In the wake of the uproar, last month the NCAA established some... strange... regulations for live blogging by professional sports reporters at college athletic events:
FootballNot only that, but each blog must display the NCAA logo (what the... %@#&?!?!?) and all blog posts by credentialed journalists must be submitted to "the NCAA Blog Central" (?!?!?).
- Three posts per quarter and one post at halftime
- One post per inning, including extra innings
- Five posts per half, two posts in halftime, two posts per each overtime
Naturally, sports writers are having a field day with this lunacy.
