They're a private organization, so they can do pretty much whatever they want re: speech.

Yes, a private organization can regulate speech WITHIN their organization, but that doesn't mean they can tell me, as not a booster or coach, not to tell a kid where I think he should go to school.
I'm just a regular, everyday normal guy,
I can't afford a car, I use public transportation,
I don't mind, I read till I reach my destination,
sometimes a newspaper, sometimes a book,
the money I save, this stuff is off the hook,

They can do it all they want--they just can't enforce it against you.

What this is leading up to is student athletes taking their twitter and FB profiles private.

This wasn't tweets and facebook posts/pages. This was a guy posing as a reporter and calling recruits.
