Gene Smith should open a consulting firm negotating contracts for high level executives

Pursuant to his contract, Gene Smith gets an $18k bonus in exchange for Logan Stieber winning another national championship in wrestling.  Interestingly, the OSU wrestling team only gets 9.9 scholarships for 39 members of the wrestling team.  In other words, it's not going to shock me if those scholarships are getting divided up among the team so that Logan doesn't even get a full ride to school.  Maybe Gene could at least buy him a pizza ..... no, wait ....that'd be an NCAA violation.   Good for you Gene - a kid in an individual sport wins 3 national titles, you get bonus money for his efforts, and the rulebook prohibits you from helping him out.  Slow clap for you, sir, slow clap indeed.

Gene:  please donate that money to a worthwhile charity.
