Syracuse’s latest potential secondary violation hilariously exposes NCAA hypocrisy

Considering how many potential NCAA violations the official twitter account for Syracuse athletics has committed the past few years, you'd swear the school's social media director was a saboteur trying to get the Orange in trouble. The latest mistake came Friday when a tweet from the account urged Syracuse fans to "Get your Tyler Ennis jersey while they are still available!!!" and included a link to a page where No. 11 jerseys could be purchased. The tweet was hastily removed because it would appear to violate NCAA rules forbidding schools to make money off an athlete's likeness. (Yahoo! Sports)
