MSU Compliance Should Stay out of Social Media


The other day I was listening to an interview with MSU compliance director Bracky Brett. There was a long conversation about monitoring social media. Mr. Brett seemed stressed and disillusioned about the growing industry of social media and its effects on recruiting.

You can listen to that interview here.

Here’s what I would suggest: get off social media and let it be.

MSU compliance seems hell bent on making sure everything is reported, even if the NCAA doesn’t care. I reported this blatant violation in January – Michael Oher tweeting recruits that they should come to Ole Miss.

What was done about that? Nothing. When Kyle Veazey was digging up dirt on OM over the summer I asked him if this violation was reported and he said it hadn’t been. This wasn’t just some random fan – it was a guy who was about to play in the Superbowl, who had been on billboards and had a movie made about him.

MSU compliance has got to take a hint and just worry about bigger things. No one is paying attention to people interacting with recruits on social media. What’s more, these recruits are asking for “love” – they want fans to interact with them and tell them how great they are. While other schools don’t seem to care, MSU is scouring the internet for violations.
