One of the basketball players is participating in a pool on a well-known website. He put Gonzaga in the Elite Eight losing to Kansas, if anyone cares about that...

I think it is perfectly fine as long as there is no money involved (see Rick Neuheisel and the institution of UW).

Any Compliance person in any atheletic department would tell an athlete not to participate, even if there is no money. The situation could get sketch really easily. Better safe than sorry...
