When Georgia season-ticket holders received their passes for this fall’s games, they also got a little something extra in the mail from athletic director Greg McGarity. UGA’s AD reminded the school’s backers of “the important matter of NCAA compliance:”
“(Supporters) can have NO interaction with any prospective student-athletes, nor can members of The Georgia Bulldog Club do anything for any current student-athletes. If we just remember those two things, we will go a long way in avoiding any NCAA violations in this area of our program.”
That’s an extremely smart play by McGarity and it’s one that more and more athletic directors across the country are making. Arizona (and former Mississippi State) AD Greg Byrne recently asked Wildcat fans to report any possible rules violations to the school’s compliance department. There’s nothing wrong with getting proactive.
