    Just saw him in an Atlanta area ad for Gwinnett Medical Center on TV talking about his ACL treatment there. Has clips of him at Norcross HS.

    Uh-oh. This could end up badly if the NCAA sees it.

    As long as he wasn't paid for his endorsement, then I don't think there's a problem.

    The NCAA could find a way to penalize us somehow. :)

    Does it matter? He's just an injury treatment patient - it's not football related. Also I seriously doubt he got paid.

    1.6 million athletes in 1 year?!?!?! That place must be a zoo. That's just over 4383 athletes per day...

    If he was paid, I suspect (but don't know, obviously) it would matter. Since the ad depicts him wearing his football uniform and shows him playing football, I would think receiving money as a paid endorsement for being a football player might be just enough in the NCAA's Draconian policies to make him lose his amateur status.

    However, I'm like you...I highly doubt he received any type of pay for doing the commercial.

    F the NCAA. The sooner they are out of D1 football the better.
