    Fuck the NCAA.

    Limit of three per quarter? Make sure you do six.

    And exactly how do they propose to enforce this?

    Pity the poor son of a bitch who has to ride herd on the bloggers. Will there be a platoon of blog police on hand at the Superdome to make sure the assembled horde does not break the quarter quota?

    You have to register your blog to them, so I guess they will have some schlub in Indy monitoring them.

    And I echo J_D!

    The bowls aren't NCAA championship events. :)

    Sorry for the back-to-back posts ... but is there going to be an office of NCAA Blog Compliance? God bless sprawling bureaucracy.

    That's what I was wondering. Are they going to look over your shoulder, or have people look at websites all day?!? Idiots.

    And screw that putting a logo shit on your site. Pay me for the advertising bitch.

    Also in this, is the "so much stuff for 72 hours" clause akin to the NFL's policy. Lawyer up!

    This is ridiculous.

    The way I see it, once something happens at an event, whether it be an NCAA tournament or whatever, it's news and can be reported. I say disregard the rule, blog as much as you want, let them kick you out or whatever. It's our job to report news, no matter how difficult the NCAA wants to make that job for us. I'd rather get kicked out knowing I did my job to the best of my ability than let an outside source dictate news.

    This sorta stuff just makes me sick.
