A Rock Hill, South Carolina business might have landed Gamecock stars Jadeveon Clowney and CC Whitlock in hot water with the NCAA. Club Cascade is using photos of both players to promote its “Christmas X-Mas Eve Explosion.” That’s a no-no.
The poster — photo at left, click the headline to enlarge — reads as follows:
X-MAS EVE Explosion
HOSTED BY CAROLINA GAMECOCKS OWN
CEE CEE WHITLOCK
& JADEVEON ‘DOO DOO’ CLOWNEY”
Jadeveon “Doo Doo” Clowney? Good luck living that one down, Doo Doo.
As you probably know, it is a secondary violation for an athlete’s name or photo to be used to promote a business. The State reports that Carolina compliance officials are “looking into” the poster.
Most likely, South Carolina compliance officials will tell “Cee Cee” and “Doo Doo” to avoid the party and they’ll then send a cease and desist letter to Club Cascade in the hopes of keeping Clowney and Whitlock eligible for the Capital One Bowl.
Whitlock is a senior defensive back. Clowney was the SEC’s Freshman of the Year from his defensive end spot and he also made several freshman All-American teams.
