Nice research MJ Photos. I just host everything up on my SmugMug and have had a few friends ask why the 'buy' option wasn't there like the other photos. I'm going to have to take a look at my Media Pass when I get home, I can't remember exactly how strict that is.

Just remember one thing, is the sale of a few prints worth being basically black balled from ever getting a media pass again. Trust me, I know of at least three now former photographers who are never going to get a media pass ever again, their career is OVER! They broke the rules, though they did not break the law, they're done for good.

Also note, they can make you sign an agreement not to sell prints or limit your rights, it's why agencies fight for their rights so much. AP is usually the lead in refusing to cover events if the agreement is not "nice" to the media. So it can be done.

Yes, you can sell photos. The NCAA tries to strong arm people, but it is not prohibited (although you may not get a press pass in the future).

NCAA Bylaw 12.5.2.2 (http://www.ncaapublica​tions.com/productdownl​oads/D111.pdf (external link)) on page 78which reads:
If a student-athlete’s name or picture appears on commercial items (e.g., T-shirts, sweatshirts, serving trays, playing cards, posters) or is used to promote a commercial product sold by an individual or agency without the studentathlete’s knowledge or permission, the student-athlete (or the institution acting on behalf of the student-athlete) is required to take steps to stop such an activity in order to retain his or her eligibility for intercollegiate athletics. Such steps are not required in cases in which a student-athlete’s photograph is sold by an individual or agency (e.g., private photographer, news agency) for private use.

I took a picture of OSU football stadium when they were playing Michigan a few weeks ago. I have posted it on my flickr account and a few people have asked if they could purchase a high res copy from me.

Do you know these requesters? What do they mean by "high res"? 1200x850? 1900x1200 for their computer screen wall paper or the full resolution of the image you took?

"High res" usually means "full resolution." The pixel dimensions by themselves don't mean anything.
