NCAA bans hashtags on football fields

USC director of social media Jordan Moore sent the college football segment of Twitter into a frenzy on Wednesday afternoon when he broke this news (and, yes, it is real):

This is yet another example of the NCAA stepping into an area that no one thought needed policing, while a Miami-sized plank remains firmly in both of its eyes. 

But, for those who are still unclear on the NCAA's ruling, we thought we'd run through what is permissible and not permissible among field decorations in the eyes of college sports' governing body.

Okay:

eastern-washington-field

Not okay:

gobluex-large

Okay:

u-of-central-arkansas-field

Not okay:

gohogs-hashtag

After looking at it this way, it's clear why the NCAA felt moved to create this rule. Those hashtags were really distracting.
