@kysportsradio: NCAA absurdity: Randy Sanders violated an NCAA rule by texting a recruit to cancel a visit bc Sanders' father died.
Of course, I doubt anything will happen to Kentucky's offensive coordinator, because any punishment for this "violation" would create quite the backlash in the media. But the simple fact that, by rule, this incident constitutes a violation is an embarrassment for the NCAA.
Wouldn't it make more sense for the NCAA to allow coaches to contact recruits in order to cancel visits in this and similar situations? If it existed, this wouldn't make the news.
