The NCAA’s Football Rules Committee issued a bulletin to football officials that appeared to come through ArbiterSports, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the NCAA which handles official scheduling among other services. The bulletin talks about
Rule 1-2-1-(f) Rule 1-2-1-(h) of the Football Playing Rules which covers advertising and has this to say about social media:
All other items, including social media designations such as URL’s and hashtags, are prohibited.
So no hashtags. One problem: Rule 1-2-1-(f) is included in this heading:
Administrative rules that may be altered by game management without mutual consent include:
1-2-1-e-g, i and j So you cannot have a hashtag on the field. Unless you are the home team and really want one.
And Rule 1-2-1-(h) cannot be changed by game management or mutual consent of the teams.
I apologize sincerely for the error.
