Oregon wide receiver Josh Huff, like almost every other college kid, wanted to have a party and charge people cover at the door to pay for the costs of the event. But Huff, unlike most other college kids, isn’t allowed to do that. As such, he has cancelled his party and appears to be out $1,500. It also appears he wants everyone to know about what he believes is a ridiculous double standard. Huff took to Twitter and absolutely went off on the NCAA, which, as we’re all aware, has some pretty strict rules about compensation for athletes. While we doubt the NCAA actually got wind of Huff’s party (no chance), it’s more likely that someone at Oregon informed him of a potential violation, should he go through with it.  Sorry ppl I can’t have my party bc of the NCAA sorry for the inconvenience ! So my party is cancelled. — Huff 2Live (@Huff_Era_1) October 17, 2013 So it’s okay for the NCAA to make money off of my name and likeness but once I go to charge ppl to get in my party it’s a problem? Crazy. — Huff 2Live (@Huff_Era_1) October 17, 2013 I’m just a student-athlete who’s trying to make more money to survive off of bc being a student athlete should be treated as a full time job — Huff 2Live (@Huff_Era_1) October 17, 2013 I don’t mean to be a distraction but I honestly feel as if the NCAA is full of bs. — Huff 2Live (@Huff_Era_1) October 17, 2013 Over the NCAA ! Hope the players union win the case bc y’all are just down wrong for how y’all treat us athletes. — Huff 2Live (@Huff_Era_1) October 17, 2013 Don’t get me wrong I appreciate the scholarship and the degree I have — Huff 2Live (@Huff_Era_1) October 17, 2013 But for them to make MILLIONS off student athletes and our names is wrong. Do the math of all the hours we spend each day and yearly on — Huff 2Live (@Huff_Era_1) October 17, 2013 the sport we love. You’ll see we’re getting paid less then minimum wage at $4 hr. I’m very blessed and grateful but its just not right. — Huff 2Live (@Huff_Era_1) October 17, 2013 But you know i have no say so. — Huff 2Live (@Huff_Era_1) October 17, 2013 Can’t charge ppl to get in my party and had to cancel where I lost $1500 that I won’t get bck bc my friends made a flyer lol what a joke — Huff 2Live (@Huff_Era_1) October 17, 2013 Money I save to give my college a good time at my party ! — Huff 2Live (@Huff_Era_1) October 17, 2013 My PARTY is CANCELLED but there’s a party going next weekend you should be excited for — Huff 2Live (@Huff_Era_1) October 17, 2013 Huff isn’t the only college athlete with this opinion – many believe they should be compensated with more than just a free education. There are even some coaches, namely Steve Spurrier, who think college athletes should be paid. Personally, I just want to know about the party next weekend – it has to be free, right? [Daily Emerald]
