NCAA Issues/Scandals/Corruption

I think NCAA may be forced to act on Kansas, et al.

You're kidding, right? The FBI made its arrests in Sept of 2017. How many of those "disgraced" coaches are still coaching? And at those same schools?

Arizona acknowledges it has received a Notice of Allegations from the NCAA but says it won't release it "in order to protect the integrity of the ongoing enforcement process."

Haha. They have a strange definition of "integrity"

I don’t know why they even bother with this stuff any more. Everyone knows nothing is really going to happen.

NCAA is a complete joke. It's obvious to everyone at this point. There is absolutely no incentive to run a "clean" program anymore

Yup. If we perform to expectations and start making some real dough for the NCAA, seems like it's in our best interest to get sanctions. After all, if you run a blatantly dirty program, get sanctions, and still rope in top recruits, you get your cake and eat it too.

Keep in mind that the NCAA definition of "clean" is 'out of sight'. And if you make a mess, sweep it back under the rug to get it out of sight, OR ELSE!!*

*They will find a mid-major or small program to make an example of. You've been warned

I feel like Illinois is a program that the NCAA would use as an example if they got caught. Call it a hangover from Satan, but they never found anything on Deon Thomas, yet Illinois was given probation

Somebody on Reddit said that you should be required to announce it for a future season so players can have the chance to use their transfer and so recruits can know before they sign.

That makes too much sense so you know the ncaa will never do it.

Auburn men's basketball program self-imposing postseason ban for 2020-21 season (msn.com)

Nice one Pearl, ban yourself when there is a good chance there may not be a post season.

As a punishment, I like the idea of a post-season ban coupled with giving athletes the ability to transfer with immediate eligibility. Would really put some teeth into enforcement. Combine that with banning the coach, and you might see some restraint or adherence to the rules.

Unfortunately, the rules are such a cluster* that no amount of reform on the enforcement side is going to clean things up. As long as recruiting is set up to keep athletes from getting their market value, and redirect revenue from the player to the NCAA, the market will continue to try and correct the problem. The worse the system, the worse the problem will be.

The NCAA in its present form is in a free fall. With the new transfer rules, player likeness rules, and other possible changes allowing the players larger stipends, they will have little to no ability to enforce or prove anything imo. Not that they really do now except a few isolated cases. I mean look how long it's been taking when the FBI basically did all the work. The NCAA still has no idea what to do with the information thrown in their lap. They are a joke and everyone knows it. Eventually something new will replace it, but I don't know when or what that will look like.
