A photo of Gabe Ikard shouting in jubilation from courtside while he dons an Oklahoma City Thunder T-shirt appeared in USA TODAY. It's left a lot of questions out there. Here's the explanation: Ikard isn't in trouble for the court side tickets, and OU athletics' compliance was happy it didn't have any paperwork to do over it. There was no foul play in getting those playoff seats.

“You would be amazed at how much I've gotten for that photo,” Ikard said. “I've done everything for that photo. It ended up in the USA TODAY and I was like, ‘Oh, no.'”

So, whose tickets were they? His girlfriend of “mmm, about four months now,” he said.

“She'll be really happy to know this is getting out there,” Ikard said. “Excellent. Great.”
