Sooners self-report excessive pasta
Oklahoma athletics apparently doesn't believe in all-you-can-eat banquets.
The Sooners elected to self-report three players for getting more food at a graduation banquet than they should have, according to The Oklahoman.
The violations occurred on May 10, 2013, according to the newspaper, with pasta being the specific item in question.
To have their eligibility reinstated, the three had to donate $3.83 each (the cost of the pasta servings) to charities of their choice.
While the Sooners elected to self-report, the NCAA released a statement saying that what the three players did was not a violation of any NCAA rules.
"While we appreciate Oklahoma's commitment, there are no NCAA rules regarding portion sizes, and any penalties were determined by the university," NCAA spokeswoman Meghan Durham said in a statement.
