02:17 PM ET 01.28 | A pair of Florida International players brought a recruit to a strip club - and then made the mistake of Tweeting about the incident afterwards.

The players - defensive back Demarkus Perkins and defensive tackle Isame Faciane - Tweeted at each other from accounts that have since been deleted, saying that "The recruit was 2funny at strip club tonight" and that "buddy had this look on his face", including some comments about the race of certain strippers.

Needless to say, this is probably against some NCAA regulation against what you're allowed to do while hosting recruits, although there has been no word on potential punishments.

When FIU finally realizes their acute need for a new AD, I'll remind them that Hamilton's available.

They figured since UM got away with it, why not. They just couldn't afford the yacht to go with it.

And who says some jocks lack the mental capacity to attend college?

Number one who paid for the night out, number two you are a small school with low income, so you cannot afford to be place on probation and lose out on big pay days by playing big name schools for their tune ups games.
