This seriously is not from The Onion, even though that's the only logical explanation for this.

A member of a women's golf team at a West Coast Conference school has been sanctioned by the NCAA for washing her car on campus, according to University of Portland basketball coach Eric Reveno.

Reveno tweeted about the violation Wednesday after he learned of it during conference meetings, culminating his message with the hashtag #stopinsanity.

"Just heard about two NCAA violations in WCC. 1) athlete using Univ. water to wash car, 2) coach text recruit 'who is this?'" Reveno wrote.

The WCC school in question self-reported the extra benefits violation to the NCAA, Yahoo Sports! reported. Yahoo also reported the NCAA asked the golfer to pay the school $20, which they said was the value of the water and hose.


The NCAA has had some REALLY dumb sanctions. But, penalizing a student for using water that she didn't pay for to wash her car? Really? Better ban all student athletes from using drinking fountains too unless they put a quarter in first. This is just absurd.

Good god. The NCAA is quite possibly one of the dumbest organizations around. The person that had to deliver the sanction over the car wash could not have done that with a straight face. If he/she did so, they needed to get that on tape. I say it's time to disband the NCAA. Let boosters give players cars, cash, free meals, houses, etc. Make it the Wild West and let the dirtier schools win all the good players.
