My first game was Baylor in 1997 with my dad. We had moved to a suburb of Toledo from New Jersey just the year prior and I didn't understand the whole Michigan vs. Ohio State rivalry. I remember my friends at school that first year asking me who I cheered for and having absolutely no idea what to say.
I can still see the train tracks as we crossed them on Hoover - that's about my only memory outside of the stadium. I'm fairly sure the weather was great; we had seats on the visitor's side; about sixty rows up somewhere around the twenty yard line.
We won big that day, 38-3, and the experience was absolutely breath-taking. Over 100,000 people crammed into the stadium to watch a football team play and I remember thinking to myself, "it doesn't get any better than this."
I was a fan from that day forward and by the time November rolled around I knew exactly who I was rooting for.
Fast forward seven-ish years and I find out I've been admitted to my dream school, the University of Michigan. It wasn't even a discussion, I was going to Michigan. I spent four (okay fine, five) of the greatest years of my life there and made some life-long friends. I wouldn't trade any of my time there for anything. In fact, some of those life-long friends and I are renting a house for a game next month so we can enjoy Ann Arbor like we did a decade ago.
None of this would have happened had my dad not decided to take me to that game almost two decades ago.

Also the player has to meet certain criteria to qualify. Namely, there has to be a financial inability for the player or player's family to afford such a policy.

I believe Wisconsin did the same thing for Gordon. The university is allowed to pay for one type of policy where it will pay out if the player experiences a career-ending injury. However, there is another type where the policy will pay out if the player experiences a large drop in draft stock. Im fairly sure the NCAA prohibits universities for paying for this type of policy.

Ah! I can see how it might be taken that way. However, my speculation was on grounds it was with another man. The way the university worded it was super fishy.

Perhaps I'm missing it, but where exactly in this article does it say this relationship was with an adult woman? Seems to me the university was awfully careful in its wording.
