Now that we’ve established that NCAA sports is all about the student athletes thanks to some educatin’ by Oregon University prez David Frohnmayer, we were shocked to find out that the University of North Carolina Athletic Department is selling the Tyler Hansbrough autographed segments of the Final Four floor.

SHOCKED, we tell ya, shocked!

How could this possibly benefit student athletes and the academic calendar? Surely, signing 250 pieces of wood must have interfered with Psycho T’s studies? Does that guy from Oregon know about this?

But, then again, they have already sold the nets piece by piece to, no doubt, purchase “school supplies."

Here’s a few excerpts from the email we got:

Limited Edition of 250!

As the final buzzer sounded and the 2008-09 North Carolina Tar Heel Men's Basketball Team began celebrating their 5th National Championship, Tyler Hansbrough stated, "This is the best way to go out. I couldn't picture it any other way."

For a limited time you have the opportunity to own an actual piece of the Championship Floor, signed by one of the All-Time Great North Carolina Players, Tyler Hansbrough. This is a 6 x 6 section of the floor, taken directly from Ford Field immediately following the Tar Heels 2009 Men's NCAA Basketball Championship. There are only 250 Tyler Hansbrough Signed Final Four Floor pieces. Like the 12 x 12 multi-signed piece, it is expected this will sell out in a couple weeks, so don't be left on the bench, order now before it is too late.

This is not a replica, but an actual piece from the floor the players captured their fifth title on! Each collectible includes its own Certificate of Authenticity from memorabilia leader Steiner Sports.

Note: A $13 handling charge will be applied upon checkout.

PRICE: $199.99

As a famous boxer once said (and, yes, you’re gonna have to be a bit long in the tooth to get the reference) “Unbelievable, Howard, unbelievable.”
