A University of Arkansas athletic department news release says of the Celebrate society magazine fashion shoot involving Razorback basketball players and the coach -- we didn't know nothin'.

The University of Arkansas has submitted a self-report of an NCAA secondary violation involving the improper use of men’s basketball student-athletes’ images in a local magazine article. Consistent with all other secondary violation reports, the University of Arkansas has forwarded the self-report to the Southeastern Conference. As the routine process for reporting secondary violations has been completed, the University of Arkansas considers the matter closed.

The secondary violation outlined in the report does not allege or include any impermissible activity by any University of Arkansas coaches, student-athletes or staff members. No Razorback coach, student-athlete or other athletic department official approved or had prior knowledge of any non-editorial use of the student-athletes’ images as part of the article. No compensation was provided by the media outlet for the article or the accompanying photos. This matter does not affect the eligibility of student-athletes.

The self-report was based on tag lines used to accompany photos of student-athletes referencing local businesses that provided clothing specifically for the photos in the article. The request for interviews and photos was made through the Arkansas Media Relations department and was accommodated in a manner consistent with other such media requests.

In other words, it's the magazine's fault if anything looks suspicious.
