NCAA Back At It
The NCAA apparently has rules about everything when it comes to college athletics.
Even pasta eating.
A list of benign secondary violations that Oklahoma’s athletic department reported to the NCAA included one bizarre anecdote: According to The Oklahoman, three unnamed Sooners athletes ate more food during a graduation banquet than NCAA rules allow. The violations occurred on May 10, 2013, according to the newspaper.
The specific item overindulged on was pasta.
To have their eligibility reinstated, the three had to donate $3.83 each (the cost of the pasta servings) to charities of their choice.

There is a reason I agreed with the Northwestern Football team for starting a college player’s union. For bullshit like this. I have no words for these corrupt motherfuckers hiding behind the letters “NCAA”. How can there even be a rule like that?
“Excuse me sir, you are not allowed to eat that much, or you will lose your eligibility to play college football.”
What the hell did you just say? I’m a hungry offensive lineman, and I feel like eating what I want. Eat a dick.
“Well since you decided not to listen to us, you owe us exactly $3.83 each if you want your eligibility reinstated.”
I’m glad the players made a joke about it and decided to pay $5 claiming that they ate more than $3.83 worth. Good for them exploiting stupid rules like this.
