Oregon's Josh Huff Upset At NCAA After Being Forced to Cancel Birthday Party

It must be a tough life being the favorite target of one of the top quarterbacks in college football on one of the best offenses in the nation — the Oregon Ducks. Oh yeah, and having college paid for. Well, Josh Huff nearly broke one of the NCAA’s strict, yet stupid rules for his sure-to-be crazy birthday party. He was trying to charge people a cover price to get into his much-anticipated birthday party, but the NCAA‘s rules would not allow him to make a profit on such a thing.

It appears as if the wide out was not happy about being denied one of the best nights of his life and he was forced to cancel the event and apparently he was not happy about missing out on $1,500 in beer money — I mean food money.

It looks to me like he has opened up the most controversial argument in college sports today. While this article is about a party and not whether or not athletes should be paid, I will try to stay out of that sticky situation. Although like Huff said in a later tweet, he is grateful for his scholarship — which didn’t seem genuine. Many college students struggle to pay for school while these athletes get out of college debt-free and some make millions of dollars the next year.

Okay, rant over. Tough luck for Huff, but he will have to settle for being one of the best receivers in the nation and a future NFL star.
