My cousin attended Duke University it wasnt for basketball but it was a full ride for another sport.I dont wanna give his name or sport but you can rest assurred he didnt want for nothing.I can remember seeing 100's of pair of nikes just for him and this was just a minor perk.I think the corruption is beyond repair and Tator is right that basketball match Kentucky vs Uconn featured two of the most corrupt coaches there is.
The ncaa allows players to get shoes, jerseys, practice gear, sweats, sweat suits, etc... because they are "using" these to play the sport. I'm pretty sure they don't put a limit on the stuff. That's why many kids in college have 100's pairs of nikes or 50 sweatshirts while playing. They even did that at the college I went to here in MO, and it'd a D2 school. when nike or adidas or reebok or UA sponser a school, it's a BIG deal. It's marketing. They make MILLIONS AND MILLIONS on those college kids wearing their gear. Even on uniforms they were in games. It's absolutely rediculous. and the bad thing is,,, the college kids think they should be paid for it. HA
