Will the Florida Gators fundraising scandal bring NCAA sanctions? It’s anybody’s guess how far the scandal will spread and what effect it will have on the defending national champion Florida Gators football team.
The scandal erupted when the University of Florida’s new “Gateway of Champions” fundraising campaign offered Gator boosters unprecedented opportunities to both support and enjoy the school’s powerhouse football program. For a mere $5 million dollars, you can join the team for breakfast and ride the bus with them to a game.
Even worse, the Florida Gator’s fundraising scandal has caught up returning star quarterback Tim Teboe in it’s nefarious web. Boosters were asked to cough up $25,000 for the so-called “Very Nice Gator Experience” which included a chance at a Gator souvenir that all true Gator fans covet, a choice sampling of Tim Teboe’s toenail clippings.
Other’s caught up in the scandal investigation at the University of Florida include Coach Urban Meyer’s next door neighbor, who not only charges $10,000 to allow visitors to sit on his deck and gawk at the coach’s family, but also offers brown bags stuffed with choice morsels from Urban Meyer’s dog’s droppings.
With millions of dollars flowing in, the cash transactions triggered a federal investigation that cleared the money as not being counterfeit, but no one knows how to stop the cash flow itself. Currently, students are being paid to launder the cash in residential dorm laundry facilities before returning the scandal funds to Florida Gator fundraisers.
