    So please don't freak out and start playing junior compliance enforcer when we see this starting from CU coaches. :p

    A little more on this...

    "An athletics department staff member may take actions (e.g., "like," "favorite," republish, "tag," etc.) on social media platforms that indicate approval of content on social media platforms that was generated by users of the platforms other than institutional staff members or representatives of an institution's athletics interests."

    NCAA's new policy for everything seems to be "we're lazy so we're just going to let this happen". I mean what could seem more like blatant rule-breaking than letting millions of fans know and be able to tweet at who they're targeting?

    I don't blame them, though. I mean, how do you expect them to realistically police every coach and recruit on social media?

    Rival fans will gladly do that for the NCAA Or in CU's case, the own fans.

    Except that it would be damn easy for me to set up a Twitter account where I impersonate a Nebraska fan in order to get them into trouble. The anonymity of social media makes it impossible to police. Plus, it's simply not fair. A university's compliance department has no ability to police thousands of fans.

    Exactly. I actually applaud the NCAA for making this move. It is absolutely impossible to police it, and handing out arbitrary recruiting violation punishments for it would be ridiculous.

    Coaches never broke this rule. It was too public for them to break. They're not idiots and their compliance offices aren't idiots, no one cheats publically. So even if it can't really be enforced, removing it only opened the floodgates on something that wasn't even being routinely broken.
