A restaurant in South Carolina has amped up their menu by selling items named after some of the most popular college football players in the nation. Problem is, it’s against NCAA by-laws and the players didn’t give their permission.
From the (South Carolina) Post-Courier:
On Wednesday, a fan tweeted a photo of the menu at Daniel Island Grille, clearly displaying an item called “Tajh Boyd Chicken Quesadillas” priced at $8.99. The photo made its way from social media to a Sporting News blog post.
Bylaw 188.8.131.52 of the NCAA rulebook prohibits the use of student-athletes’ names or pictures without knowledge or permission.
As of Saturday night, the reigning ACC Player of the Year’s name is still attached to a Mexican dish on the menu distributed to customers.
He’s not the only active collegian on there. Also available for purchase is “Clowney’s Turkey Avocado Wrap,” also $8.99, along with the “Sammy Watkins Reuben,” branded as a new item for $9.99.
