Jay Bilas was doing a little snooping around the NCAA's online shop on Tuesday when he discovered something strange -- searching for popular players leads directly to their supposedly generic jerseys:
The search function was later disabled, which Bilas also noted, but the whole thing brings up a legitimate issue. Colleges and the NCAA make hefty profits off jersey and memorabilia sales, while players face penalties and possible bans if they take money for a simple autograph. Bilas thinks it's simple exploitation. Do you?
Go to http://ShopNCAAsports.com , type in "Manziel" in upper right search box, hit enter. This comes up. pic.twitter.com/N7KNvXIu24— Jay Bilas (@JayBilas) August 6, 2013
