“Our compliance people have been on top of this for a long time. I think this is an example of…it’s not a violation if you sign a shirt for somebody, you just can’t receive compensation for it. We’ve done a cease and desist with this establishment a long time ago to make sure everybody understands what players can and can’t do. You know, I guess I could ban our players from the place but until somebody can sorta convince me that somebody is doing something wrong – which I haven’t been convinced of yet – I don’t know if that’s fair to our players.” –Nick Saban

The cease-and-desist letter Alabama sent to T-Town Menswear in December would seem to be in relation to another statute, NCAA Bylaw 12.5.2.2, which requires student-athletes or their institutions to take steps to stop the use of their names or pictures as promotional items when done without their knowledge. –RBR
