Some of the other gifts would be worth more. I would rather have the $400 Best Buy gift card and I could buy what I wanted. You can get a 20 Vizio LCD TV for cheaper than that...

Not that I would complain...

Just kind of an off the wall thought. NCAA rules prevent them from taking gifts, yet they can at the bowls??? Kind of two faced IMO that when it benifits the NCAA to have them play and generate money for the NCAA it's OK, but if they do it on their own, they smack them around. A 20 inch TV with surround isn't a trivial gift. Usually that sort of thing is capped at $20-$40 in value for gifting in the public sector (most private also). Don't get me wrong, I like the kids getting some "Bling" for their hard work. I just think the NCAA is talking out of both sides of their mouth.

Texas Bowl - Belt Buckle? That bad boy better be all blinged out and have some value at the pawn shops. At least throw in a pair of wranglers for the poor players. :splits:

they get the boots too. if they're a good exotic, those boots might be worth 200-300.

I thought I read that the boots will be custom fit, and made out of whatever animal skin the player chooses (that Nocona carries) so that's an easy 200-300 dollars.
