Saving the thumbs of hundreds of top high school athletes last Thursday, the NCAA banned coaches from text-messaging recruits, the Minnesota Daily reports. While the old guidelines limited phone calls, E-mail, and personal visits, the new rules also address and eliminate communication through texts, along with video phones, video conferencing, and social-networking sites like Facebook.

Backers of the ban saw texting as a loophole around recruitment rules, while others were concerned that it was too intrusive and costly for some student athletes, who can receive up to 100 text messages a day, sometimes at 15 cents a pop.--Alison Go
