Planning to be in Atlanta on Saturday? Would you like to witness people milling around while cash pours down from above? But I repeat myself!
How does a brand new, baby blue FCS tadpole in the middle of the SEC's unofficial capital conquer its attendance issues? When in Atlanta, simply do as Atlanta does.
Georgia State students will be brought on to the field, where $10,000 in cash will be dropped from the rafters. I was curious as to whether Georgia State basketball post players, who would have an obvious cash-grabbing advantage because of their height, wingspan and leaping ability, could participate given the NCAA's rules against extra benefits. So I asked John Infante, a former athletic department compliance officer and the author of the essential Bylaw Blog, for an interpretation. Infante wrote that since the cash drop is open to any student, then it would not qualify as an extra benefit for a Georgia State athlete.
