So you really want to unleash college kids to promote stuff
Wow that would turn out great
They use babies in advertising. They use young kids in advertising. And, they use celebrities in advertising. They use athletes who win medals in the Olympics in advertising. It's ok for them, but not ok for a college athlete?
Agreed. Let's boycott TTMW and all related activities. Seriously.
Something else to consider in all of this is the use of former players by agents, memorabilia brokers, snake oil salesmen, etc... in helping to attract an audience of current players. Tough enough to police outsiders without them getting help from former players who have the ability to influence younger guys.
Instances like SWATS make-up probably about 10 percent of the things that go across a compliance officer's desk. For every case like this, there are nine others we never hear about.

Christopher Walsh covers Alabama football for BamaOnline, 247Sports, and is the author of 18 books.

Excellent Post, Travis....on a lighter note...I WANNA MOAT, I WANNA MOAT!!
My daughter played on a high school soft ball team that almost always went to the state playoffs...in the summer she played little league. Some of the parents on the little league teams were so much worse than playing teams from other schools through the playoffs and state championship games. I used to ask sometimes when she was playing in the summer leagues..."Where am I suppose to pick up my daughter's pay check? This has to be a pro league, right?" LOL
