maryland-uniforms.jpgAnother college football season is upon us, and to make sure that everyone at home can keep up with all the suspensions and other mysterious or unexplained absences from their favorite college team, the NCAA has conveniently released its most recent rules manual.

It’s a whopping 439 pages, and after reading it cover to cover, I couldn’t find a single thing about tattoos. Nonetheless, I’m pretty sure they’re banned—unless, of course, The student–athlete can prove that their tattoo was free or discounted.

What I find even more puzzling than the tattoo omission is how it isn’t a major rules infraction to show up to a nationally-televised primetime season opener dressed the way Maryland Terps did on Monday night.
