Cookie cake company to send 12 iced cookie cakes to NCAA

COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

Because the story about the South Carolina Gamecocks self-reporting violations of impermissible benefits involving icing on a cookie cake isn't hilarious enough, the Great American Cookie Company has just pushed this story further into the absurd.

The company tweeted a photo of a cookie cake that reads "Thank You! NCAA" to the South Carolina football team's twitter account. Because Thank You wasn't enough, the cookie maker iced a nice smiling face on top of the cookie.

"Thought you might appreciate," the tweet from the company said, "Sending 12 to NCAA prez to celebrate return of icing."

As mentioned above, the Gamecocks had to report violations involving the football program to the NCAA late last week.

One of those violations, the aforementioned icing on a cookie, turned into a story that gave NCAA critics another talking point to use against the collegiate athletics group.

Late Tuesday night, the NCAA reported that the cookie icing was, in fact, not that big of a deal after all.

No word on if NCAA President Mark Emmert has received the cookie cake.

    Dylan Thompson threw for three touchdowns and No. 24 South Carolina's maligned defense stood strong on a fourth-quarter goal line stand to topple No. 6 Georgia 38-35 on Saturday night.
    No. 24 South Carolina's defense showed it's not nearly as bad as it looked two weeks ago - and maybe that No. 6 Georgia isn't the runaway favorite in the Southeastern Conference Eastern Division.

    Georgia can establish itself as a top-tier beast if it gets by South Carolina this weekend - and USC would drop to 0-2 in the league with a loss. Tennessee travels to Oklahoma, where Coach Bob Stoops doesn't believe the SEC is all-powerful.
