Sometimes one serving just isn’t enough. That’s the conclusion three University of Oklahoma football players came to at a graduation banquet last year.

In May of 2013, the players ate more pasta than they should have, according to the university, and in order to have their eligibility reinstated were required to pay $3.83 each to cover the cost of their gluttonous indulgence (they eventually paid up $5 a piece, they said, because they felt $3.83 was an unfair price for the pasta, which they clearly found to be delicious).

The Oklahoma Sooners valiantly turned themselves into the NCAA for the infraction but the NCAA issued a statement clarifying that “there are no NCAA rules regarding portion sizes.”
