NCAA to texting: RIP

Perspectives on the looming ban are outlined here -- including a passionate Tom Crean.

"It's just another agenda-driven proposition that doesn't make any sense," Marquette coach Tom Crean said. "It's really an insult, I think, to everybody involved - coaches, families and recruits. If you choose not to answer your text, don't answer it."
Tell that to the mother of unsigned prep star Patrick Patterson -- who received "7,000 text messages, 4,000 over the (plan) max" in March!

That'll be $500, please.
