    Yeah, if there is going to be a type of NCAA violation that I can let slide this is it. Maybe there should be something changed to allow these items to be paid for since they are required for school.

    ...any chance this will turn out to be a sellback scam?

    The kids get every single book and sell back all the optional ones for $?

    Otherwise why would (*edit* I want to know how many) kids all get the 'recommended' reading?'

    This is a distinct possibility. Strong evidence of this would the lack of football players that can read.

    I'm guessing you weren't the average scholarship athlete in college though. If that was the purpose of this program, then it's no better than a money laundering scheme.

    No but I was an academic scholarship student and I wanted to get my money's worth.
