The NCAA has declared that Mo'ne Davis' appearance in a Chevy World Series commercial, for which she was financially compensated, will not affect her amateur status and future eligibility. The NCAA is okay with this young athlete accepting endorsement $$$$. So how come that same NCAA is going ballistic investigating the possibility that FSU QB Jameis Winston may have signed football memorabilia and received $$$$ for doing so? If found to have done this, Winston will receive harsh sanctions and likely lose his college eligibility. The NCAA is just fine with some athletes being paid for the use of their image or signature but looks to destroy the careers of others for doing the same? And while on the subject of the NCAA and fairness, Mark Emmert, does a congratulatory phone call to a 7th grader warrant a secondary rules violation?
