    how so? If booze is such a terrible thing that student athletes (of legal drinking age) can't have endorsement deals with booze companies, then why should it be allowed (and allowed to be advertised) in the stadiums and arenas where those student athletes perform?

    (there might be drugs and hookers in the stadiums too, but not quite as obvious)

    not all collegiate athletes are below the age of 21

    It pretty much is. Steer clear of booze, drugs and hookers and you're good to go. Kids are smarter than that though, we need to give them more credit and know that they are going to make the right decisions as to what they put their face on.

    The UNI NIL policy states: "Student-athletes may not promote products or services that would violate applicable laws, NCAA or conference rules, University policy or university contracts."

    Surely there is some definition, criteria, or examples of "university policy" to give meaning to the statement? It can't truly be a wild west situation, can it?

    It's the wild, wild west. Every school is making their own rules and the only things that are not going to be approved are your obvious ones. The school is going to let kids make money if they at all possibly can.

    As far as your example, I guess they could but why would the North Carolina players take that deal? Kids are smart. They've watched pro athletes and they know how to market themselves.

    So, what are the actual "NCAA or conference rules, University policy or university contracts?"

    There are bound to be all sorts of companies (and players) that try to bend the rules. For instance, can North Carolina State hire North Carolina basketball players to refer to them as the "second best program in the state" (with a not-so-subtle shot at Duke).

    Booze - no

    There's already been warnings sent out to a ton of kids who signed with Barstool and had to redo those deals because Barstool has a gambling side to them.

    my guess is: no, no (although if the university can advertise beer perhaps the student athletes can too), definitely not, and maybe but the university would probably discourage that

    I was kinda just hoping the letter would just be "have fun, don't break the law." Whatever it takes to get more talent to CF.
    my impression was this letter just summarizes the restrictions already in place to help student athletes stay in compliance with the NCAA eligibility regulations, copyright/trademark laws, and the like. I don't think it really adds any additional restrictions.
