    I'm not a fan of college football, but I gotta wonder, what NCAA rule does it violate?

    1. The money isn't from a recruiter or pro team, it's from a contest.

    2. Being that the prize is being paid by the golf course & having nothing to do with his football skills, it's not like he'd be a paid athelete. Two totally unrelated sports.

    3. It's not a gift he'd be accepting. It's a prize for a hole-in-one.

    Can one of you college sports gurus clue me in?
    Well winning money technically makes you a professional. My dad hit a hole in one a few years back for 10,000 dollars, and that technically made him a professional golfer.

    I think the NCAA rule is that you can't be a professional athlete and compete in amateur sports, so he's screwed out of the dough.

    IT'S A PRIZE!!! Has nothing to do whatsoever with him playing football. Suppose he went out and gambled and won $10,000 at the craps table. Could he not keep that. Or how about winning the Publishers Clearhouse sweepstakes.
    This kind of crap makes me sick from the NCAA.

    If they don't have the rule, the "contest" or similar "contests" could be rigged for college athletes to "win" as a way of giving them money for attending a certain college. Gotta close the loopholes so that their amateur status is preserved...otherwise, we should just start paying ALL college athletes!

    Where I'm from it's a little hard to rig a hole-in-one on a golf course! :wink:
