The UCLA Bruins withheld living expenses checks from players who didn't participate in recent workouts, which were either voluntary or mandatory depending on who you asked (but which definitely came during finals week). Payments were made once the staff realized no checks meant no meals, shortly after players took to Twitter.
And take to Twitter they did, complaining of empty stomachs and brisk showers:
@generalspankyy We are being held from our checks because we chose not to participate in voluntary workouts. This is fucked up. its against ncaa violations
WAI_51DE No check, no food, no hot water, NO LOVE!! What the hell is going on around here?!
