    "I can guarantee you Coach Bowden is not on a webcam."

    Nick Saban is using technology and Bobby Bowden condemned it when his son Jeff was fired. Seems that the Bama coach is using webcams to talk to prospective recruits. I am going to go out on a limb and say that Bobby Bowden probably does not know what a webcam is.

    Saban as has been reported is one of a few coaches currently that is using video conferences to chat with recruits because they can't meet in person. Fellow Southeastern Conference rivals Les Miles of LSU and Phillip Fulmer of Tennessee are also using the Internet tool. Saban said he speaks to "four or five" recruits a day on the Web when he's in the office.

    The use of a webcam is ok with the NCAA. "We have a rule, and it's been in place for awhile, that Webcams and video conferences are considered telephone calls," NCAA spokeswoman Stacey Osburn said. "We don't see it as a violation. It would just be subject to rules we have regarding recruiting and telephone contact."

    Although it may be cutting edge technology for football recruiting, don't look for Bobby to be on cam anytime soon. "I can guarantee you Coach Bowden is not on a Webcam," Florida State football SID Elliott Finebloom said.
