01:42 PM ET 05.02 | The NCAA has banned schools from placing hashtags and URLs on playing surfaces. While the practice is far from widespread, more schools have begun putting them on football fields to help promote their program. The most notable of which being Mississippi State, but other schools including Michigan and Arkansas have done it as well. It's not like the practice was a problem, so it's somewhat confusing that with so many issues still unresolved, the NCAA addressed a problem that wasn't really a problem at all.

Maybe they addressed it because they don't want it to become a problem?

The NCAA wants to control the potential dollars from placement.
