Comedian Teaching Illinois Baseball Players "Ludicrous Stretching Exercises" Results in NCAA Violation

UCLA were having too much impermissible fun last year after winning title

NCAA secondary violations are the best, or the worst, depending on your view. We’ve had Urban Meyer passing a phone to Tim Tebow, telling a recruit “good luck,” a game of paintball, and Josh Pastner accidentally tweeting a name based on a nagging, pregnant wife.

You can add having a comedian make some funnies to the list.

A comedian who provided what were described as “ludicrous stretching exercises” and then tried to teach the finer points of a home run trot constituted a secondary violation. Why? Because it was impermissible coaching. (Also, I’m assuming the comedian was Miguel Angel Jimenez, though it is not stated.)
