    You can check out the full story here,

    TLDR; Ann Arbor sneaker re-seller bought shoes off of a third party that belonged to a player on the 2017 team, re-sold them on StockX. Carbon copy of what was going on at UNC that handed multiple players suspensions.

    Maybe it’s just me, but if a student athlete receives something for his own use that’s not connected to his athletic commitments on the field (or court), then it becomes his property and he should be able to do with it whatever he wants.

    They should have to play their first game in their socks.

    Bought a pair, because the Ebay ad said "GO Big Blue." It was a disappointment, and they are too B1G.

    Shoes are nothing.

    Now if it was tattoo's, that would be something.

    That would actually be a fair and just punishment for this atrocity.

    So far, no current players have been shown to have sold their sneakers.

    If it broke a rule, throw the book at them. If it didn't, who cares.

    That's it then, Michigan has to vacate all their wins from the 2017 season.

    That is what is so weird to me. An engineering student can start his own business while in school and every thing is ok.

    If a student-athlete does that they can no longer play sports because they are using their image to make money.

    So a high level booster can come in and "pay" that athlete whatever he wants for it and that would be ok?

    The topic was shoes, not cash. If someone receives a gift, it's either theirs or its not theirs. If it's theirs, they can sell it. If it's not theirs to do with as they please, then why do they have it in the first place?

    Was there a link from the OP? Looks like a mod edited his post. Otherwise I'd have to call Burger King on this.

    Well then I'm with Mel, if they were given the shoes as a gift and they don't want them, why I don't know they look cool and are exclusive to you and your teammates, why can't they sell them? Doesn't make much sense but thanks for the link. I see it's tied into the UNC situation.

    You would’ve had more credibility if you said you heard it at Burger King.
