NCAA and Social Media

Posted on February 5, 2012. Filed under: Baseball, Basketball, Football, NCAA Sports, Sporting News | Tags: , , , , , , , , , |

Because of social media like Facebook and Twitter, fans have unprecedented access to the prospects their schools are recruiting. But in many cases, these interactions can constitute NCAA secondary violations when initiated by “representatives of the institution’s athletic interests,” otherwise known as boosters.
Just recently, former Washington All-American Lawyer Milloy might have committed such a violation when he contacted Shaq Thompson on Twitter and wrote that Thompson would “look nice in Purple & Gold,” Washington’s colors.

Thompson, the No. 16 in the ESPNU 150 and the nation’s No. 3 safety, is committed to Cal but is still considering the Huskies.

“The institutions are responsible for monitoring the contact between boosters and prospective student athletes,” said Charnele Kemper, the NCAA’s associate director of academic and membership affairs.

But for university compliance departments, this can be a meticulous, time-consuming undertaking. Even for those athletic departments with enormous resources and large compliance staffs.

For those of us that watch sports religiously and question just about everything from the certain play calls to starting line-up to uniforms… but one position we often second guess is the officials who call the game. We love to second guess officials…

In most cases, these guys, and girls, do attend lots of clinics and special training classes not to mention they are human. Like we don’t make a mistake….

So, we thought that it would be fun for you to take a simple quiz on rules in sports.

Ready? Grab a notepad (or napkin) and take our quiz.  Click here to start!
