A recent study has revealed that the University of Georgia basketball team have been set a number of rules regarding relationships and girlfriends.

Journalists from Maryland University were aiming to discover whether colleges governing student-athletes on social media violated law but instead unearthed enlightening facts about other areas of athletes' life including how they conduct themselves in relationships.

According to the report via the New York Post, Bulldogs' hoop team have a section of rules entitled: 'Treat women with respect'.

Within the section, the players are advised to avoid orgies which are classed as 'inappropriate' and are also forbidden from having multiple girlfriends. The athletes are also instructed to adhere to rules regarding birth control, passion marks and domestic abuse.

Another policy at the University of Georgia relates to student-athletes keeping their dorm-rooms in a clean state and in particular allows staff to inspect on a regular basis.

“We’re paying, so we’re inspecting. I can enter the dorm at any time,” the policy states.

The majority of these rules relate to general conduct and human decency but the report has caused interest in some areas for the amount of involvement that the university has in their student-athletes lives.
