There were a lot of great things said about Royce on these boards. That was one of my favorites. Trip down memory lane:

It seems that you are holding back. You probably don't even know it. But if you want to leave a legacy like you have the potential to, you have to never take a play off. There is no reason that gaurds shouldn't fear driving into you. Make your presence known each play. That is your lane, defend it. You should feel ashamed to allow the teams score in the paint like they have. Keep your feet moving so you don't give up your position so easily. If you work enough to sweat for us during the games, you will leave a legacy that my kids will be talking about for many years to come.
Eh, no. They can never take money for their ncaa stuff. It would be a violation for ISU. Players cannot get money for their college time even after they have exhausted their eligibility.
There is such a double standard for this stuff. I was at Meet the Coaches last fall and there were multiple game worn items for sale in the auction.
I definitely remember Chris Babb's game worn, signed shoe being there.

For sale by ISU, no problem. For sale by the players, problem.
I assumed he was joking... He's a moron if he isn't.
I really don't know if an athlete could sell their unis after they graduate or if that would be seen as an impermissable benefit. I'll poke around online later today and research. I do know that Kansas was punished when boosters sent graduation gifts to players after they graduated from KU. Roy Williams thought it was OK because they had exhausted their eligibility but it was not. I don't see this as any different. A booster could agree to pay a guy $50,000 for a pair shoes once he graduates. The equipment wasn't purchased by the athlete so it's technically not "his". Sounds like a violation in the NCAA world to me.
