Recruit stalker
« on: January 08, 2012, 07:01:04 PM »
We've got a guy harassing our recruits and pretending to be an Arkansas fan.

@callingdemhawgs (Jeff Ferguson) sent tweets to harass DGB, Jonathan Williams and Will Hines.  Got Hines real fired up.  Williams realized it was fake and tweeted the rest.

I'd like to know who the fricker is.  That's a Missouri kid and 2 Missouri decommits from Texas.  Pretty sure it's a Missouri fan.

BTW, the tweets are already deleted.

Ezekiel Ulrey of Kansas City Missouri is the kind of nut that would set up fake accounts to stalk recruits and harass them.  I think it is a viable theory.

Its not deleted.  His handle is @callindemhawgs.  No "g" in there.  Those tweets are still up.

You are right, and now he's tweeting every one of our commits.

I Googled this stuff and found a thread on nobvillehomeofthedregsandsimpletons where this guy was supposedly reported as a spammer, but I guess either Twitter hasn't responded or won't do anything about it. In that thread it also stated that Jonathan Williams has made the other recruits/commits aware of this guy. Whatever the case, whether it's a fan of another team or not, it's pretty sorry.

Just saw this. Look at his followers. Mizzou fan?

This is why recruits should never, ever let anything a "fan" says influence their decision.  Breaking news.....people lie on the internets.

Yup

I bet the Hog fans following him just want to see who he's tweeting.

I've never even been on the twitter website.  Can anyone get info on this cat?  Email address, or something to use to identify the prick?

I doubt that is him.  His follower list was very heavy on Mizzou fans just a few minutes ago.  He is obviously a Mizzou fan.  Probably a message boarder.

This is where he plays now:

Doubting that's him, though.  Seems like a kid who grew up in Toronto and plays pro ball in Canada and plays on their national team would have better things to do.

Here are a few of his Mizzou fans who are following him as of right now, that he hasn't deleted:

@wgrape22

@ReeseJBennett

@mizquadszou

@travishays81

Very interesting that these people all claim to be big Mizzou fans, yet they all managed to follow this guy who has only tweeted to Hog recruits and opened his account hours ago....

Hey College Football Fans... Leave Recruits Alone
WRITTEN BY THE SUBWAY DOMER | 09 JANUARY 2012
Tweet
Over the past several years, social media has critical massed itself 100 times over. Almost everyone you know is either on Facebook, Twitter, Linkedin, or a wicked cocktail mix of the three. This is the new world that we are living in, where information is everywhere and everyone has their opinion that absolutely MUST be heard.

It is within this brand new world where the rules are in a fuzzy shade of gray. Why? Because like most of the internet for the past 15+ years, there are no rules. To be honest, I like having no rules. No rules allows for self-moderation, and self-moderation can lead to an enlightenment of ones own morals, ideas, and personality. Unfortunately, there are thousands upon thousands that are unable to operate within a certain code of conduct within this digital realm that the non-digital world lays out in law and in societal rules. 

Why are we talking about this? Well, because of that "gray" area, people actually think it's acceptable to interact with recruits via social networks. They think it's OK to try and get involved with some 17 or 18 year old high school student. They think it's OK to try and get involved in the lives of kids. This is definitely not "OK."

People, mostly grown men, spend their days trying to contact potential "program changing" high school athletes. Most of these attempts are "harmless" in their minds, but at the root of situation lays the problem. They justify talking to a 17 year old on the internet because they are offering, "wisdom," words of encouragement, and of course advise on where these kids should attend college. It's all innocent and good natured- right?

Wrong. Because it is acceptable in their eyes, it is also "acceptable" to chastise, warn, threaten, and downright get nasty with these recruits when someone else's child makes a decision about their life that they don't like. This, of course, is why social media has become a threat to college football- because it is not right to try and get involved in these kids lives.

The News Tribune in Tacoma, Washington recently published an article speaking to some of this. A lot of the article had to do with message board posters. As unfortunate as the negative comments and the consequences that they have on these message boards are; they are mostly intended for the "boards" themselves and are not a direct attack upon a particular recruit. That doesn't make it right, but it is what it is because for many years this is what has been accepted. We allow poison in our lives.

Now is the time to make the move to strike against this nonsense across the realm of social media. We as fans, bloggers, parents, friends, and members of a more decent society must make the stand against those that would use these platforms to "help" their school/team by chastising kids who may not make the decision for their lives that some grown adults would like.

We have long seen people "friend" recruits on Facebook and then leave nasty messages for all to see. We have seen people on Twitter harass recruits on a daily basis for them to "make up their minds" on the biggest decision of these kids lives. What the Starkville is wrong with these people?

Recently on Twitter, I came across some "fan" of a particular school cuss out a recruit because they "THINK" that the recruit has already chosen a rival school to commit to. It was flat out disturbing. Equally disturbing was "fans" of the same school trying to reach out to the recruit to tell him that this isn't what this particular school was about- blah, blah, blah. They are all, in effect, trying to become recruiters for their institution. This is wrong, and also a NCAA violation.

Notre Dame had a decommitment last night. I am not on Facebook all that much, and I certainly did not "friend" this particular recruit, but i am positive that he has already felt the wrath of those wo felt betrayed. This is what our beloved sport has turned in to. A massive cat fight between fans, recruits, and parents of recruits via social networking. It's sad. We need to take this sport back from the lunatics.

I am proposing a set of standards:

Absolutely NO Facebook. Do not "friend" these recruits or join their "groups." Facebook is much too personal. Even asking to be a friend just to follow what they say is too intrusive.
If you are on Twitter, I think it is OK to follow a recruits account. It's basically public information, so seeing what info is out there is no big deal. However... if a recruit's account is protected, I recommend not following. A protected account needs the approval of the user, which is a lot like Facebook friending. Also, DO NOT INTERACT WITH A RECRUIT FOR ANY REASON. It doesn't matter if you are just saying something like,
"Congrats man! Eastern Michigan needed you and your decision just made my day!" Or,
"Our class is filling up! Still have room at Wyoming for great TE recruits like you. Be a Cowboy and be a LEGEND 4eva!!!"
None of this is OK.
That should be simple enough. Basically, don't interact with someone else's kid. Don't become involved. Don't be a factor- whether good or bad.

We as fans and bloggers can help clean this up by policing our own. Let's help create a culture void of this type of interaction. I am asking all of you to help spread this message. Become co-signers. Simply; retweet, like, copy and paste, link- whatever. Spread the word that this type of behavior is not acceptable. If you want to help your school ,these recruits, and college football- follow these guidelines and let others know that they should do the same!

Sincerely, 

The Subway Domer

Saw a tweet on RD's Twitter feed by someone stating that this guy:
https://twitter.com/MIZ_ZOU12

is the same guy as the douche posing as an Arkansas fan. Makes sense. The tweets sort of look the same and he spends a lot of time trashing Arkansas.
