More UW violations

An article on the SeattlePI.com details how UW violated a a rule when recruiting Desmond Trufant. They had him run onto the field with smoke and noise, which is explicitly against bylaw 13.6.7.9. Of course, he committed to UW after the visit. Ok, maybe its no big deal. The article even says it would be classified as a secondary violation, if that.

  But here is another violation that UW routinely does that I don't think people know about. A family friend of mine is the senator from my hometown. I won't use his name. When he was first elected recently, he, like many other representatives, was contacted by UW and WSU. Both schools offered him a trip to watch a football game from the president's luxury box. WSU said per NCAA rules you will have to pay for your ticket and parking. UW said they would pay for his ticket, parking and food, which is against NCAA rules. Is this a huge deal? No, but it shows how UW cuts corners and breaks the small rules when they can. Maybe they land Trufant because of it, maybe not. Maybe they get preferential treatment by state representatives, maybe not. But why should they get that opportunity?
