    One of the Sooners' primary football recruiters made a boo-boo.
    By Bud Elliott - College Editor and Analyst


    Feb 21, 2012 - Oh, the perils of social media. College coaches probably wish they could just go back to the days of U.S. Mail and the telephone. Oklahoma coach Jay Norvell likely does, after he apparently failed to understand the difference between tweeting at a recruit and sending the recruit a direct message. The direct message feature of Twitter is private, but tweeting at an unsigned prospect is both public and a potential NCAA violation, though minor. Let's take a look at Norvell's tweets:

    I just think it is funny no one has bothered to take his phone number out. Could be an entertaining series of phone calls.

    Sounds like our boy Jay could use some cat facts.

    If you are idiotic enough to send your phone number out in twitter, you get what you deserve.

    I think we should let Tini do the honors on this one.

    D3H - yes, cat facts needs to happen. I think if it were a nub or U$C coach, I would do it myself. I just can't bring myself to care enough about the Sooners to go through that trouble though.
