Jalen Rose wants the Banners up

Mary Sue Coleman was quoted in the Michigan Daily saying she doesn't think the banners removed from Crisler Arena (not Center) because of the Ed Martin scandal "will ever go back up."

Jalen Rose responded via tweet (apparently I'm not blocked anymore)

I don't think there is much of a case for putting those banners back up. All those records/results have officially been vacated, so it would be ridiculous for M to reclaim NCAA finalist, NIT or Big Ten Tournament Champions again. The only way those banners should go back up is like this:

To show the shame associated with those banners. So we never forget!

What is Twitter?

So, the NCAA doesn't allow Twitter comments about recruits by current players or anyone associated with a Uni.  They, supposedly, think it is 'broadcasting', as texting the recruit is OK.

Then, the AD of a University Tweets to an athlete at another school, and everyone is up in arms because it was a direct message.  Some say it would have been OK, if he had just commented on it and not made it sent to him "personally".

Twitter is confusing.
