NCAA Bans Hashtags on CFB Fields
May 1st, 2013| by Lost Lettermen
The masters of minutiae at the NCAA who are infamous for bans on things like spreads on bagels for recruits have come up with a new bizarre rule that has left everyone scratching their heads: No Twitter hashtags allowed on college football fields.
Would love to see a member institution thumb their nose at the stale NCAA monarchy & just spell out “hashtag” instead of using the symbol.

Psst…NCAA teams…just call it a pound sign instead of a hashtag. The NCAA will never figure it out. You’re welcome.

Not to get too deep, but that NCAA/hashtag thing is just a microcosm of an org that’s become completely out of touch with the modern world.
