This was one aspect of the NCAA case against the Maryland football program, at least as it concerned two sodas and a hot dog, a birthday cake, and a T-shirt and a cap.
In the NCAA section on etiquette, a coach is not permitted to pick up the cost of two sodas and a hot dog if the recipient of the gesture is a recruit.
The NCAA was obligated to respond to a couple of funny dollars here and there at Maryland, mustard and ketchup stains and a highly irregular birthday cake.

Evans said he still does not expect additional sanctions from the NCAA because of Georgia's swift and harsh self-punishment after the allegations came to light.

What you didn't know was that some of those fans yelling, jumping, and going out of their minds, are fans that you're going to help create, or at least the signs they're holding.
NCAA is going to feature a number of cut scenes (think ESPN NFL) that show fans doing everything from the Gator chomp to the tomahawk chop, and gamers will be add their own twist.
The NCAA will watch and try to make sure you're running a clean program, and that involves everything from benching a player for missing a workout to recruiting to making sure your players aren't skipping class.

 One Student's Stand Against The NCAA's Intrusive Regulations
The NCAA - at the expense of applying its extensive bureaucracy to solving the problems of athletes who are neither learning nor graduating - has applied itself to such politically correct issues as the elemental composition of Mississippi's flag and the use of "Indian" mascot names.
This rule has been most prevalent in college football, where a spate of young men who tried their hand (and failed) at minor league baseball were given the opportunity to return to seek an all expenses paid degree via their prowess on the gridiron.
As an issue of fairness, the NCAA deemed that the star quarterback of the football team should not be able to receive free meals from a local restaurant owner enamored of his football abilities while other students would have to pay for their cheeseburger and fries.

NCAA programs benefit from the proceeds, said Greg Shaheen, NCAA senior vice president for basketball and business strategies.
The NCAA is touting the program as a ticket exchange, but essentially, fans who plan to forgo either the tournament's national semifinals or championship game can name their price with a catch: A portion of the profit will go back to the NCAA.
Proceeds will go to the overall revenue of the NCAA and will be distributed to various programs, Shaheen said.

 Salon.com News | The evil NCAA
The NCAA routinely interferes in the lives of college students, violating their civil rights, dictating to colleges which athletes can attend college on what terms and pursuing rebels and enemies with a vindictiveness unmatched outside of Mario Puzo novels.
The villain, he argues, is not the NCAA but the irresponsible academicians who continue to allow the NCAA to rule in their name.
As Sperber writes, the NCAA's 1979 marriage to ESPN (which ushered in "wall-to-wall coverage of college sports") "marked a new phenomenon in higher education, one that subsequently became central to student life." That was an entire generation ago; five classes of college students have now graduated since that deal was made.
