re: Buga Nation is now selling clothing apparel


Exactly my thoughts...the timing is probably key. The Honey Badger nickname was given to Mathieu after he started playing at LSU.

I agree. I think the 2 examples mentioned are the honey badger t shirts and the Johnny Football example both of which happened while they were enrolled. In my mind I think that these things are happening now is due to the fact that the family is getting great legal advice. That's my hope at least. But like I said before, I'm no attorney or expert on what the NCAA view is (who is).

It's a smart business move by big name HS athletes.

As soon as BUGA INC. comes out with some jersey's... they'll see $$$$ from LSU students.

Someone needs to tell them PayPal is free to sign up and will generate them a lot more business

You can file this under the terribly awful idea category.

Maybe LF doesn't want to play college ball?

I can guarantee that LSU's compliance office dotted their I's

Name another NCAA player that either sells apparel or has a family member that sells apparel in their likeness?

Only way this might be ok is if LF is not yet considered an NCAA athlete (which I don't think he is until he signs the LOI)

Eta: his family is using a po box and a phone # to sell their product. There's a decent chance the LSU compliance dept just found out about this today.

If Birmingham orders up $180k worth of merch, might LF feel the love and commit to $aban?

The better question is...could REC figure out a way to allow LF to sell his merchandise? I think so.

They definitely can. Again, LF hasn't signed anything yet. He isn't violating any NCAA rules

wut? Show you that buganation is in his likeness? I think that's pretty clear and isn't even debatable that buganation is based off of LF's likeness + marketability.

As far as which rule that is, I don't feel like looking it up, but a NCAA player cannot profit off of their likeness and/or marketability:

re: Buga Nation is now selling clothing apparel


Are student athletes not allowed to be business owners?

I would think as long as he isnt using any football images or anything he would be ok even if he made money.
