Webby Fires Back at Zook; Zook Coming to Town

That Saban Rule is getting plenty of ink. After Illinois Coach Ron Zook last week wondered about the ethics between college football coaches and recruiting Web sites, the head of one site has fired back:

Writes Bobby Burton of Rivals.com: "This new rule has nothing to do with Rivals.com; it's not our job to recruit players, nor is any writer paid to recruit players to a school. It's our job to report about recruiting. Instead, the new rule has everything to do with your profession's inability to follow rules."

By the way, another way around the rules for some coaches is to conduct coaching clinics on high school campuses. Zook and offensive coordinator Mike Locksley, who have mined the D.C. area for plenty of talented players the past few years, will hold such an event on Thursday at Theodore Roosevelt High.
