    Iowa Basketball Recruiting Violation

    Register exclusive: University of Iowa violations tied to Ashton Kutcher, Demi Moore | desmoinesregister.com | The Des Moines Register

    Sounds pretty petty and should be a slap on the wrist...

    My main problem with this is how come it is ok for HB to meet with MJ during his visit to UNC, but this is somehow a violation??

    Re: Iowa Basketball Recruiting Violation

    I'm sure there is a ton of photographic evidence of these violations, since every other commercial seems to be Kutcher and his Nikon Coolpix taking pictures of everyone.

    Re: Iowa Basketball Recruiting Violation

    I do not understand the issue. The kids are not gaining any monetary gain. How is meeting someone illegal? This just makes a slap in the face that everyone is equal. I would comment more but would be moved to the cave.

    Re: Iowa Basketball Recruiting Violation

    So recruits can't even meet and shake hands with someone nowadays? How stupid. Now, had Ashton and Demi handed the kids a few grand or bought them a nice dinner, then there'd be a story here. But simply introducing them? Come on.

    And as others have said, why is it ok for Harrison Barnes to meet Michael Jordan on a visit to North Carolina without anyone thinking twice about it?

    Re: Iowa Basketball Recruiting Violation

    "NCAA rules prohibit potential high school recruits from having any contact with individuals considered to represent a university's athletic interests because of the potential influence boosters can have on the recruiting process."


    So Demi and Ashton have potential influence on recruiting at Iowa, but Michael Jordan has no potential influence on recruiting at NC?

    The NCAA is a joke

    Oh, no, they might be banned from post-season play this year!

    There might be a loophole with MJ, given that he's a former North Carolina player. Perhaps if Demi Moore and Ashton Kutcher were former UIowa players, the loophole would have applied to them, too. Just guessing.

    this. is MJ collecting any kind of paycheck from UNC? that might make him paid ambassador for the university.

    Since when does a ****** bag in a cliche trucker hat and his worn out 80's film star wife have any influence in recruiting. These kids weren't even born when St. Elmos Fire came out.
