Some journalism students at the University of Maryland recently investigated what different colleges are doing to monitor student-athletes' social media accounts. The students sent requests for documents pertaining to social media and other policies and shared the results with the Student Press Law Center.

The University of Georgia's policies for its men's basketball team, including more than just social media rules, came as part of the records request. The most noteworthy aspect of it involved the team's policies on how to "Treat women with respect."

Among the policies detailed:

You don't own your girlfriend.

Birth control is your responsibility too.

Never assault or intimidate a woman.

Don't spend all of your energy in the bed all night

Hicky's/passion marks should not be ever noticed by coaches

One. Not two or three girlfriends.

Another part of the document detailed the policy on the cleanliness of dorms, allowing basically no privacy.

The policy states, "We're paying so we're inspecting. I can enter the dorm at any time." Apartment parties are not recommended.

The team is also strict on the player's appearance, saying hair should be “shaven, no braids” and coaches “don’t want sagging, should never see the crack of your ass."

For more on social media monitoring policies, the full report can be found here.
