There's investigations and then there's this. Paying for prostitution, abortion and bounties on opposing QB's?


Reggie Bush' parents got free rent for a house in San Diego and several years later it came to light. The Trojans had to abandon wins, suffer scholarship losses and 2 years bowl restrictions.
Then you have schools like Ohio State and Miami where the NCAA prolly will do less to the schools. The NCAA needs to be abolished in favor of a new ruling body.

Somone would have thrown cash, girls, cars, etc in my face in college and I would have done the same thing.

Someone throws cash, girls and cars at me for doing what I love to do anyway, and I'm taking it.

And I am way past college age.

Show me where the yacht is docked and I am there in a heartbeat.

I am all for the NCAA trying to keep college ball fair and competitive. But since I am not a huge college football fan, I can't say I care much about a players actions or decisions while in college. I care about their playing ability, and their character. These are both evaluated by coaches and scouts, so I trust in them to make the right decisions when drafting players.

However, it is very easy to understand how people can despise these kind of actions, because players who make decisions against NCAA regulations affect their schools, not just themselves. It is very selfish to undermine the NCAA when the ramifications can damage a schools reputation and accomplishments, as well as affect other players.
