The NCAA man. Leave it to the NCAA to not have any clue how to act in time of crisis. I mean Trevor Lawerence and his wonderful girlfriend actually had the audacity to use their image and likeness to raise money during a global pandemic. The audacity these kids have. Here comes the big bad NCAA and decides that they had enough of these good deeds and they had to shut it down.
People around the world are searching for ways to help make a difference as the coronavirus outbreak continues to cause sickness and death, and change the way humans go about everyday life.
Clemson star quarterback Trevor Lawrence and his girlfriend Marissa Mowry, who plays soccer at Anderson University, tried to do what they could to help coronavirus victims, but NCAA rules prohibited them from going through with their plan.
Lawrence and Mowry started a GoFundMe fund-raising page for coronavirus victims Monday afternoon, but it was shut down the same day after raising $2,670. Mowry said through a video on her Instagram account that they were forced to deactivate the page. A Clemson official confirmed that Lawrence and Mowry were not allowed to have the GoFundMe account active due to NCAA rules that prohibit using name, image and likeness for crowd funding. The State
I can’t believe Trevor Lawrence had the audacity to be such a good guy. Him and his girlfriend broke NCAA rules. You can’t do that. We all know that.
Look at those two. They are rule breakers. HORRIBLE. In all seriousness I hate the NCAA. I mean come on. Use some discretion here and realize that what they did absolutely alright. It took a while but the NCAA came around after Twitter of course put them through the ringer:
SOURCE: The NCAA has reached out to Clemson about Trevor Lawrence’s fundraiser and told them the NCAA will allow university discretion on charities that support the community during this crisis.

Thanks NCAA. This is of course after they had already shut down the original campaign.
