Who Breaks The $2000 per year limit first, SEC or tOSU?

There is a group of folks who think that providing a cash stipend to student athletes is going to reduce the tendency of rule breaking in our esteemed institutions of higher learning.  

The story goes .......The poor kids who can't afford a bag of chips and a can of coke on friday night will now have at least a bit of spending money............ they will be less likely to be susceptible to illicit  "AGENTS" getting them free tatoos and rental cars on Saturday afternoons..........peace and love will return to the campus..........  

Now the NCAA has made it official.  The KIDS can get up to $2,000 cash per year, in addition to room, board, tuition, tutoring, coaching, etc.

First, I should say that I think this is a good idea.  This rule will give the kids some cash, and will keep the good recruits coming to BCS schools who can afford the extra cash. But........

My point of view is that cheaters will cheat.  If the cash limit was $100,000 per year,   somebody would probably be giving their 'student athletes'  $250,000 per year.  You still have to compete, you know?

So, my question is not if or when..... but WHO will be the first to get caught breaking this rule by giving more than the $2,000 limit?

Can we get a POOL set up on BSD to bet on the first school to break this rule?

My money would be on any SEC school, but I guess we should not rule our B1G tOSU.

Buddy, can you spare me a dime?
