The Oklahoma Sooners aren't taking any chances when it come to breaking NCAA rules.

Or when it come to breaking scales.

Bob Stoops' football program recently self-reported three players for eating too much pasta at a graduation banquet, according to The Oklahoman.
 
This was clearly done in jest to mock the ridiculousness of the NCAA rules put in place to police unpaid student athletes; but just in case, the three were asked to donate $3.83 each to charity in order to have their eligibility reinstated. That was the cost of each pasta serving.
 
Offensive linemen Gabe Ikard confessed via twitter that he was one of carbo-loading culprits.
To their credit, the NCAA released a statement saying that what the three players did was not a violation of any NCAA rules.
