Hawaii coach Nick Rolovich tweeted on Friday that he believes some of his players were being recruited by Oregon State.
Several Rainbow Warriors players were sent packages addressed to a Hawaii university building and contained invitations to Oregon State's spring game as well as pamphlets touting the football coaching experience at the school.
Needless to say, Rolovich did not match the enthusiasm contained within the invitations.
My apologies for our players not being able to attend your Spring game. Ours was the same day, bad timing. Quick question, in the 203 years of coaching, none of you realized you couldn’t actively recruit another school’s players? Sent to campus? #leakydam #sloppybeavers pic.twitter.com/2djcmgFbLH— Nick Rolovich (@NickRolovich) May 4, 2018
He also had some comments on a headline written by a media outlet in the Beavers’ neck of the woods.
Rolovich tagged the OSU Compliance, NCAA, Pac-12 Compliance and Football Scoop accounts in his initial tweet, along with Barstool Sports. He also threw in a LaVar Ball tag for whatever reason, which makes no sense to us, but we'll see if Ball has anything to say on the matter.
Hawaii and Oregon State are set to play a home-and-home series in 2019 (at Hawaii) and 2021 (at Oregon State). This dust-up will definitely make things a little more interesting.
