South Carolina doesn't have to pay for its self-reported cookie cake icing sins. And the NCAA got rewarded.
Included in the Gamecocks' 22 self-reported NCAA violations from the past year was "impermissible icing decorations" on cookie cakes that were given to potential recruits. However, on Tuesday, an NCAA spokesperson tweeted that the Gamecocks' self-reported violation was not a violation at all.
So Great American Cookies wanted to thank the NCAA on Wednesday. The company hatched an idea to send cookie cakes to the NCAA offices and made true on it.
The "You're A Real Sport" cookie made us chuckle. Maybe it'll be in the next NCAA student-athlete commercial? A spokesperson for Great American Cookies said NCAA employees seemed happy to have the cookie cakes.
Yes, we must jokingly ask if NCAA employees eating free cookie cakes is an NCAA violation. (No, it's not.)
