Stupid NCAA Rule of the Day, No. 2

On one hand, a student-athlete cannot use his/her own likeness to promote their own business, but on the other hand:

12.5.1.1 Institutional, Charitable, Education or Nonprofit Promotions. A member institution or recognized entity thereof (e.g., fraternity, sorority or student government organization), a member conference or a noninstitutional charitable, educational or nonprofit agency may use a student-athlete’s name, picture or appearance to support its charitable or educational activities or to support activities considered incidental to the student-athlete’s participation in intercollegiate athletics, provided the following conditions are met: (Revised: 1/11/89, 1/10/91, 1/10/92)

In short, as long as you are raising money for the member institution, the member institution can pimp out your name and likeness as much as it wants.  You, however, can’t do the same to make money for yourself.
