South Carolina: No Wrongdoing Between Clowney, Jay Z

South Carolina’s compliance office has finished its review and found nothing wrong with the relationship between defensive end Jadeveon Clowney and Jay Z.


South Carolina began to look into the relationship between Clowney and Jay Z, who represents Roc Nation Sports, after reports surfaced that Clowney was being pursued by the famous rapper. Clowney posted a photo of the story (which has since been deleted) on his Instagram account on Monday.

There’s nothing wrong with Clowney having contact with Jay Z or any other agent. There would only be an issue if Clowney were to accept any benefits or agree to sign with anyone once his playing eligibility has ended.

South Carolina was smart to check on the situation as soon as it became public. The school would be wise to continually check on Clowney because of the celebrity status he will continue with him during the rest of his college career.

Obviously I am glad to hear this, though in hindsight this seems to be a non-story. Thanks for being one of the only news outlets to put in the headline "communication within itself is not a violation of rules." And to not write a big scare story when there wasn't one to write. (Though this would probably have driven page views)

What this did raise in my mind is how absurd some of the NCAA rules really are. Don't get me wrong, I understand the amateur model, and know that things become a slippery slope, but these rules confine athletes more than their student peers that are going into other professional fields. As a university student I went to countless recruiting dinners and traveled for recruiting functions with various potential employers. I never thought once that I would pay my own tab. But we expect these guys to not be able to have a dinner purchased for them? Seems a bit absurd. (I'm thinking of the UNC guys here, that got hammered with violations for that trip to Miami).

    Any recomendations on how to start a blog for teens?

  3. I have some question

    What are your standards of success for a blog? Readership? Quality? Is there a relationship between readership and quality?.. What did people with successful blogs do to make them successful? Was it a kind of “if you build it, they will come” thing?…
