"Just gotta keep balling out"
The NCAA allows players that participate in Bowl games to be allowed up to $550 in gifts from the bowl organization. Russell Athletic participants receive a cool watch, a $470 Best Buy Gift Card and something else.
Beamer spoke to the players before they left, about the joy of giving. You can watch him talk to them in the video on the pay side of beamerball.com. If you have a subscription I would check it out.

Exum lives his life just like he plays football.
Doesn't surprise me that you would be confused.

Got to go to a bowl game.
So Tariq and Marcus helped out too? Wow, we have some quality young men on this team. In the end that has to be close to $600 dollars in gifts. Trust me, I've been a gamer since I was little. I know how much this stuff costs.
Cody chipped in on the Christmas spirit as well.
