Oklahoma AD says school will purchase food truck for athletes
Oklahoma athletic director Joe Castiglione told ESPN the school is looking to purchase a food truck.
According to athletic director Joe Castiglione, Oklahoma will deliver unlimited food and snacks to its student-athletes in the same way that you and I obtain dinner at street festivals: a food truck.
Castiglione told ESPN.com that the school is in the process of purchasing a truck that can move to different locations to service as many student-athletes as possible. The food truck is partly possible thanks to a new NCAA rule, passed in April, that allows schools to provide unlimited snacks and meals to its athletes.
"We don't have facilities in all the places they would need to be, so the idea is to have a mobile fueling station and perhaps some additional trailers that have refrigeration capabilities that can operate as a prep kitchen of sorts," Castiglione said.
Castiglione stresses that the truck is "not about largesse or excessiveness" and more about "putting ingenuity to work," but does say that he fears the new rule will create an unnecessary competition of sorts.
One way to one-up Oklahoma, should a school want to engage in the food and snacks arms race, would be to offer multiple food trucks to its student-athletes and once a month host a food truck rodeo for the student body.
