It’s quite impressive to completely lack self-awareness and common sense in the way the NCAA has shown but they continue to astonish us. The latest has to do with them stopping Clemson star QB Trevor Lawrence trying to do his part to help COVID-19 victims.

According to The State, Lawrence and his girlfriend Marissa Mowry started a GoFundMe for victims of COVID-19 coronavirus. A noble act and gesture by two young college students setting a positive example while others their age are partying in Miami instead of self-quarantining. Instead, the NCAA saw an issue with this because of “rules that prohibit using name, image and likeness for crowd funding,” Lawrence and Mowry were forced to deactivate their GoFundMe after raising $2,670.

  Texas QB Sam Ehlinger follows Trevor Lawrence's lead, sets up coronavirus charity effort with $1 million goal Texas quarterback Sam Ehlinger became the second prominent college quarterback this week to use his platform to raise money for those adversely impacted by the coronavirus. Ehlinger announced on social media on Friday that he started a GoFundMe page to help organizations both locally in Austin and nationally that have been impacted by the pandemic. In a message posted on Twitter and Instagram, Ehlinger said that the money would be spread to organizations like the Boys & Girls Club of America, Austin Pets Alive!, the Central Texas Food Bank and others. He set his goal to raise $1 million dollars.

In an Instagram video, Mowry said, “Unfortunately Trevor cannot be a part of this anymore due to compliance and some rules, so he can’t help out anymore. And also we have to take down the GoFundMe page.” Lawrence said that the money raised will go to Meals on Wheels America and No Kid Hungry.

This isn’t the first time the NCAA has done something this stupid and it won’t be the last. If they ran a city and they were a drought, they would fine the fire department for using water on a burning building. Lawrence can apply for a waiver to be a part of this but given everything is shut down, it might not only take a while for him to get permission but it might be too late for many people.

Why can’t the NCAA see this GoFundMe taking place and make a common sense decision that while it goes against the rules, we’ll allow it because it’s helping many others in need. We need good news in this world, NCAA. Stop being your usual evil selves and have a heart for once.
