I think it is a balance, if a player tweets a lot they probably text a lot too and might be a preferred method of contact. I would have to wonder if skyping could be on the uptick too since it is kind of a cross between a face to face and a phone call. (I have no idea if our coaches even skype.)
The big issue is the increased fan interaction, both between recruits and the fans of different teams interaction. The big worry is a fake twitter set to undermine a specific team by pretending to be an annoying fan, or just the peer pressure a fan base could produce. (if you watched the buckeye tweets during the whole Wilson thing.) Some kids might like that attention.
Oregon doesn't seem to have a great online presence, but with enough haters I would worry about a USC or Huskie fan faking an account. I've seem some blusterous negative on Oregon tweets and such focused on recruits as it is.
I don't do twitter, though I look at the feed. I hope the Oregon interactions are all polite, or informative like here is a good way to contact Oregons coaches ect.
Is he really a legacy or is it a Jack Bauer joke thats been strung out because we have a poster by the name of QuackBauer who said he was his son(I assumed jokingly)? Who was his Dad?

Follow me because I may just win the internet one day.
I'm pretty sure the legacy thing is in jest that he's the son of Jack Bauer. If Jack B did have a kid, I agree, he would be a great get. I'm sure if I scrolled down more someone already pointed this out
I was the first one to point this out in the post right above yours. I thought I was in the twilight zone for a second there. I think becuase we have had a few parents through here, now someone says they are the Dad, in this case jokingly, and I think people just took it literally.
I did a little research and found out that Andy's fathers name is Craig Bauer. I also read an article on stlhighschoolsports.com that talked about all of the contact he had from fans (especially Missouri fans after he decommitted) and that it was essentially way too much attention for a high school junior to handle.b
Ok, still confused. Is Craig Bauer a Duck Alumni?
After reading through this thread, I am wondering the same thing. Someone who knows please break it down plain for us little people.
I believe there was a Greg (not Craig) Bauer who played WR for Oregon in the 70's.
Why do today what you can put off unt
"Bauer works to become blue chipper" was an article posted 52 days ago on the 247 blue board. It talks a lot about his family and says his father (craig) played college football but doesn't say where. It says he was offered by Iowa state but then was paralyzed in the arm by a vicious hit in a high school football game. I'm thinking he went to a small college. Anyways, with all of the unofficial visits he is taking all over the place his family must be pretty wealthy. It looks unlikely that there is a legacy here so there is little hope at this point. He looks like an SEC lock.

Ya, this kid is not a legacy.
