Dick Tomey put his head in the hands, wondering what he had just done.
The former Arizona Wildcats football coach had just auctioned off the use of his house in Hawaii for a week, with the winning bid going to a quartet of his former players, and, oh, the trouble they could get into.
Well, maybe if they were 20 years younger.
And it could have been worse.
Rob Gronkowski, still in his prime as an NFL party boy, could have won the bid.
As it was, Heath Bray, Ty Parten, Tim Russell and Paul Glonek combined for a $9,000 bid at a UA-star-studded fundraiser in May for former Arizona linebacker Donnie Salum, battling a rare bone tumor at the base of his skull.
Tomey, who continues to lead the charge for awareness and further fundraisers for Salum — check out BearDownDonnie.com for updates — offered a week at his place, any time.
