Houston Cougars Allowed To Donate T-Shirts After All


((HT: Houston Roundball Review/NASA.gov))

Houston Cougars head coach Kelvin Sampson had a hell of an idea on how to help those who lost everything from Hurricane Harvey...

He, and women's soccer coach Diego Bocanegra, decided to ask fellow athletic programs and franchises to donate t-shirts and shoes to the folks in southeast Texas that would have included high-school athletes and students.

Seriously...

The NCAA has seen how this could look and have granted a waiver...

"Somewhere along the line, this rule makes sense," AD Hunter Yurachek said. "But nobody thought to put in an exception like a natural disaster. The NCAA gets a bad rap, but the NCAA just enforces the rule that the membership introduces and votes on."

The donations should start going out to those who need it next week...

Well done, Indianapolis...
