Oregon WR Josh Huff rips NCAA for shutting down his birthday party

Josh-Huff-OregonOregon wide receiver Josh Huff is the latest person to go after the NCAA for making money off of college athletes. The senior turned 22 earlier this week, and he was planning to celebrate by throwing a party at school this weekend. However, Huff made the mistake of letting his friends make fliers for the bash. That led to the NCAA shutting it down.

In a lengthy rant on Twitter, Huff explained that he spent $1,500 to put the party together and was planning to charge people a small fee to attend so he could make his money back. The fact that he was collecting money makes it an NCAA no-no.

Whether he agrees with the rules or not, Huff should have known he could get himself into trouble by posting fliers. The smart thing to do would have been to have his friends (who are not on the football team) host the party and leave his name out of it. Then he probably wouldn’t have had an issue.

That being said, you know people like Jay Bilas agree wholeheartedly with a number of the points Huff made. The system has plenty of flaws, the senior just should have known better as someone who has been around long enough.
