This Is The Coolest Thing Going

New, comments

Courtney Paris's promise to repay her scholarship money if Oklahoma doesn't win the national title is the single coolest going right now, temporarily replacing The Snuggie and $8,000 tax credits on new home purchases.  That's quite an accomplishment.

Oklahoma's Courtney Paris has not only guaranteed that the Sooners will win the NCAA women's basketball title, she's willing to put up her scholarship to back it up.

In a speech on senior night last week, Paris said that if the third-ranked Sooners don't win the title, she'll give back her scholarship money, valued at close to $64,000, according to a story in The Oklahoman.

"I have a passion for our fans and university, and I want to do something special," Paris said, according to The Oklahoman. "That's why I put my scholarship on the table. I meant what I said."

I don't care who you are, that's awesome.  Means a lot more than simply guaranteeing a win and then sulking with your tail between your legs when it doesn't happen.
