While you were having your afternoon tea and crumpets, ESPN analyst and former Duke Basketball star Jay Bilas straight obliterated the NCAA. Bilas is known to side with collegiate athletes on certain issues, but on Tuesday morning ripped the NCAA a new one via Twitter. Bilas took a stand against the NCAA for punishing athletes who profit off themselves while they're making millions doing the same (Is it even shocking?). His crucifixion of the NCAA came in light of the ongoing investigation against Johnny Manziel for allegedly signing autographs for a Florida autograph dealer and getting paid. Bilas let his followers in on the fact the NCAA's official store brings you to specific player pages if you search for a star athlete by name. Mind you, the NCAA claimed they don't profit off any likenesses of players by name and none of these players have their names on the back of those jerseys nor have seen any cash from these sales. Here are some of his tweets from today that embarrassed the Association: Go to http://t.co/qpH4tNnIpH , type in "Manziel" in upper right search box, hit enter. This comes up. pic.twitter.com/N7KNvXIu24 -- Jay Bilas (@JayBilas) August 6, 2013 Go to http://t.co/qpH4tNnIpH , type in "Clowney" in upper right search box, and hit enter. This comes up. pic.twitter.com/********** -- Jay Bilas (@JayBilas) August 6, 2013 Go to http://t.co/qpH4tNnIpH and type "Tajh Boyd" in upper right search box, then hit enter. This comes up. pic.twitter.com/0DF68wM0tW -- Jay Bilas (@JayBilas) August 6, 2013 Bilas also made it clear that the NCAA is making money off players that are suspended or players that are no longer in the NCAA such as Terrell Pryor who got in trouble for selling his own memorabilia. Tisk Tisk. Bilas really put the hammer down when he let the Twitter herd know what would happen if you searched "NCAA Executive Committee" and then himself: Even suspended, http://t.co/qpH4tNnIpH will sell your stuff. Notre Dame's Everett Golson is still for sale. pic.twitter.com/gY6vRDJCK1 -- Jay Bilas (@JayBilas) August 6, 2013 NCAA forced Shabazz Muhammad to sit out early games, but still making money off of him on http://t.co/qpH4tNnIpH . pic.twitter.com/3U0KFbmngg -- Jay Bilas (@JayBilas) August 6, 2013 Notwithstanding his suspension, NCAA still sells Tyran Mathieu, searchable by his name, on http://t.co/qpH4tNnIpH . pic.twitter.com/FtN3Y0NLQD -- Jay Bilas (@JayBilas) August 6, 2013 Go to http://t.co/qpH4tNnIpH and type "NCAA Executive Committee" in upper right search box, hit enter.

This comes up. pic.twitter.com/IXIgunvvva -- Jay Bilas (@JayBilas) August 6, 2013 It's safe to say the NCAA got the memo because they disabled their player search feature on the shop website. Not sure what changes will come about as a result of Bilas' tweets, but he did a damn good job at exposing the hypocrisy. Way to go, Jay.
