Tim Beckman caught using chewing tobacco on sideline

Well, this is a pretty blatant violation of NCAA rules by Illinois head coach Tim Beckman, seen here throwing in a heavy pinch of chewing tobacco just prior to the Illini's road game against Wisconsin.

From the NCAA's list of banned substances:

"The use of tobacco products is prohibited for coaches, game officials and student athletes in all sports during practice and competition. A student-athlete who uses tobacco products during practice or competition is automatically disqualified for the remainder of that practice or game."
