NCAA president denies Guy's assertion he can't have wedding registry

Virginia guard Kyle Guy announced his engagement to longtime girlfriend, Alexa Jenkins, in February of past year.

A source said Virginia's compliance, not the NCAA, would have communicated the message to Guy. For their upcoming wedding, like most couples, they set up a registry for gifts to celebrate the occassion.

"Yeah, that was insane to me that that's illegal because that's what a registry is for", Guy told reporters. "I'm going to try to win a national championship, and we'll open that book".

The NCAA says it is not a violation for your family members and friends to shower you with wedding gifts.

While the NCAA is typically the "bad guy" in stories about ridiculous regulations, in this case, a very cautious administrator at Guy's own school turned out to be behind his registry's benching.

But if Guy was confused by the reasoning behind the NCAA edict, NCAA President Mark Emmert further muddied the waters by claiming no one from his organization issued such a ban. We don't know what the source of that information was, whether it came from the institution or not.

Emmert said gifts from family and friends at a wedding are not against NCAA rules. "There's not a prohibition against that".

UK Parliament Suspended Over Water Leak
Parliament needs urgent repairs but MPs have been non-committal over if and when they should move elsewhere while work is done. The sitting continued for a few minutes, but the noise of water pouring into the press gallery quickly became overwhelming.

"We've been reaching back out already to the university to try to find out what transpired there".

Virginia has not responded to a request for comment.

After Virginia beat Purdue in the Elite Eight last weekend, the website Busted Coverage shared the couple's registry and noted that fans might want to buy something nice for Guy after his double-double in the Hoos' overtime win. The post has since been deleted. Then he received a cease and desist letter from Kelly Korras, Virginia's associate director of compliance.

"The University is requesting that you immediately remove the wedding registry link". The receipt of items from the registry could constitute an impermissible extra benefit.

If you're a collegiate athlete and you're engaged to be married, don't worry.

He went on to tell the Post, he thought including the wedding registry in the post "was funny" and never meant to get "Kyle in trouble".

University of Virginia's Kyle Guy is the lucky (or unlucky) man in this scenario.
