Former Oklahoma lineman's odd affidavit

sports.yahoo.com Published: May 14, 2014

Who knew that a relationship for a college athlete could be similar to one involving someone becoming a U.S. citizen through marriage?

Yahoo Sports reports former Oklahoma center Gabe Ikard said last week that he and his girlfriend had to sign an affidavit proving their relationship was real for the Oklahoma compliance office. Seriously.



His girlfriend has courtside seats to Oklahoma City Thunder games, so he's prominently on television whenever he's in attendance. Oklahoma, still presumably reeling from the excessive pasta violations, wanted to ensure that Ikard was not committing a NCAA violation with the tickets being impermissible benefits.
