Maryland uses a popular meme to send an important message about NCAA compliance.
The NCAA has a jumble of rules that regulate how schools may contact recruits, which can make signing day, when schools, boosters and fans are all trying to secure top-flight prospects, a precarious time for school compliance offices.
Maryland's compliance staff decided to nip the situation in the bud, enlisting Liam Neeson and the modern magic of the movie meme to remind fans and boosters alike to not risk anyone's eligibility through illicit contact.
Hopefully Maryland's efforts ward off any improprieties during the recruiting process, because, as a number of schools can confirm, keeping those players in school once they've enrolled is challenging enough.
