.:lmao:

I certainly hope they do ban this practice! It's very wrong, and puts the PSA in a very awkward position.

Any school that texts J will be dropped from consideration. My sister HATES this stuff.

Text messaging is such an annoying fad. If you want to tell someone something, just dial the number.

I asked my 22 year old son the other day if he had a phone number of a certain person I needed to talk to and with whom I knew he had been in contact. His reply? "Oh, Dad, telephones are sooo your generation." I think what he meant by that was that text messaging was the preferred way to communucate these days. Shouldn't be surprised. He is having a hard time living within the 1,000 text messages allowance per month.

For me, texting is great for communicating with people during classes, but that's about all I use it for.

This kind of smarts is exactly why GU has greater pastures ahead. Anyone have a Marquette or Memphis area code on their phone?

Does it go like this? "What's the ANSR to #4? #8 and #14. THKS. U RK"

I do - but wouldn't have any idea how to text in the proper lingo.

Coaches use the Text messaging as a means to get around the no-calling rule. A player can call a coach whenever he wants - a coach has only a limited time frame when they can call a player. Sooooo, coach text's a kid saying "call me so we can talk" and everything is a-ok according to NCAA.

This practice does need to go away.
