Reminder: Using chewing tobacco on the sidelines is illegal

The NCAA bans the use of tobacco products for coaches, officials and student athletes during all sports practices and competition. Student athletes can be disqualified for the remainder of the game if caught using a tobacco product.

A USA Today article caught our attention this weekend after they noticed Illinois head coach Tim Beckman using chewing tobacco during their game Saturday. 

Illinois has announced it will report a secondary violation to the NCAA for this. 

Asked about the incident after their 31-14 loss to Wisconsin, Beckman told reporters it's a bad habit of his.

"That's a bad habit of mine. I apologize for that. I guess it's the stress, but there's no excuse for that and that'll be stopped. It shouldn't have been done.'' he explained.

Just a reminder guys...
