08:18 AM ET 06.08 | Rachel McCoy made a few headlines during a Tuesday radio appearance. McCoy, wife of former Longhorns quarterback Colt McCoy, dialed up a national radio program unprompted and suggested players at Texas had accepted improper benefits while in Austin. ... "Regularly it's just dinner. People in Texas are just being friendly, they don't mean anything by it at all. They don't realize realize most of the time it's a violation. At Texas you're taught to take absolutely nothing, I don't care if it's a hot dog or soda. But you've got guys, grown adult men with law degrees -- educated men -- what are they going to gain out of this? It's to say, 'Hey, I bought so and so dinner, hey I took so and so to do this' ... It's grown men and their pride. You cannot expect 19-20 year old kids to say no to free stuff when they're in college."

Those have got to be the most unrealistic expectations I've ever heard of. The gall of expecting 19-20 year old kids to say no.

These 19-20 year olds need to channel their 10-14 year old selves....the first words when asked to do something at that age is "NO" with a big side of attitude!

A culture of eating at Texas. You can see this for yourself at any N. Texas Wal Mart.

I think Rachel wears the pants in her house. I bet she would've played in the BCS championship game.

Big time lawyers taking players out to dinner...sounds innocent enough

But then we all said that tOSU tats were nothing major.....

Don't want to get the NCAA Headlights focused on your school and they start investigating. The Tats turned into emails and more.....

I think she's suggesting a culture of violations in CFB but yeah that headline looks better. I know this, someone got a nice spanking last night.

She's probably only speaking about what she has witnessed. She has no knowledge of any other school.
