Quick question to fellow Terps. Read that UConn is finally getting some official heat for their apparent recruiting impropriates. As I recall Gary and Calhoun are not the closest of buddies. Do you remember the origins of their disagreements? Didn't UConn grab a touted Terp recruit with a somewhat shady offer? Inquiring minds want to know.

The Rudy Gay recruitment was a big one. Here's how that one is currently written up on Gay's wikipedia entry:

Gay's college recruitment and decision to attend the University of Connecticut over the University of Maryland were controversial.[2][3] Gay had expressed a desire to attend Maryland and said that he grew up rooting for the team, but he ultimately chose UConn. Because of the heavy involvement of an AAU coach and a high school coach, there was the appearance of impropriety, although no NCAA recruiting violations were discovered.[4] The NCAA adopted the eponymous "Rudy Gay clause" after UConn paid $25,000 to schedule a game against the Beltway Ballers, an ad hoc AAU team that consisted of Gay's former teammates.[5] Although it violated no standing rule at the time,[6] media observers and Connecticut staff considered it directly connected to the recruitment.[7] According to individuals close to Maryland head coach Gary Williams, the recruitment demonstrated that rule bending is often necessary to secure highly touted players, which Williams said he is unwilling to do, even at the expense of recruiting.[4]
