$150 Best Buy gift card, Fossil watch, ring, cap, Outback Steakhouse giftcard
Thats a joke for the money they make the schools and NCAA. How about a $500 or $1,000 gift card?
I think it can add to a grand total on $450 in value of all received gifts to each player.

The NCAA is a joke in regards to what the players get. Don't give me the scholarship pays for school crap either. The schools make the NCAA money and they spend it on lame ass programs like the one that Garcia got in trouble at two years ago.
Brady Hoke will take all the Michigan players' Outback giftcards...

usually doesnt the school give players apparel for the bowl games in addition to the stuff from the bowl? underarmor type sweats, etc. not cheap stuff really. i think overall the players get a decent haul in addition to the week of outrageous eating at outback & other decent places.
add in the per mile cost they get, i think that still applies, many of them will get some cash too to spend
All the guys wear under-armor stuff, all the time anyways. They even have UA backpacks. Shoes, socks, shirts, pants, hats, backpacks, they get all they can fit in their closets. I hope they get more than that, because they already have more gear than they know what to do with.
Ally will beat the crap out of Uga.
just saying that these apparel items are typically part of what the school contributes to the players that is considered gifts. i noted the op mentioned a ring
i am not sure if this is the same kind of ring that last year sos got made special for the team with 11 wins on the ring, the school went above and beyond on the ring cost
the school does try to give what they can to the guys as reward, dont worry about that. even if you dont like an underarmor sweat suit for example, it might make a nice gift to somebody'
let them win, lets secure the trophy & i think we might scrounge up some more stuff for them. but lets keep the rules in mind, nothing outside proper limits the rules are the rules
It's a gift. One should accept with appreciation.
