TCU’s light bulb scandal is as funny as the NCAA’s ‘punishment’ for it
The question has often been asked: How many football players does it take to screw in a light bulb? And TCU bravely sought to find the exact answer through its own athletic department.
What we learned is that not just football players can do the job. Men’s and women’s basketball players are required to help to complete the arduous task.
The answer is 33.
On Friday, just in time for Christmas, TCU was put on NCAA probation after it self-reported that 33 student-athletes were paid for work they did not do in on-campus jobs at the university’s physical plant.
You know you’ve hit the big time when the women’s basketball team gets busted.
