OU is getting all Big Brother on their athletic teams and players, both keeping track of their online activities and mandating what they can and cannot do and say on social networking sites. One choice line from the new policy, "Partying, drinking and getting wasted do not qualify as real hobbies or interests." I beg to differ, OU, I beg to differ. Regardless, I understand the need for something like this. The fact that they're monitoring everything that goes on electronically does help defeat the "lack of institutional control" accusation (though it of course does make it harder to claim no knowledge when OU does eventually get caught cheating again, like they always do). And the fact that they have guidelines for the players isn't a bad idea either (Buck Burnette could have used some guidance, but I guess there's no accounting for stupid). It seems more a statement of how byzantine the NCAA rules are that something like this is needed at all, but still. Rules are rules, unless you're OU. As an aside, did you know that OU cheats at the following sports: baseball, wrestling, women's basketball, softball, men's tennis and rowing? I didn't either, but I could have guessed. Also, six more (admittedly minor) football violations!
