NCAA bans use of social media hashtags on college football fields

May 7, 2013

NCAA bans use of social media hashtags on college football fields By eCampus News staff and wire reports May 7th, 2013 Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window) Throughout its history, the NCAA has taken a beating from college football fans (as well as other college sports fans) and deservedly so. Over the years, they’ve made some ridiculous decisions while turning a blind eye to the blatant cheating that goes on in college sports, at least when it comes to major programs (they haven’t had much trouble punishing the minor programs), Rant Sports reports. Now, instead of trying to find ways to stop the illegal benefits from following, restore the integrity of college sports, and protect the status of the amateur athlete, they’ve taken up more “important” matters. Yesterday, it was announced the NCAA is now banning the use of  social media hashtags, most commonly used on Twitter and Instagram, on college football fields. Less than two years ago, the Mississippi State Bulldogs were the first to make college football more social media friendly for its fans by painting #HailState in their endzone prior to their rivarly game with the Ole Miss Rebels. Soon after, other schools followed: The Arizona Wildcats painted #BearDown onto their field and the Michigan Wolverines have #GoBlue on theirs. North Carolina State has #gopack printed across their 50-yard-line while #GoHogs is painted on the Arkansas Razorbacks‘ turf.
