You are correct that there is more to the rule


All kinds of clarification. I think the rule specifically tries to clarify that of course there are specific benefits obviously permissible to athletes -- such as items sanctioned in many instances by the NCAA. Otherwise, the mere fact that that an athlete receives practice t-shirts or any shoes or bowl memorabilia would be a violation in itself since those are not given to other students. This is obviously not the case or the point of the rule.

But as you note -- the language in this rule has been the basis for not allowing the athletes to then take those items and monetize them because that action not something available to other students. It is an interesting point to think about any distinction between athletes who do this while using their name/likeness/school vs. others who may be trying to do it anonymously. My guess is that while that is a distinction, I doubt it is one that really makes a difference in rule interpretation since the athlete would still be profiting in a way not available to other students.

** Just commenting on the rule. Absolutely no idea what may have happened in this case and truly don't want to speculate.

I do happen to (strongly and respectfully) disagree with the notion (that I think you fairly strongly support) that all of this highlights the stupidity or unfairness of the system and that athletes should be able to monetize certain things such as their likeness, etc... But that is a different philosophical discussion where people are going to continue to agree to disagree, although I'd guess that will play out with some changes in the coming years.
