    Food for Team?

    This may be a very random question that no one has an answer for but I thought I'd give it a shot.

    How much money is the men's basketball team allowed to spend on meals? I always see them out together. And they are always buying at least two meals for each player (one for sit down dinner, and one to-go). Obviously the University picks up the bill. I saw them out and I estimated (underestimated) a bill approximately at $700 for one meal plus tip. Are they allowed to eat out like that every night?

    If my tuition dollars are going to this I'm not going to be a happy camper. Where is this money coming from?!

    No, don't worry, your tuition dollars are actually going to a tenured professor who mentally checked out from the job ten years ago.

    MYOB .... your tuition does not support any of the athletic programs.

    Calling BS. If all 13 scholarship players were there that's over $50/player. Unless you saw them all at Aunt Maude's, I'm saying you're completely making **** up.

    I call BS too, considering that I know the bill for the football team and coaches to go eat at hickory park (All we could eat ribs and chicken) before road games was about $2500 (when I was playing). That includes 70 players, all coaches, the trainers and mangers that were traveling, etc.

    As of a few years ago, players were allotted $10/meal

    I think Cyko is aptly named.

    They definitely were buying themselves and their girlfriends (they specifically said this, too) 20$ meals each. Plus some of them got dessert, too.

    Let me rephrase what I said....

    I didn't buy season tickets so their girlfriends could get a free meal.
