I’d heard that NCAA players didn’t get paid much, despite generating millions of dollars for their respective schools. But just how hard is it to live on their salaries? I decided to find out!
10:17 AM: Feeling great! Had a big dinner last night in prep, because I’ll tell you, zero dollars does not go far in New York City!
1:32 PM: Experiencing some reeeeally bad cotton mouth. Tried to scoop up some puddle water into my mouth. Might have dysentery. Will update.
3:45 PM: Not gonna lie, I thnk the hunger is startn gto afect my motrosilkls.
5:23 PM: And I’m back! I might have done some things I’m not super proud of with a couple I met on Craigslist in exchange for a gallon of water and a plate of ziti.
5:31 PM: Plot twist! Turns out receiving gifts (even food!) in exchange for services violates the NCAA code of conduct, so I am currently being investigated by the NCAA Morality Task Force. They let me finish my pasta though!
11:49 PM: They put me in a holding cell until a judge can hear my case next week! Bologna sandwiches as far as the eye can see! This wasn’t so hard after all! Thanks, NCAA!
