NCAA to Give Money to Families of Championship Athletes

LSU v Auburn

After nearly a century of collecting a fat pay check from TV endorsements and ticket sales for Final Four and championship games, the NCAA has agreed to reimburse the parents of student-athletes who travel to these games to watch their children play moving forward.

For men’s and women’s Final Four teams, the NCAA will pay up to $3,000 total for travel, hotel and meal expenses for student-athletes’ families to attend games. Championship game participants will receive $4,000.  The new College Football Playoff may provide up to $3,000 in expenses for families of each competing student-athlete.

Good news for cool dads of college athletes and their families!

College Hoops on Deck!

First and foremost, #SALUTE all the women and men affiliated with our Armed Forces. We celebrate you and even though you are the reason my kid’s have no school today … Still, I salute you.

TONIGHT our Armed Forces and the NCAA make history and me happy with the first basketball game played on an aircraft carrier.  The North Carolina Tarheels and Michigan State Spartans square off on the flight deck of the 1,094 feet long aircraft carrier the USS Carl Vinson. ESPN 7pm EST

The same ship that dunked Osama Bin Laden in the ocean hosts hoops war on the high seas.  President Obama and James Worthy will be in attendance. LET’S GO!  I LOVE college basketball.  I Love AMERICA!
