Oregon receiver Josh Huff has a problem with the NCAA and he let his thousands of Twitter followers know about it on Thursday.

The senior wideout wrote that he had to cancel a party due to NCAA regulations because he planned on charging a cover to get in. Huff ripped the NCAA in a series of tweets for being able to "make money off of my name and likeness" and said being a student-athlete should be treated as a full time job (are you listening, Jim Boeheim?).

Sorry ppl I can't have my party bc of the NCAA sorry for the inconvenience ! So my party is cancelled.

So it's okay for the NCAA to make money off of my name and likeness but once I go to charge ppl to get in my party it's a problem? Crazy.

I'm just a student-athlete who's trying to make more money to survive off of bc being a student athlete should be treated as a full time job

I don't mean to be a distraction but I honestly feel as if the NCAA is full of bs.

Huff later referenced former UCLA basketball player Ed O'Bannon's class-action lawsuit against the NCAA and Electronic Arts and the Collegiate Licensing Company over former college athletes whose likenesses were used without compensation. A settlement was reached between O'Bannon and EA back in September, but NCAA is still a defendant, per Sports Illustrated.

Over the NCAA ! Hope the players union win the case bc y'all are just down wrong for how y'all treat us athletes.

Don't get me wrong I appreciate the scholarship and the degree I have

— Huff 2Live (@Huff_Era_1) October 17, 2013

But for them to make MILLIONS off student athletes and our names is wrong. Do the math of all the hours we spend each day and yearly on

— Huff 2Live (@Huff_Era_1) October 17, 2013

the sport we love. You'll see we're getting paid less then minimum wage at $4 hr. I'm very blessed and grateful but its just not right.

— Huff 2Live (@Huff_Era_1) October 17, 2013

But you know i have no say so.

Huff then claimed that he lost $1500 for having to cancel his party.

Can't charge ppl to get in my party and had to cancel where I lost $1500 that I won't get bck bc my friends made a flyer lol what a joke

— Huff 2Live (@Huff_Era_1) October 17, 2013

$1500 !! Not $200 but $1500 that's a huge difference

— Huff 2Live (@Huff_Era_1) October 17, 2013

Money I save to give my college a good time at my party !

— Huff 2Live (@Huff_Era_1) October 17, 2013

Okay I'm done

— Huff 2Live (@Huff_Era_1) October 17, 2013

But shortly after finishing his rant, Huff let his followers know there would be another party next weekend.

My PARTY is CANCELLED but there's a party going next weekend you should be excited for
