NCAA says we can’t give away Stephen Johnson masks, and that makes us sad

We thought we had a good thing going for tomorrow’s big game, but the NCAA put a stop to it.

Apparently, we are breaking some kind of rule by giving away masks with Stephen Johnson’s face on them. We ordered a truck load of masks to pass out around the tailgates tomorrow afternoon, but the NCAA said that will not be happening.

It’s unfortunate because we were excited about giving fans a souvenir for the day the streak ends. Turns out, we’re in violation of some rule and we’ll have to keep all of these Stephen Johnson faces for ourselves.

I don’t know what we’ll do with them or where we’ll put them. Christmas gifts for our families, maybe?

    Yet North Carolina can hang banners won by players who can’t even write a coherent sentence. Keep doing you, NCAA.

    THIS is a priority for the NCAA with all of the other crap going on? They’re just a ridiculous institution.

    Could you throw them away in a brand new trashcan at the tailgate party. You can’t help if people get them out of the trash.

    Is there any way you could post the file that you printed out on the website so people can make them themselves?

    Ahhh Yes .. The Ed O’Bannon Rule. You can’t use a likeness of an NCAA athlete without compensating them (which is a violation of NCAA rules). That jerk-off ruined the entire college football and basketball video game platform because he sucked at basketball.

    The NCAA is just upset because they cant make any money off of them.

    Hand them out next year after Stephen Johnson graduates. That should be legal

    You should know that the school and the NCAA are the only ones allowed to exploit the player!

    I’d just sit them on Commonwealth’s curb for trash pickup, you can’t stop people from rummaging through the trash. Just sayin’…

    But how does the National Collegiate A$$HOLE Association feel about 20 years of fake classes?

    “Accidentally” leave them sitting around the tailgating areas

    You can give these away. The NCAA can’t do anything in this situation.

    Next time you may want to check with Sandy Bell before you do something this irresponsible.
