"Literally": it will always come back to bite you in the ass. A Marquette student has made good on a promise he shouted out while attempting to distract Providence guard Kris Dunn during a game on Wednesday. As Dunn approached the foul line late in the game, Jamey Schilling screamed, "I will literally pay you $10 if you miss this shot." Dunn missed the shot, and now Schilling is out ten bucks.

Schilling is a writer for the Marquette Wire, the student newspaper, so he knows a thing or two about college sports and the NCAA. Specifically, he knows athletes are not supposed to be paid, since that would be an impermissible benefit. So rather than send Dunn the $10 directly, he made the check out to Providence Athletics. It might be of little consolation to the Friars considering they lost the game, 96-91, in double overtime, but you can't say Schilling's not a man of his word.

After news spread, Marquette sent Schilling a letter of their own.

Good thing he's not an athlete.
