Would You Be Able To Avoid An NCAA Investigation?

We have chronicled the variety of NCAA investigations over the past year and blamed agents and players for violating NCAA rules and regulations.  Ignorance of the rules and regulations potentially jeopardize student-athletes’ eligibility to play college sports and could harm the educational institutions that the players represent.

The game is called Staying in Bounds, and it was created by three students at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill.
