    And delivers a beatdown. Hard to imagine the NCAA winning the O'Bannon case now.

    Apparently the NCAA it full of a bunch of idiots, because it suspended the search function.

    The search engine is, I'm sure, purchased by the NCAA -- not built in house -- and intuitive. Any search function worth a damn with match those names to the pages. Type it into Google, and the same stuff will happen. Is google exploiting college athletes?

    I wonder how Jay Bilas stomachs even watching college basketball anymore, all the exploitation he seems to find inherent in it. He's a like a guy at the burlesque, shaking his head over the objectification of women, yelling "if only they wore more clothes, I'd feel better about enjoying this!"

    AL.com's Jon Solomon did the same thing with the Alabama and Auburn official fan stores, with similar results:

    This tweet by Bilas was awesome:

    "Go to http://ShopNCAAsports.com and type "NCAA Executive Committee" in upper right search box, hit enter. This comes up. pic.twitter.com/7mwaNKO3TA

    Remember, they're not supposed to be searching for Johnny Manziel's jersey. They're just supposed to be searching for the jersey of Generic No. 2.

    It provides evidence to Ed O'Bannon's legal team.

    Evidence they don't need at this point but could certainly find without Jay Fucking Bilas if they did.

    But, yeah, he really woodshedded the NCAA....

    Remember, you're not supposed to even say Johnny Manziel's name without flipping Johnny a shiny nickel for the copyright violation.

    NCAA has been pimping so long, it has become part of its culture. Great job Jay.
