I regret to tell you that as a Notre Dame fan, I have joined Facebook groups and made a Twitter account that follows Notre Dame football players and recruits. From my involvement in these sites, I have become aware that there is a number of potential recruiting violations that happen on a consistent basis. There is a Notre Dame Facebook group that you may be aware of- "Bang Bang Notre Dame Gang." It at one point had recruits involved- that is no longer the case. Apparently unsigned recruits can not be a part of the group, only signed players. Louis Nix is an administrator on the site and manages it very well. That said, it is not humanly possible to stop the madness that goes on within the group. A good number of people in the group negatively represent the University and anyone- including recruits- can view it. The group is reckless and has caused Nix frustration. In the aftermath of Aaron Lynch, it has become evident that simply because a player is enrolled does not mean that we can neglect their morale. The group largely has a negative impact on current players and potential recruits. The second, and more dangerous potential violation is happening on Twitter. Three individuals, with Twitter names of @j_grubl1, @NDFister and @Star69ND CONSTANTLY tweet at recruits, almost to the point they badger them. The content of their tweets would, to my understanding, make them boosters for the University. The contact with recruits may be a violation, and with the situation going on at Ohio State, it is my feeling that this is worth checking out. Better to be safe than sorry. I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but I believe vigilance on the part of the fan base will help ensure Notre Dame's good standing with the NCAA. I am not going to tell you how to do your job, I just recommend that the compliance department look into these matters and do as they seek fit. Thank you for your time, and congratulations on the great service you provide the University.
You do a truly fantastic job.
