I work at Adelphi University in Garden City, NY, and got an e-mail about an NCAA Tournament pool they are having. The e-mail says:
We are inviting you* to join our Free March Madness Men's Basketball Bracket Pool called AU CAMPUS RECREATION POOL. The pool is being hosted on a website called tournamentpools.com.
INSTRUCTIONS FOR JOINING:
Click on the link below and you will be guided through the process for joining this pool, including registering on the website if you haven't registered before.
Click here to join our pool:
Pool ID#: x
Pool Entry Code: x
1st place winner: Campus Recreation Gift Pack (includes, blanket, umbrella, and more!!)
2nd place winner: Campus Recreation Umbrella!
*IMPORTANT DISCLAIMER: Due to NCAA compliance rules, NO Adelphi varsity athlete or staff of the Adelphi Athletic department are allowed to participate in this pool. Thanks for your cooperation!"
I edited out the Pool ID# and Entry Code because it isn't for people here to join. My question is why should the NCAA have a problem with Adelphi athletes participating considering Adelphi is only in Division I for soccer?
