NCAA is a paper tiger
« on: October 13, 2017, 10:28:32 AM »
The NCAA today released its decision in the long-running North Carolina academic fraud matter.

The decision?  North Carolina did nothing wrong.

A department chair was issued a show cause order.

A secretary was the bad actor but the secretary was not issued a show cause order.

their defense was that it was a systemic academic problem not limited to players. the ncaa couldn't find proof that was not true. this will be quickly be addressed by the ncaa - as always a day late and a dollar short - because it presents a huge loophole.

They've been powerless and spineless for quite some time now. The whole Cam Newton debacle sealed their fate.

They do have the power to force the North Dakota Fighting Sioux to change their name immediately!

If you cannot find North Dakota on a map it is three states over from the state with the Fighting Illini.

Also: The panel noted that its ability to determine whether academic fraud occurred at UNC was limited by the NCAA principle relying on individual member schools to determine whether academic fraud occurred on their own campuses.

If the NCAA lets Ole Miss wriggle out of the noose I propose converting the top level of the new NEZ into the J Frank Broyles Student Athlete Bordello.

Cheat all you want.  Just don't get caught paying athletes a dollar more an hour than that paper tiger thinks they should or your program is toast.

Someone needs to post that letter their school President wrote the NCAA comparing them to Florida State, who didn't have to change their mascot.

On UNC, they spent 18 MILLION dollars defending themselves in this. For "amature" athletics.

The NCAA is very good when going after smaller schools. Or us. Or anyone that doesn't matter. It makes them appear to be doing their job.

NCAA pretty much exists to keep the labor costs down.
Academic fraud?
Pffftttt, that ain't in their wheelhouse. Anyone thinking they were gonna white knight that one in any kind of respectable fashion was fooling themselves.

Thankfully, the FBI ain't.

Tar heels better enjoy their Teflon status now, cuz once more heads roll in the bureau's bb payola investigation, they too will have to answer for their sins
