When you’re a college student, you love free stuff. Heck, I’m 10 years removed from college and I still love free stuff. Some of the perks of being a D1 college athlete for a big time program is you get some really nice footwear and apparel. Sometimes even for free. Recently University of North Carolina head football coach, Larry Fedora, announced to his team that each one of them will receive a complimentary pair of Air Jordan 11’s. What proceeded this announcement was priceless.
Let’s go to Twitter and see what happened.

Kind of a similar reaction to when Oprah gives a free car to everyone in her audience. Imagine what the reaction will be like if the NCAA makes an announcement that they are going to begin to pay the college athletes. Can you say Mardi Gras?
