Re: What's up with the reported violations on the football 


I just saw the replay.  Apparently, two players started a clothing line business and were modeling their apparel on their website.  Per the NCAA:  a student athlete can establish his or her own business provided their name, photograph, appearance, or athletics reputation cannot be used to promote the business. 

The school self-reported the violations in an attempt to get ahead of things.  So far, the NCAA has only asked the players to modify the website.  It seems like a very minor deal, but it's still unnecessary bad press. ohlord

It is old news...happened back in 2013, but since it just appeared in the local papers as they summarize reported violations of ISU, Iowa and UNI,  ESPN picked up on it.

I saw a segment on College Football Live yesterday focused on the Iowa ''violations''.

They did not indicate that it was almost a year old, and made it seem like a recent violation.

Guess they needed filler between SEC discussions.

Only the NCAA and Madden can use player likenesses to make money. God forbid an athlete use his own picture to sell a product that he has created. I know, it would open the possibility for unethically filtering money to athletes and cut into the NCAA's profits.

Profits? As in profit sharing, or shares? Last I heard, the NCAA reinvested every penny into safe guarding the idea of the student athlete, and helping to promote each athlete in their prospective sport, role players and stars alike.

I would be interested to know who the players were and if they had any success with their business venture.
