NCAA responds to South Carolina’s ‘impermissible decorative icing’ on cake
South Carolina’s ‘Icing Gate’ has created one of the more interesting conversations the last few days.
The Gamecocks’ football program recently reported seven secondary violations. Among the seven was the infamous Icing Gate. The Gamecocks self-reported the infraction from last winter involving ‘impermissible iced decorations’ on cookie cakes given to prospects.
Emily James, who’s on the NCAA’s PR team, responded to the self-reported violation via Twitter, and she said it will process the violation.
Lots of talk about cookie cake icing – NCAA talked with SEC & USC – all now agree it’s not a concern & will not be processed as a violation
